At Calverton Primary school the aim is to develop a love of language learning that prepares pupils well for school and for life. We want to equip our pupils with skills that open doors to new opportunities and develop a curiosity about other cultures and an understanding of the wider world.


Our Spanish curriculum has been designed to progressively develop skills and is taught by a specialist Spanish teacher. In Key Stage One, pupils are introduced to Spanish through rhyme and song and this is developed through practical activities, pupils will learn simple greetings. In Key Stage Two the building blocks of the language- phonics, grammar and vocabulary- are taught through topics and themes. Pupils learn through games, practical activities, role play and song. Pupils also learn about Spanish culture and Spanish speaking countries; themed days are enjoyed by pupils as visitors, workshops and cross-curricular projects bring the curriculum alive.


Pupils become confident about learning a language because of careful listening, frequent practice and sustained effort. They are interested and excited to learn about different cultures and countries.

Spanish Visit 2023 - Children from Calverton participated in a residential visit to Spain from last year. This was a fantastic opportunity for our pupils to experience Spanish life, history, culture and language. We travelled by coach to Gatwick Airport then headed for a flight to Bilbao Airport . At the end of the week we returned safely to Gatwick Airport and were back home after an indescribable and adventurous week. Throughout our time in Spain we had the opportunity to practice our Spanish.
