Aims of Enrichment Placement

To create resources for the school for when Modern Foreign Languages becomes compulsory at Key Stage 2 in September 2013

To introduce Key Stage 2 pupils to simple beginner’s Spanish


Topics resourced for:

  • Greetings
  • Introductions
  • Asking how other people feel/answer
  • Numbers 1-20
  • Months
  • Birthdays
  • Days of the week
  • Family members
  • Weather
  • Transport

Activities in lessons:

Games- snakes and ladders, slap, noughts and crosses, guessing games

Speaking surveys- talking to each other

Cross curricular- simple maths equations in Spanish

*signs around school*


Results within school

Great enthusiasm from pupils and staff- something different and new

Some of the more ‘difficult’ pupils engaged

Some of the less able pupils making excellent progress in comparison to literacy where they might struggle- find yourself differentiating for pupils who might not normally need extra help

Pupils using target language around school to their usual class teachers (and me) and eager to do more to impress their parents/family at home


What needs to be done to ensure the success of MFL at KS2?

Resources need to be further and continuously developed by schools to keep up with pupil interest

Pupils need to receive regular exposure to the target language in order to benefit from the lessons they (will) receive.

The subject needs to be taught by somebody with the correct skills and experience

It needs to be viewed by schools in the same light as other subjects and assessed accordingly

Liaison with secondary schools to ensure progress at Key Stage 3 and beyond


What did I get from the experience?

I feel I made a difference – the pupils were learning and were having fun

I feel I achieved in areas I was lacking in at the end of the main placement

I was enjoying what I was doing again
