‘A high-quality languages education should foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. The teaching should enable the pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing.’ (National Curriculum 2014 – Appendix A)
At Drayton Community Primary School, we believe that the earlier a child is exposed to a foreign language, the faster and deeper the language is acquired. We consider that the early acquisition of Spanish, will facilitate the confident and successful learning of other foreign languages throughout KS 3/4 and later in life.
The intent of our MFL curriculum, is that children are taught to develop curiosity, confidence, knowledge, understanding, questioning, vocabulary, and communication in learning another language and its associated culture.
