Ms Pimenta is our curriculum leader for Spanish.
MFL Intent Statement
At the Trinity School, the intention of our MFL curriculum is to develop a lifelong love of learning other languages and a curiosity to learn about different cultures. We aim to deliver Spanish language lessons which are fun and interactive with a focus on developing the essential skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing, all embedded within a cultural context. We are committed to ensuring Spanish language learning continues through the provision of our blended curriculum with a focus on fun and engaging videos and activities.
Implementation for our MFL Curriculum
Our school Spanish curriculum is delivered throughout Key Stage 2 by Senorita Ferre, a native Spanish speaker. The curriculum follows the RRP Methodology (Repetition, Recognition and Production) and has been designed by School Improvement Liverpool. This scheme allows children to acquire a bank of vocabulary organized around topics and ensures language learning is progressive and builds on prior knowledge. MFL is also taught remotely through video lessons accessed through Seesaw and accompanying games and activities with a focus on practising new learning.
The Impact of MFL Curriculum
Throughout our Spanish lessons, pupils should respond to spoken and written language; speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity; ask questions and improve their pronunciation and intonation; write at varying lengths and develop an appreciation for Spanish language and culture.
