Languages at Valley

 

Learning a foreign language is a liberation from insularity and provides an opening to other cultures.’ - Languages programmes of study: Key stage 2 National curriculum in England.  

 

After many years of teaching German at Valley, during academic year 2022/23, Spanish is now taught in Key Stage 2 as the modern foreign language with the lessons being delivered by the Class Teachers. To support the teacher in the delivery of their Spanish lessons, Valley Primary School uses Language Angels. This platform offers a complete suite of teaching resources with interactive teaching materials for every lesson. The resources used in lessons have been developed by an experienced team of foreign language teaching specialists and linguists.

During this school year, each year group from Year 3 to Year 6 are accessing a range of introductory modules to familiarise themselves with core vocabulary and to allow them to hear and practise the correct pronunciation used in Spanish. The modules being studied in the Spring and Summer terms are set out below:
