A series of tasks, based on a selection of texts exploring whether Graffiti could be called ‘Art’ or ‘Eyesore’. All students that I have ever taught have really enjoyed taking part in this and the debates it brought. Please leave a review and feel free to browse my other resources - many of which are free as I know how hard teachers work for too little money! Many thanks

Spanish speaking cards AQA A-level New specifications (3)

Spanish speaking cards AQA A-level New specifications (3)

Due to the high demand and positive reviews from my previous resources, I have made a third part with different cards, topics, etc. I hope it is really useful. These speaking cards are aimed for year 12 and year 13 students, according to the new specifications. I have been carefully looking at the changes in the speaking test in A-levels and looking at the exam papers given by AQA. Due to the lack of any past exam papers, I have decided to create my own so that students have plenty of resources to be ready for the new exams.

Spanish Summer holiday activity sheet - great end of term activity

Ideal for an end of term activity sheet on the topic of holidays - a wordsearch, a matching up, some colouring and a "find how many words you can make from "… It’s just a nice way to finish off the term with a fun activity but still learning/ consolidating the Spanish vocabulary and getting them ready for their holidays! I have edited the worksheet so it now says “Adoro las vacaciones” but it won’t change it on the preview
