At St. Joseph’s Camberwell Catholic Schools’ Federation, weekly Spanish lessons are taught to all children from year 3 to 6 by a native specialist Spanish teacher, Mr. Ó Balseiro, who teaches through songs, videos, games, interactive activities and lessons based on a practical communicative approach. 

En St. Joseph’s Camberwell School, un maestro nativo especializad, el señor Ó. Balseiro, imparte lecciones semanales de español a todos los niños desde año 3 a año 6 a través de canciones, videos, juegos, actividades interactivas y lecciones basadas en un enfoque comunicativo práctico. 

We understand how the learning of a foreign language is a great opportunity to acknowledge all cultures and languages while improving the children’s broader literacy and oracy skills. In addition, their confidence will grow while deepening their curiosity and understanding of the world.

Entendemos que el aprendizaje de un idioma extranjero es una gran oportunidad para conocer todas las culturas e idiomas, al mismo tiempo que mejora las habilidades orales y de escritura de los niños. Además, su confianza crecerá mientras profundiza su curiosidad y comprensión del mundo.

Children are given practical opportunities to apply what they have learned whilst covering the four basic language skills of speaking, reading, writing and listening. Through this, they will be well-prepared for the transition to Key Stage 3.

Los niños tienen oportunidades prácticas para aplicar lo que han aprendido mientras cubren las cuatro habilidades básicas de lenguaje: habla, lectura, escritura y audición. A través de ello, estarán preparados para la transición a la escuela secundaria (Key Stage 3).

Workshops, Spanish After School Clubs and many other activities are organised where children can experience and enjoy Spanish culture through films, food, and music.

Se organizan talleres, clubes extraescolares de español y muchas otras actividades donde los niños pueden experimentar y disfrutar de la cultura española a través de películas, comida y música.

This academic year our children can now enjoy and learn from one of the most succesful language websites, Languagenut, through interactive and fun Spanish activities, games and exercises. As a parent/carer, if you are also interested, you will be able to get involved too!

Our KS2 children have been given a username and password to access Languagenut anytime they want to work on their Spanish. Assignments are allocated to them regularly via the website, which focus on developing the four key language skills: writing, reading, speaking and listening.

They will be learning a large amount of topics such as "Animales Domésticos", "Números", "Hobbies", "Me gusta/No me gusta", "Verbos" ... and many more.

Please, support your child and encourage them to use Languagenut as much as possible as it will help them to improve their creativity, memory and concentration, along with respect for other cultures and love for languages.
