Timberley Academy


Learning a foreign language is a liberation from insularity and provides an opening to other cultures. A high-quality languages education should foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. The teaching should enable pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing. It should also provide opportunities for them to communicate for practical purposes, learn new ways of thinking and read great literature in the original language. Language teaching should provide the foundation for learning further languages, equipping pupils to study and work in other countries.


National Curriculum in England,  Languages programmes of Study (DfE 2013) 

From September 2014, Languages have been a statutory part of the National Curriculum at KS2.  The focus language at our school is Spanish.


At Timberley, we use the Language Angels scheme of work.  which has been adapted to suit our school.  The scheme covers the aims of the Programme of Study and throughout the children's four years of learning in KS2 they will cover a range of topics, including some linked to topics covered in IPC.  All units have a clear linguistic and grammatical purpose and the scheme allows children to listen to native speakers and encourages them to make links between Spanish and other languages they speak. 



These are the units KS2 will be covering in Autumn 2022:


Year 3 - Basic Conversation

Year 4 - Los Instrumentos (musical instruments)

Year 5 - Los Planetas (planets)**

 Year 6 - La Ropa (clothes)
