KS3 Spanish Cover Lesson Design your own City

KS3 Spanish Cover Lesson Design your own City

Lesson Covers: How to describe your city (imaginary!) - what's in it and what it has e.g. my city has a king, watchtowers, walls and a dragon. This works best as a cover lesson. It is easy for non-specialists to follow but supports and challenges KS3 students of Spanish well. Could also be adapted for use in lessons by specialists in order to revise 'what's in one's city / town'. It is helpful, but not necessary, if the students have some knowledge of connectives, adjectives and SER / TENER in Spanish. Important key words are provided in each activity of lesson. Dictionaries needed. Lesson involves: Differentiated objectives and starter (quick translation) activity. Activity 1: Teams work to look up words (in Spanish) used to describe what's in a city e.g. murallas, atalayas etc. Next slide gives answers to students so they can write down whatever they were unable to find. Activity 2: Differentiated translation task using key vocabulary they have just looked up in teams. Key words provided as well as higher challenge. Next slide contains answers for peer / self-assessment. Main and final activity: students design and label their own city using key words / sentences they have been working on throughout lesson. Again, this is differentiated by task with key works provided on ppt. Bubble snake review to finish.

Research project (Motivational triggers) for KS3 Spanish - La maquina del tiempo (AQA new spec)

Research project (Motivational triggers) for KS3 Spanish - La maquina del tiempo (AQA new spec)

This is a research project lesson (or two lessons really) that I created for my year 8 Spanish students. The writing example can be easily adapted if more structures are to be added. The idea is to promote independent learning via research. Students have to research information about past or future events that they would like to visit if they were to have a time machine and create a poster or a set of notes. Students decide on the task and start researching relevant information using their iPads/ Chromebooks. At the same time they create a cardboard / paper time machine and produce a piece of writing as per model answer. In the end they stick their written notes / writing around the time machine (or attach it to their poster with researched information). The whole process takes about 2 lessons and is perfect for the end of the topic as you can incorporate all of the structures / vocabulary learned during the term! Note: the writing example is oriented on the working knowledge of conditional tense and related popular expressions. Please let me know if you have any other ideas on how this project can be implemented.If you still have some time left you can enjoy few games I have inserted to simply have fun during the (possibly) last lesson of the year.

Two lessons on Spanish numbers from 13 to 31 and a series of activities introducing the Maya culture and Mayan numerals. It includes a power point presentation, a worksheet with extensions for the medium/high ability and a simplified version for the low ability, plus three support sheets. Special attention has been put on improving cultural awareness of the Spanish speaking world, in line with the new GCSE specification. Learning Objectives: 1. Learn numbers in Spanish from 13 to 31. 2. Learn about the Maya Culture Success Criteria: * By the end of this lesson all students will be able to remember Spanish numbers from 13 to 20. * By the end of this lesson most students will be able to remember Spanish numbers from 21 to 30. * By the end of this lesson some students will have learnt some facts about the Maya civilisation. List of activities: 1. Mistake recognition task in which students have to find spelling, agreement and/or grammar mistakes on a set of five sentences. The slide includes a timer, some extra vocabulary for support and its is differentiated by outcome (ALL must complete 1-3, MOST will complete 1-4 and SOME will complete 1-5 in the time given: between 5'-10'). This task is to be peer-assessed: grade and target. 2. Presentation of numbers from 13 to 30. Teacher to elicit three patterns (i.e. "Dieci" + number 1-9). 3. Listening task. Teacher to read/spell the names of five individuals and to state their ages. Revision of the Spanish alphabet. Teacher to elicit the pattern for numbers from 31-39 ("Treinta y" + number 1-9).

This task is to be completed in pairs. Praise points to be awarded to the couple that finishes first. 8. Fill-in the gaps exercise, recycling all vocabulary from tasks 5-7.

Presentation on Mayan numerals. Students are provided with a section of a Maya Codex and have to find as many numbers as they can spot. 10. AfL Exercise: Students to reflect on their own learning.
