To what extent can MFL be implemented across the primary curriculum?

Over the next two weeks I will be on a specialist language placement in KS2.

I will be observing and teaching Spanish classes from year 3 up to year 6 and will also be observing and teaching core and foundation subjects. The aim of this is to identify opportunities where MFL could be integrated into the primary curriculum. This could simply be in the form of classroom commands and/or translating the actual content of a lesson into Spanish.

I will consider the implications that the integration of MFL may have in the classroom and will also consider the benefits over the following 2 weeks.

I will also be discussing with the children what their favourite parts of language learning are and why they think that they are useful. How would they feel if part of their maths lesson was done in Spanish?
