We teach Spanish weekly across the school from Year 1 upwards. We have a curriculum map which uses songs, games and other engaging oral activities to encourage enjoyment and excitement whilst learning, as well as giving pupils opportunities to use language in real-life, social and interactive context. We also teach reading, writing, grammar and intercultural understanding explicitly, as we recognise these are key building blocks in learning a language.
We have a number of native Spanish speakers in the school (pupils and adults) who can support learning in Spanish and provide a model for pronunciation. We also have many local links with Spanish organisations, including the Spanish International School which is situated nearby.
Please find the progression map for Languages at Bevington below. This map details the skills and knowledge pupils are taught in each year through the school.
