Spanish. Vocab test GCSE. Y10

Spanish. Vocab test GCSE. Y10

77 slides with vocab testing covering the AQA book higher. A page with a time table of exams, which covers the first 6 units of the book, is included. It is planned for one test per week, mixing pure vocab with grammar tests. Every slide has 10 words that the students need to translate into Spanish and another 10 for English to Spanish. You will not have to prepare more tests again. excelent value per money. IMPORTANT: Even though you can always print the slides and give them to the students for revision, the resource needs that the students have the AQA higher for the new GCSE. Otherwise they cannot revise the vocab.

AVOCADOS Display

AVOCADOS Display

A display based on the AVOCADOS mnemonic. It is bright, clear, and constantly referred to by my pupils during lessons, whether that be during reading, listening, speaking or writing. I absolutely love this display, as do my pupils. There are some very minor errors - English/Spanish swapped round for instance, but they are easily rectifiable. I will not be updating the PowerPoint as it was time-consuming enough to make it in the first place. Please do let me know if you convert the template into other languages - I’d love to see! Enjoy!

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!

Spanish Grammar / Vocabulary Games KS3/KS4/GCSE - Foundation and Higher

Spanish Grammar / Vocabulary Games KS3/KS4/GCSE - Foundation and Higher

This is a collection of grammar games that I decided to share. I would use them for pretty much all age groups, both KS3 and KS4, GCSE both tiers. They can be easily amended to suit the grammar topics that you wish to reinforce / revise / introduce. The templates can also be easily reused for French. See enclosed: Snakes and ladders slide (you can amend the squares and it is short enough to serve as a 5-10 minutes activity; Tarsia slide and template - an activity to use to revise topic / key vocabulary. Students can either create their own or just cut the one you prepare for them. They need to then match the words / expressions in English with their Spanish equivalents. The dice game to revise verbs conjugations (differentiated). I included a slide with rules of the game, a template to create your own and an origami instructions to make it more hands on. Photo card scrabble (related to AQA GCSE speaking / writing tasks). I originally thought of this as a game prior to completing an exam task for KS4 students. The pack includes a slide and a scrabble board if you wish to organise an extended activity. Students need to come up with words related to the image, the words should contain 3 or more letters and they should be in Spanish! Dice conjugation (differentiated) - I would mostly suggest it for KS4 students as it is easier to differentiate. Students have a board with verbs and they need to roll dices to ascertain the personal pronoun that they apply to the infinitive on the board. My students totally loved it! One dice, one pen (un dado, un boli) - (differentiated, AQA Reading Section C / Writing Part 3 Higher / Foundation) - Students roll dice in turns to translate the sentence correctly! If the partner throws 3 he takes over a pen. The winner is the one who collected the most points. I used it with KS4 to facilitate the exam translation tasks. I also included a set of slides that I used to emphasize certain grammar points. Let me know how it goes!

AQA GCSE Spanish - Reading Section A (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 A Foundation task (answers in English). 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 a text about Aste Nagusia from the official governmental website so the text is just mildly redacted to suit the level of the readers. See the link embedded in the image in the first slide. The students read the text aloud (Oracy!) in turns as a class and then again in groups. Then they use their knowledge, dictionary / Apps to locate the meaning of unknown keywords and look at the pictures for these keywords. Then they play team challenge game to find the meaning of the Spanish verbs that appear in the text and check their answers. Next is the reading of the unrelated literary text in English in groups to exemplify that the meaning of the words in read (with jumbled letters) does not actually stop them from understanding the text. Consequently they revise the strategies for approaching Part A tasks, play a quick translation game and complete the tasks (differentiated). Please let me know if there are any problems / ideas!
