We will discuss a model with ultracold atoms confined in optical superlattices. In particular, we will study the ground-state properties of two spin-1 bosons trapped in a double-well potential. Depending on the external magnetic field and biquadratic interactions, different phases of magnetic order are realized. Applying von Neumann entropy and the number of relevant orbitals, we will quantify the bipartite entanglement between particles. Changing the values of the parameters determining the superlattices, we can switch the system between differently entangled states.
