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 - 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!

AQA GCSE (KS4) / KS3 VCOP - Spanish Literacy Mat

AQA GCSE (KS4) / KS3 VCOP - Spanish Literacy Mat

This a VCOP / Literacy Mat that I have prepared for my KS3 and KS4 classes. I prepared it to reflect AQA examination criteria however I believe Spanish language does not change in-between different examination organisations so can be used for different ability students studying for different types of exams. It covers 39 different grammar structures including main verb tenses and popular structures that I recommend my students use for their writing, speaking and reading practice (and learn to identify when listening). It is partially differentiated (see groups highlighted in 3 colours - blue for Core, green for Extension, red for Killer). Parts of the mat with green background represent the most popular verb tenses and verbal structures. I have included the most useful (in my point of view) opinions, adverbs, exclamations, connectives, linking expressions, quantifiers, time expressions, question words, V1 + V2 structures, subjunctive and conditional phrases, gerunds and few more expressions that worth few shiny points if used during the exam. I have considered it would be useful to include the endings and explanation on how to follow adjectival agreement rules, use correct articles and pronouns. In relation to verb tenses, providing there is not as much space as it seems to be, I have included the verb tables for present simple (regular and irregular + self-reflexive), imperative, immediate (near) future, ‘will’ future, regular and irregular conditional, past simple, imperfect and past perfect (for those who are truly passionate about grammar. If you wish to add something just amend / move few boxes and you will be done. If printing, I would recommend to do so on A3 to ensure that all of the instructions are clearly visible. Note: to remove ‘Preview’ just select it and delete - it is just one text box. Let me know how it goes and 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!
