AQA GCSE Spanish - Writing (Foundation) answer strategy

AQA GCSE Spanish - Writing (Foundation) answer strategy

These are the templates that I prepared for my higher year 8 Spanish students and early KS4 in relation to answering Writing Foundation Questions 1-4. They include different games and tasks to revise verbs conjugations and vocabulary to answer the questions. I also included the templates for some games and activities. These templates are totally amendable and adaptable to use with different topics and so far worked for my students. Please let me know how it goes!

AQA GCSE Spanish - Writing (Foundation) answer strategy - Questions 2 and 4 / Higher Question 1

AQA GCSE Spanish - Writing (Foundation) answer strategy - Questions 2 and 4 / Higher Question 1

This is a template that I prepared for my higher year 8 Spanish students and early KS4 in relation to answering a Writing Foundation Questions 2 and 4 // Higher Tier Question 1. The topic of this example is celebrations / festivals. Students begin by translating the short text into English and coaching each other if stuck at the same time assessing each other’s work. Then they revise some grammar by playing tarsia game (see template in the end of the presentation). 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. Please let me know if there are any problems / ideas!

New Spec AQA Grammar Sheet - Very Easy to Use and Visual

New Spec AQA Grammar Sheet - Very Easy to Use and Visual

I created this ‘all-in-one’ grammar sheet to make it easy for students and teachers alike to ensure that all aspects of the new AQA grammar requirements can be easily met and taught. It shows student visually the endings for each tense and whether it is a requirement to conjugate the tense or just to recognise it. It is double-sided to also provide students with a clear explanation as to when the tense is used for home-learning.

HUNDREDS OF ACTIVITIES TO COVER ALL 12 TOPICS IN GREAT DETAIL - I have covered as much vocabulary as possible (including the majority of the vocab lists in the textbook) and all key grammar points including MA grammar such as subjunctive/ personal a. Theme 1 (ks3 revision/ family/ relationships/ free time/ customs and festivals) - over 45 activities Theme 2 (home and local area/ social and global issues including healthy eating/ travel and tourism) - over 85 activities Theme 3 (studies/ life at school/ post 16 options and future careers) - over 85 activities Key grammar - all 8 tenses, prepositions, personal a and 3rd person opinions, regular and irregular verbs practice in all tenses including irregular past participles, questions, connectives, time expressions, using different tenses simultaneously. Writing/ Speaking/ Creation structure tasks to improve fluency when developing ideas. These are all original resources that have been developed over the course of the year and transformed into a4 booklets for my current year 11s. Each unit consolidates key vocab, gives students several opportunities to practice the vocabulary and grammar in different contexts - and most importantly the activities vary greatly - meaning they’re not super dry! I’ve also taken extra care to ensure all resources are attractive and easily accessible as I teach a mixed ability year 11 class (targets 3-8)
