Spanish

With more then 437 million native speakers, across twenty-one countries, Spanish is one of the most important languages in the world. Learning a language such as Spanish is liberation from insularity and provides an opening to other cultures. Through learning Spanish, we promote students’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of different countries’ peoples, culture, history, literature and art.

A high-quality Spanish language education should foster students’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world around them. The teaching should enable young people to express their ideas and thoughts in Spanish and to understand and respond to native speakers, both in speech and in writing. The Harris Academy Wimbledon Spanish curriculum will provide students with opportunities to communicate for practical purposes, learn new ways of thinking and read great literature in its original language. In addition to this, learning Spanish will provide the foundation for learning other languages, and will enable students to study and work in other countries.

A rich extracurricular and cultural offer forms an integral part of our Spanish curriculum. Trips, events and competitions help bring Spanish to life and have a significant impact upon student motivation, a key determiner of a child’s success in learning a language.

The Key Stage 3 Spanish curriculum must:

  • develop the breadth and depth of students’ competence in listening, speaking, reading and writing, based on a sound foundation of core grammar and vocabulary
  • enable students to understand and communicate personal and factual information in Spanish about their immediate needs and interests
  • provide students with tools to be able to understand and respond to spoken and written Spanish language from a variety of authentic sources
  • enable students to speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say
  • promote an insight in to the culture of Spanish speaking countries
  • develop students’ linguistic skills which will support communication and will prepare them for key stage 4 qualifications
  • inform students on career opportunities that will be open to them if they can speak Spanish

The Key Stage 4 Spanish curriculum must:

  • explore listening, speaking, reading, writing and translation and develop these skills across a wide range of topic areas
  • enable students to understand and communicate personal and factual information that goes beyond their immediate needs and interests, developing and justifying points of view in speech and writing, with increased spontaneity, independence and accuracy
  • enable students to speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation
  • increase students linguistic competence so that they can communicate and express themselves confidently and with a high level of accuracy
  • develop students cultural awareness and knowledge about Spanish-speaking countries cultures.
