The Spanish curriculum aims to equip students with the necessary knowledge and skills to develop their language in different context, as well as a deep understanding of the culture of Spanish-speaking countries.
Our curriculum hopes to develop passionate linguists who are resilient, independent learners. Our learners will develop as confident speakers in Spanish and have a strong awareness of the culture of Spanish-speaking countries.
We aim to ensure that students have benefited from opportunities to experience aspects fo the culture through educational visits and the regular use of authentic materials. This will allow students to explore different cultures and open their minds up to the rest of the world, which will develop them into global citizens and open wider career opportunities.
The curriculum will ensure the following:
Exposing students to as much target language as possible.
Instilling a love for Spanish and inspiring students in the journey of learning a new language.
Assessing their knowledge regularly in lessons and in formal assessments.
Monitoring their progress and implementing new strategies to stretch and challenge all students accordingly.
Promoting Spanish in extra-curriculum activities.
The curriculum will develop language learners who have a sound understanding of Spanish grammar, which includes the ability to apply it in new context and the ability to use and understand a minimum of three tenses confidently.
Students will be encouraged to grow as inquisitive linguists, having developed an understanding of etymology and how languages are interlinked. The curriculum will allow students to progress readily to the next stage of their language learning, proud of their linguistic achievements.
Curriculum Theological Underpinnings
“All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages as the Spirit enabled them.”
The giving of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost was seen as a reversal of the confusion at the Tower of Babel. We want our students to have an international outlook and learn to communicate with all people to overcome barriers that divide us.
