At Raglan, we view studying a language as an entitlement for pupils regardless of their background and ability.  Learning a language provides an opening to other cultures, fosters pupils’ curiosity and deepens their understanding of multicultural Britain and the wider world.

Raglan pupils are first exposed to Spanish, our chosen language, in lower key stage 2. Lessons are purposefully designed to be an engaging, fun introduction to language learning with the aim that pupils foster an interest and appreciation for language learning. In Spanish lessons, children develop essential communication skills- both speaking and listening. Carefully sequenced lessons enable our pupils to understand that languages have a different grammatical structure to their own and prepare them for further language study in key stage 3.


Our curriculum is supported by the Language Angels scheme. The scheme is adapted to suit the needs of our children and accompanying lesson plans are designed to meet all the targets of the KS2 programme of study.  These have been broken down to provide specific targets for each year group to ensure language progression over the two years.  The weekly lesson plans include resources to support children working at all levels of ability and needs as well as to extend the more able in order to meet the needs of all pupils. 

All classes will have access to a high-quality foreign languages curriculum by using Language Angels scheme of work and resources to complement the short term planning. This will progressively develop pupil skills in foreign languages through regularly taught and well-planned weekly lessons in key stage 2 which will be taught by class teachers.

Children will progressively acquire, use and apply a growing bank of vocabulary, language skills and grammatical knowledge organised around age-appropriate topics and themes - building blocks of language into more complex, fluent and authentic language.
