Silkmore Primary Academy


MFL Vision 

At Silkmore we offer weekly MFL lessons from Year two upwards focussing on the teaching of Spanish, the sessions will inspire and excite our pupils using a wide variety of topics and themes. All pupils will be expected to achieve their full potential by encouraging high expectations and excellent standards in their foreign language learning - the ultimate aim being that pupils will feel willing and able to continue studying languages beyond key stage 2.

The four key language learning skills; listening, speaking, reading, and writing will be taught and all necessary grammar will be covered in an age-appropriate way across the primary phase. This will enable pupils to use and apply their learning in a variety of contexts, laying down solid foundations for future language learning and helping the children improve overall attainment in other subject areas.


  • Curriculum sequenced from Y1 to Y6 to build on prior learning.
  • Cognitive Science and space retrieval activities used to revisit and embed learning.
  • Vocabulary sequenced, modelled, and applied throughout the lessons.
  • Step by step lessons enabling children to build on skills.
  • Purposeful, hands-on, and engaging learning opportunities
  • Objectives across all strands revisited and embedded within and across year groups and key stages to ensure cumulative fluency
  • access to different programmes and technology to ensure curriculum coverage.
