MFL – Spanish


At St Oswald’s we work closely with the Liverpool Primary MFL team to ensure that the language content that we teach our children is accurate and delivery of this content is of a high standard. This year, planning has been under review to make sure that a more equal balance of the 4 skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening is evident within planning, including the ways that we can evidence and encourage students’ participation. The aim is to help our pupils become more rounded linguists and better equip them for the challenges they will face when language learning in Secondary school.

Currently, we are adapting our planning to reflect these changes and to run in conjunction with the objectives taught by our language assistant, adapted from the PMFL team’s planning. As these changes are new this year, we are in the process of making these adaptations; from September 2018, the new planning will be in place for all year groups.

Mrs Melissa Maloney is our language assistant; she is native to Peru so is therefore a fluent speaker of Spanish and English from her years spent living in the UK. Years 4, 5 and 6 are lucky enough to benefit from her expertise for a term each during the academic year.
