AQA GCSE Spanish - Writing (Foundation) answer strategy - Question 3

AQA GCSE Spanish - Writing (Foundation) answer strategy - Question 3

This is a template that I prepared for my higher year 8 Spanish students and early KS4 in relation to answering a Writing Foundation Question 3. Please note that this is a template and can be reused for different topics. This one is related to the topic of free-time / holiday activities. Students begin by discussing the strategies and looking at the success criteria and marking scheme together with the teacher. They also revise some basic grammar rules (can be amended each time you do the task). They also look at the model answers and discuss usual mistakes and how to avoid / amend them. Then they play few verb conjugation games to revise some useful verbs. I included the snakes and ladders game as well as the dice game (see templates in the end of the presentation). They review their answers to the dice game using grammar rules and correct their answers. Consequently they work in pairs to prepare a response to another (but similar!) Question 3. Finally they do it individually and self/peer -assess their work. Please let me know if there are any problems / ideas!

Consequently they get on with reading the question and what is required from them and discussing the what they could include in their answer (both content and grammar structures). Then they make a break and play a dice game (can be prepared prior to the lesson or during the same - see template in the end of the presentation) and a learning grid to revise verb tenses. They then get back to the task and work in pairs to plan their answers. Finally they complete the task individually, discuss the success criteria and the marking scheme with the teacher and peer / self assess their work.
