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!

Your Christmas Day - KS3/KS4 Spanish (AQA)- Observation 1c/2a

Your Christmas Day - KS3/KS4 Spanish (AQA)- Observation 1c/2a

This is a Christmas lesson that I created for my higher KS3/KS4 Spanish students and mainly for my lesson observation. The idea is to have some fun and to do some writing as well! The lesson starts with a friendly - easy starter and pronunciation slide to learn how to pronounce some Christmas / winter related words. Then we move on to a quizlet task to learn / revise some X-mas vocabulary and Rally Coach activity to check whether we remember the words. I have then included a conjugation activity with the Christmas verbs (you need some dices!) followed by a competitive translation activity (make sire you have similar ability students working together). The students then use a trap door structure (table) to speak about their Christmas day and then I tell them about my Christmas day in a similar manner as suggested by previous activity. I first use pictures only and then show them the model answer and the grammar success criteria. After they write down their responses we move on to playing quizlet live and Hangman. Enjoy!
