At St. Edmund’s Catholic Primary School we recognise that many children join our school with at least a receptive understanding of a second language and we celebrate this. Our chosen language for Modern Foreign Languages is Spanish and we follow a scheme called ‘Language Angels’. Each class covers five different units over the year learning vocabulary and grammar and practising their speaking (including phonics and pronunciation), listening, reading and writing skills. As we have only recently started teaching Spanish, there is some repetition across the year groups, but this will be adapted as the children move up through the school.
