At Burpham, we teach Spanish to all classes in years 2 - 6 using The Language Angels programme of study which provides an opportunity for children to learn a foreign language in a way that is enjoyable and stimulating.
Our Spanish curriculum is designed to progressively develop children’s skills in languages, through regular taught lessons. Children acquire, use and apply a growing bank of vocabulary organised around topics which include: numbers, colours, animals, food and drink, the classroom and at the cafe.
It is intended that when children leave Burpham Primary School, they will have a natural curiosity and confidence to explore other countries, cultures and languages, accepting that in a multi-lingual society it is a valuable skill to be able to communicate effectively with others in another language. We strive to embed the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing necessary to enable children to use and apply their Spanish learning in a variety of contexts and lay the foundations for future language learning.
