Marlborough Primary School


It is essential to master at least one other modern foreign language (MFL).

We believe that to be successful in this area of the curriculum our pupils should start learning in the Early Years and that lessons should be fun, interactive and immersive. For that reason, our Spanish teaching begins in nursery and each child has a weekly lesson throughout the school taught by a fully qualified teacher who is a native speaker. 

Our pupils are taught by a native Spanish speaker and will enjoy learning  through: 

  • songs
  • games
  • stories and
  • conversation

This will allow our pupils' too: 

  • use the language in real life, social and interactive contexts
  • read
  • write and
  • understand grammatical structures;

as we know that these are the fundamental components of successfully learning a language.
