GCSE Spanish - Reading Exam Questions - Holidays, Food, & Shopping - All Exam Boards

Get students used to the reading exam through these past-paper questions. Grouped by theme (Holidays, Food, and Shopping) but all higher tier, this resource can be printed as an exam pack, perhaps for the school holidays or as a long-term homework assignment; or printed as individual sheets to be used in class as starters, plenaries, or mini-assessments. All exam boards have been sampled, but all are relevant to the Holidays, Food, and Shopping theme. Also included is a mark scheme, designed to be printed as an A5 booklet. This allows either peer or self-assessment, or the work to be used by cover teachers who may not be subject specialists.

Spanish Festivals: La Tomatina - Spanish KS4 AQA Writing 3

Spanish Festivals: La Tomatina - Spanish KS4 AQA Writing 3

This is the lesson that I have prepared for my y9/y10 in relation to the topic of Spanish culture (Festivals & Celebrations). The lesson starts with the starter about San Fermin Celebration (photo card style) (it was previous lesson title and I always try to link things together) and following review of lesson outcomes we move onto to trying to sing along with Enrique Iglesias (click on the 3d man for the youtube link or search for a YouTube video with lyrics). Students will then recap on SER conjugation in present tense and learn new / revise already known vocabulary on the topic of La Tomatina celebration using Quizlet and Quizlet live online tools. I have then included a video (see link) of Rosa from SpanishPod101 (see their channel in youtube) describing the celebration of La Tomatina. Even though the video is in Spanish and Rosa speaks really quickly, there are subtitles in English so that all students have a chance to listen to a native speaker and at the same time understand what the video is about (note: I personally find the Spanishpod101 videos amazing as they address quite a few cultural / grammar / pronunciation and other aspects so I would recommend letting your students know that a lot of resources are available for free. Consequently, students answer quiz questions about the video and move on to the grammar activity. They revise present tense and then analyse how to form 'Impersonal SE' structures. Then they do a quick test to check understanding and move on to a Writing Section 3 activity (translation from English into Spanish). They self-assess it and play Pictionary. Please note that there is also a handout to make the tasks easier and faster to access. Enjoy!

Spanish Festivals: San Fermin - Spanish KS4 AQA Reading A

Spanish Festivals: San Fermin - Spanish KS4 AQA Reading A

This is the lesson that I have prepared for my y9/y10 in relation to the topic of Spanish culture (Festivals & Celebrations). The lesson starts with the starter about food (it was previous topic and I always try to link things together) and following review of lesson outcomes we move onto to trying to recite a tongue twister (plus a cultural SMSC tip!). Students will then recap on regular verbs conjugation in present tense and learn new / revise already known vocabulary on the topic of San Fermin celebration using Quizlet and Quizlet live tools. I have then included a video (see link) of Rosa from SpanishPod101 (see their channel in youtube) describing the celebration of San Fermin. Even though the video is in Spanish and Rosa speaks really quickly, there are subtitles in English so that all students have a chance to listen to a native speaker and at the same time understand what the video is about (note: I personally find the Spanishpod101 videos amazing as they address quite a few cultural / grammar / pronunciation and other aspects so I would recommend letting your students know that a lot of resources are available for free. Consequently, students answer quiz questions about the video and move on to Reading activity. They read the text aloud, search for cognates and keywords and finally answer the questions that I have tried to create in the style of AQA Higher Reading Section A. Please note that there is also a handout to make the task easier and faster to access. Enjoy!
