  • Intent

    At Dersingham Primary school the aim is to develop a love of language learning that prepares pupils well for school and for life. We want to equip our pupils with skills that open doors to new opportunities and develop a curiosity about other cultures and an understanding of the wider world.

  • Implement

    Our Modern Foreign Languages curriculum has been designed to progressively develop skills and is taught by a specialist Spanish teacher. In our early years, pupils are introduced to Spanish through rhyme and song and this is continued and developed in Key Stage One with games and by learning simple greetings. In Key Stage Two the building blocks of the language- phonics, grammar and vocabulary- are taught through topics and themes. Pupils learn through games, practical activities, role play and song. Pupils also learn about the culture in Spanish speaking countries; themed days are enjoyed by pupils as visitors, workshops and cross-curricular projects bring the curriculum alive.

  • Impact

    Pupils become confident about learning a language because of careful listening, frequent practice and sustained effort. They are interested and excited to learn about different cultures and countries.

Spain visit

Children from the Brilliant club participated in a residential visit to Spain from 06.06.22- 10.06.22.  This was a fantastic opportunity for our pupils to experience Spanish life, history, culture and language. We travelled by coach to Gatwick Airport on Monday 6th June 2022   and headed for a flight to Bilbao Airport . On Friday 10th June 2022, we returned safely to Gatwick Airport and were back home after an indescribable and adventurous week. Throughout our time in Spain we had the opportunity to practice our Spanish. 

Some of the excursions that we participated in, in Cantabria northern Spain included: 

  • Picos De Europa via San Vincente De La Barquera 
  •  Fuente De Cable Car experience 
  • Excursion to Santillana, Altamira and Comillas  
  •  Excursion to Santander  
  • Visit to the Altamira Caves Museum 
  • Santander – Town Trail   

    We can’t wait to return to Spain in the NEXT YEAR!
