Key stage 2: Foreign language

Teaching may be of any modern or ancient foreign language and should focus on enabling pupils to make substantial progress in one language. The teaching should provide an appropriate balance of spoken and written language and should lay the foundations for further foreign language teaching at key stage 3. It should enable pupils to understand and communicate ideas, facts and feelings in speech and writing, focused on familiar and routine matters, using their knowledge of phonology, grammatical structures and vocabulary. The focus of study in modern languages will be on practical communication. 


Pupils should be taught to:

 listen attentively to spoken language and show understanding by joining in and responding


 explore the patterns and sounds of language through songs and rhymes and link the spelling, sound and meaning of words


 engage in conversations; ask and answer questions; express opinions and respond to those of others; seek clarification and help


 speak in sentences, using familiar vocabulary, phrases and basic language structures

At Adel Primary School, we love to learn Spanish!


Hola Amigos!

In Key Stage 2, we use a scheme of work called 'La Jolie Ronde' to help us become super Spanish linguists and in Foundation Stage/Key Stage 1, we use 'Little Language'.

We've been working so hard to improve our language skills and already, we can:

  • Count forwards and backwards to 10
  • Listen and follow classroom instructions
  • Say simple Spanish greetings and hold a short conversation
