Spanish

For more detail please see the Annual Overviews below.

Year 10

Students are expected to consolidate the skills begun in Year 9 and to further demonstrate a level of grammatical knowledge that they can use in terms of correct phonics (sound patterns) and correct use of adjectives and verb tenses. Students should be able to:

  • Understand Spanish when it is spoken to you, with a varying degree of difficulty.
  • Speak Spanish using sentences with mostly-correct pronunciation and apply phonic rules to unfamiliar language.
  • Understand familiar words and memorise unfamiliar words, creating an ever-increasing stock of ‘active’ vocabulary. Translate from and into Spanish. Describe photos and take part in role-plays and longer conversations.

Write with correct spelling, building sentences over time with past, present and future tense.
