AQA GCSE Spanish - Reading Section B (Foundation) answer strategy / Aste Nagusia

AQA GCSE Spanish - Reading Section B (Foundation) answer strategy / Aste Nagusia

This is a template of a set of activities that I prepared for my higher year 8 Spanish students and early KS4 in relation to answering a Reading Section B Foundation task (questions and answers in Spanish) with elements of Part A to explain the main concepts. Please note that this is a template and can be reused for different topics. This one is related to the topic of festivals and celebrations. It is based on the texts about Aste Nagusia. The students read the texts aloud (Oracy!) in turns as a class and then play an ‘air writing’ game which basically means they are trying to locate the words that the teacher asks them to find. Next they do a similar task, trying to answer in Spanish in which line is the word the teacher asked them to locate. Next they annotate keywords in groups trying to translate as many unknown words as possible (in a group - coaching each other). They then play a quick tenses game to revise how to identify present, past, immediate future and conditional verbs and how to correctly translate them into English. Consequently they revise the strategies for approaching Reading Part A/B tasks and play a quick translation game. I then thought it would be useful if they quickly revise the Spanish question words by playing an online game (from the Language Gym website - free and useful!) and complete the Reading Part B task (differentiated). Please let me know if there are any problems / ideas!
