Spanish Assessment

"To learn a language is to have one more window from which to look at the world."

– Chinese Proverb


  • Prior knowledge – Children at Gawber revisit key words and phrases from previous year groups at the start of the year and are given opportunities to relearn these if knowledge has not been retained. Throughout the year, iLanguages provides opportunities for children to revisit knowledge and build upon prior knowledge at the start of each unit.


  • Verbal responses – Teachers allow children ample opportunities to talk during Spanish lessons, listening to their conversations and pronunciations so that they can monitor progress.


  • Lesson booklet - iLanguage provides a booklet of potential questions/ tasks for children to complete during lesson time to ensure knowledge is being applied and retained.


  • Assessment booklet – At the end of a unit/ end of the year, children are provided with assessment questions from iLanguages that link to the learning done in class.


  • Duo Lingo – Children are often given the opportunity to spend 5 minutes revisiting knowledge verbally so that the teacher can consider how the children are progressing with their pronunciations. This also provides opportunities for children to demonstrate their knowledge of reading, interpreting and understanding a language.


  • Pupil progress meetings – Using the above mentioned assessment opportunities and considering how the children have responded throughout the unit, teachers complete pupil progress documentation commenting on the progress and achievements of the children. Leaders can then consider ‘spotlight children’ from these pupil progress forms to monitor throughout the following term/ year.


  • Ready to Progress - This document provides the summative statements that are used to assess at the end of the year.
