Spanish at Holy Family.
At Holy Family Catholic Primary School we believe that the learning of a foreign language provides a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for our pupils. It helps them to develop communication skills, including key skills of speaking and listening and extends their knowledge of how language works. Learning another language gives children a starting point to find a new perspective on the world, encouraging them to understand their own cultures and those of others around them.
Our school provides age-appropriate Primary Languages learning opportunities to explore and gather for all our children from EYFS to KS2.
In our school, the focus language taught in our school is Spanish from Year 3 to Year 6 and the Long Term Plan indicates the units/areas taught throughout KS2.
