A Bunbury International Speaker
At Bunbury Aldersey CE Primary School all children in KS2 have the opportunity to learn French and Spanish. Through our lessons we aim to instill in the children a confidence and enthusiasm for language learning which will provide them with key skills to continue their learnig in KS3 & 4 and beyond. We use authentic activities and resources (stories, songs, games etc) which use all four key skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening.
Children are encouraged to see links between knowledge of their own language and how that may help them learn another. The basics of French and Spanish grammar (gender, agreements. verbs etc ) are introduced gradually and are reinforced through repetition and practice using different topic areas. The planning guide attached is used as an ideal guide for topics to be covered over each year group however, work is often altered to follow the needs and progress of each class.
Children at Bunbury will have the opportunity to study French within years 3 and 4 and Spanish within years 5 and 6.
