At St. Augustine's we aim to ensure that all pupils:

  • understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources
  • 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
  • can write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt
  • discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied.



Teaching a foreign language is a fundamental part of a primary schools education and the National Curriculum makes it mandatory from Year 3. However, at St. Augustine's we feel that children will pick up a foreign language easier from a younger age. Therefore we begin teaching Spanish from Year 1.  The lessons involve singing songs, basic Spanish language, and listening to the the common words used in Spanish.
