Spanish at Bosbury

Children at Bosbury are doing so brilliantly in Spanish, and we are very lucky to have our lovely Spanish teacher Señora Symonds delivering such fantastic lessons.




Spanish is taught at Bosbury Primary School to children in all year groups.  

Each half term the children learn new Spanish vocabulary linked to a particular topic such as; ‘Food’, ‘Hobbies’ and the ‘Body’ to name a few.  These topics are relevant to the children and encourage the children to learn a language through a topic they are interested in.  

The emphasis throughout both Key Stages is to learn a language in a fun and engaging way.  Lessons consist of games, songs, role play, creative activities as well as taking part in activities that the children have expressed an interest in (such as a Spanish Café).  

In Key Stage One Mrs Symonds focuses on developing the children’s listening and speaking skills in the subject.  In Key Stage Two these skills develop further and also include a focus on reading and writing.  The children are encouraged to work at their own pace and no pressure is placed upon a child who finds learning a language difficult.  

Mrs Symonds has a passion for Spanish and wants children to have a positive experience of learning a language which will motivate them to continue learning a language in their years after Bosbury.




Here are some fantastic videos which last year's Class 5 produced!











Please see below for some of the key vocabulary for children to learn to help them develop their Spanish skills!

Our Class 5 children also acquired enough Spanish last year to be able to write a simple letter about themselves, and have recently posted their first letters to our Spanish school! Below are the fantastic letters produced by Honey and Abi en Español!





Last year's Class 5 also received the replies from their Spanish pen-pal friends, and we thought that they were incredibly cool ('guay')! The children have already started working on their next letter because their friends in Santa Eugènia de Berga are almost ready to send their next ones with some further exciting news!

Each child in Class 5 will be able to send their letters home so that they can treasure them forever.

The following link contains a variety of interactive games for children, not only to consolidate what they have learnt in lessons, but also to explore and expand this language even further using their knowledge of the Spanish phonetic system.
