GCSE Spanish - SMSC / Cultural -El Carnaval - Photo Card (AQA)

GCSE Spanish - SMSC / Cultural -El Carnaval - Photo Card (AQA)

This is the lesson that I have prepared for my higher y8/ and y9/y10 in relation to the topic of Spanish culture (Festivals & Celebrations) and is mostly related to El Carnaval. I used it as a general topic to look at the photo card task (speaking / foundation writing). The starter focus is reading - students complete differentiated tasks in relation to an authentic extract from on line newspaper. Students will then learn new / revise already known vocabulary on the topic of carnivals/ festivals using Quizlet and Quizlet live tools. Then they recap on the success criteria for Speaking Q2 / Writing Q1 - Photo card- and complete a photo card task based on a photo of a carnival celebration together. They jot their thoughts first, play a catchphrase game and then prepare their responses in pairs on the second photo card. Finally they complete a third photo card task individually and self / peer assess the same. In-between the photo cards I inserted some verb games to make the lesson more fun for the students and not to let them get bored. Let me know what you think!

AQA GCSE Spanish - SMSC/Cultural- Las Hogueras de San Juan Listening A + writing FQ1/ HQ4

AQA GCSE Spanish - SMSC/Cultural- Las Hogueras de San Juan Listening A + writing FQ1/ HQ4

This is the lesson that I have prepared for my higher y8/ and y9/y10 in relation to the topic of Spanish culture (Festivals & Celebrations). The starter is based on the review of the cartoon called ‘The Book of Life’ (El Libro de la Vida). Students read the review and complete various tasks according to their ability. Then they check their answers, review the lesson objectives and have fun resiting a tongue twister (I personally believe phonics is the way forward for the students of all ages). Students will then learn new / revise already known vocabulary on the topic of Las Hogueras de San Juan festival using Quizlet and Quizlet live tools. I have then included a video (see link) of Rosa from SpanishPod101 (see their channel in youtube) describing the festival. Even though the video is in Spanish and Rosa speaks really quickly, there are subtitles in English so that all students have a chance to listen to a native speaker and at the same time understand what the video is about (note: I personally find the Spanishpod101 videos amazing as they address quite a few cultural / grammar / pronunciation and other aspects so I would recommend letting your students know that a lot of resources are available for free. Consequently, students answer quiz questions about the video. I presented it as a Listening task. Then they move on to Writing Foundation Questions 2 and 4 // Higher Tier Question 1. Students begin by translating the short text into English and coaching each other if stuck at the same time assessing each others 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. And, as a reward they play Hangman! (I have posted this slide for free within my resources - search for ‘El ahorcado’). Please let me know if there are any problems / ideas!

GCSE Spanish - SMSC / Cultural - Las Fallas - Listening/ Photo Card/ Reading C (AQA)

GCSE Spanish - SMSC / Cultural - Las Fallas - Listening/ Photo Card/ Reading C (AQA)

This is the lesson that I have prepared for my higher y8/ and y9/y10 in relation to the topic of Spanish culture (Festivals & Celebrations). The starter focus is the Past Simple (preterite) and the Future SImple (‘will’). We use Viva books so I included help boxes as a reminder for those who do not clearly remember the endings. Students will then look at the speaking questions of the half-term, analysing them and trying to come up with a set of ideas for a response. I have then included a video (see link) of Rosa from SpanishPod101 (see their channel in youtube) describing the celebration of Las Fallas. Even though the video is in Spanish and Rosa speaks really quickly, there are subtitles in English so that all students have a chance to listen to a native speaker and at the same time understand what the video is about (note: I personally find the Spanishpod101 videos amazing as they address quite a few cultural / grammar / pronunciation and other aspects so I would recommend letting your students know that a lot of resources are available for free. Consequently, students answer quiz questions about the video. I presented it as a Listening task. They annotated the questions and complete the task using vocabulary help. Students will then learn new / revise already known vocabulary on the topic of Las Fallas festival using Quizlet and Quizlet live tools. Then they recap on the success criteria for Speaking Q2 / Writing Q1 - Photo card and complete a photo card task based on a photo from La Tomatina celebration together. They jot their thoughts first, play a catchphrase game and then prepare their responses in pairs on the second photo card. Finally they complete a third photo card task individually. Finally they read and analyse the grammar in the text about festival to complete AQA Higher Reading Section C task (translation). I included some grammar tips for them and highlighted them in the text to make it easier. Then they complete the task, check their answers, self assess themselves and play Hangman (as a reward for hard work!). Enjoy!

GCSE Spanish- 6 Starters -Cultural/SMSC (differentiated -5 levels)-Speaking, Reading, Writing skills

GCSE Spanish- 6 Starters -Cultural/SMSC (differentiated -5 levels)-Speaking, Reading, Writing skills

This a set of Starters with answers that could be used either for the lessons from the topic of festivals and celebrations or as a stand out SMSC - Cultural starter. I included answers so that children can check their answers. These are mostly for higher y8 or for KS4 lessons, differentiated (CORE, EXTENSION, KILLER, SUPERKILLER, LEGEND). All of the instructions are in Spanish. They can also serve as a template to create your own tasks - just change the text and (slightly) the questions. First Starter is on the topic of San Fermin and includes an authentic text from the ‘La Vanguardia’, an on line newspaper. The examination focus of this starter is Reading. Second Starter features similar tasks but a different text, also authentic. The third one is on the topic of La Tomatina and is essentially a Role-play task with success criteria. It therefore focuses on Speaking. The fourth one is a Photo card Starter on the topic of Aste Nagusia (or festivals in general) with help and instructions and therefore can be used as a Speaking / Writing activity. Fourth one follows the same idea but is designed for the topic of holidays. The fifth is a grammar starter for any holidays topic and its focus is the Past Simple (preterite) and the Future SImple (‘will’). We use Viva books so I included help boxes as a reminder for those who do not clearly remember the endings. The sixth starter focuses on Reading (parts B and C). Students translate and analyse the adjectives in the Wordle. Let me know what you think!
