Scheme of work

This Scheme of Work was originally developed in Enfield between 2005 and 2011 by a team of primary teachers, led by Jan Wilson. It was based around the original Key Stage 2 Framework for Languages, and took into account the QCDA materials. It has been extensively amended since the publication of the new Programme of Study for Key Stage 2 in 2013, and has been adopted as the Scheme of Work for the Hackney Learning Trust.  It is designed to be used by all those teaching Spanish at Key Stage 2, and to give additional support to  non-specialist teachers and TAs, and adapted by schools to suit their own needs.  Year 3 units are 1-6, year 4 units are 7-12, year 5 units are 13-18 and year 6 units are 19-22.  At the end of each unit you will find resources that are referred to in the lesson plans.  There are also details of resources, especially songs and video clips, within the lesson plans themselves.  This Scheme of Work now delivers all the requirements of the new Programme of Study for Key Stage 2.  At the beginning of each unit, before the lesson plans, are the KS2 PoS Objectives and Yearly Statements (with examples) for that particular unit.
