Spanish at Gresham
At Gresham Primary School, we are committed to ensuring that competence in another language enables children to interpret, create and exchange meaning within and across cultures. It also helps children develop skills that will open further opportunities later in life. The teaching of Spanish in KS2 provides an appropriate balance of spoken and written language and lays the foundations for further foreign language teaching at KS3.
In addition, we aim to develop the processes of understanding different cultures, people and the world around us, promoting international links and concentrating on communicating verbally and non-verbally in a foreign language and realising opportunities for work and travel abroad. We also aim to provide the children with opportunities to work through the essential elements and concepts of Primary Modern Languages which are oracy, Literacy, knowledge about language and cultural understanding.
