Spanish

Key Stage 3 Curriculum Content

Students will participate in several activities in each lesson, all designed to help them commit new language to memory and little by little to develop their ability to speak Spanish spontaneously. 

We believe in learning through enjoyment so playing language games, paired speaking challenges, using mini whiteboards and watching extracts of Spanish clips on Youtube for context and reinforcement are all integral parts of lessons.

Topics include:

Year 7
  • Self and family 
  • School 
  • Hobbies
  • Where you live
  • Free time and sports
Year 8 
  • Media
  • Holidays
  • Food and eating out
  • Clothes and fashion 
  • Health and illness
Year 9 
  • Social life
  • Jobs and careers
  • The Spanish-speaking world
  • Family and relationships 
  • Global issues.

Key Stage 4 Curriculum Content

Students who opt to study Spanish at GCSE will follow the AQA syllabus. The course builds upon the skills developed at key stage 3 and further develops fluency and depth on the following topics: 

1. Identity and culture
2. Local, national, international and global areas of interest
3. Current and future study and employment

Students are assessed on 4 skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) and can be entered either at foundation or higher level.
