Our Curriculum

At E-ACT Blackley we offer a “knowledge-rich” curriculum which maintains high expectations for all learners and deliberately and explicitly builds knowledge and vocabulary. We believe that knowledge and vocabulary are the nourishment on which learning behaviours depend. Each school subject area carefully considers the substantive, disciplinary and procedural knowledge required to grow excellent learners.

Modern Foreign Languages

Pupils from years 3 – 6 will receive one hour of Spanish teaching each week. We aim to encourage Spanish language acquisition through lessons consisting of a range of activities such as group work, speaking practice, games and songs. Lessons will also provide the opportunity for students to learn about the culture and geography of Spain and Latin America.
