Welcome to Caistor Yarborough Academy

Modern Foreign Languages

Within the Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) department at Caistor Yarborough Academy we offer students the opportunity to study Spanish at Key Stage 3 and 4.  In addition to focusing on language learning we also encourage Key Stage 3 students to learn more about Spanish culture through mini projects, films and history.  Students develop the ability to speak about a range of aspects of their own lives such as their family, school life and hobbies as well as be able to speak about employment and future plans. 

Key Stage 3​

The Key Stage 3 Curriculum uses the Viva! Program which involves the use of textbooks and online software such as Active Learn.  This allows teachers to build progression over time and ensures there are regular assessment points within each unit.  Within lessons, students are able to develop each of the 4 key strands of Spanish –Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening.  The grid below outlines how the Key Stage 3 Curriculum breaks down:
