Languages – curriculum information

At Broadacre, pupils in Key Stage Two study Spanish. As well as learning how to listen to, read, speak and write key phrases, pupils are taught to appreciate the culture of Spanish-speaking places around the world. A key emphasis is placed on the universal skills of language acquisition, ensuring that pupils develop an understanding of the building blocks of a language.

Our carefully-planned curriculum sequences learning so that pupils reconnect with prior learning, which is built upon within each unit of study.
