AQA GCSE Spanish - Writing (Foundation) answer strategy - Questions 2 and 4 / Higher Question 1

AQA GCSE Spanish - Writing (Foundation) answer strategy - Questions 2 and 4 / Higher Question 1

This is a template that I prepared for my higher year 8 Spanish students and early KS4 in relation to answering a Writing Foundation Questions 2 and 4 // Higher Tier Question 1. The topic of this example is celebrations / festivals. Students begin by translating the short text into English and coaching each other if stuck at the same time assessing each other’s 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. Please let me know if there are any problems / ideas!

AQA GCSE Spanish -  Writing (Foundation) answer strategy - Question 1

AQA GCSE Spanish - Writing (Foundation) answer strategy - Question 1

This is a template that I prepared for my higher year 8 Spanish students and early KS4 in relation to answering a Writing Foundation Question 1 (photo card). Please note that this is a template and can be reused for different topics. This one is related to the topic of carnivals and celebrations. It starts with a Quizlet slide to revise (whilst being engaged!) some vocabulary prior to looking at the task. There are various Quizlet word lists available so you can just change the QR code and link if another list of words is needed. Then Students together with the teacher discuss the strategies and look at the success criteria and marking scheme. Then they play few verb conjugation games to revise some useful verbs that they can use to describe the photo card later on in the lesson. Consequently they jot their thoughts on a different photo card (working in pairs / groups) and play a catchphrase game to get more ideas on the topic. Then they work in pairs to prepare a response to another (but similar!) photo card. Finally they do it individually and self/peer -assess their work. Please let me know if there are any problems / ideas!

A level Spanish Speaking Revision Booklet

A level Spanish Speaking Revision Booklet

A revision booklet aimed at A level students doing the AQA spec. Primarily, it includes a list of the exam regulations as well as the structure of the exam. As this booklet focuses on the stimulus card aspect of the exam, it also has a mark scheme for that. It includes an example of a stimulus card on all 12 themes used throughout AS and A level AQA Spanish. There are three questions on each card, and subsequently, there are possible answers to each question on each card to show students how to structure their planning and best use their time. There is space for extra annotations and translations to be done as the comments are in English. As the students are required to ask their teacher 2 questions relating to the card, there are also 4 examples per card of questions students could ask. At the end of the booklet, there are tasks for the students to complete. These tasks include: plan your own response for three of the questions under ‘possible questions to ask teachers’ where students are encouraged to think outside the box. practice doing one of the cards with a peer, taking it in turns to swap roles and be the examiner. This helps them to get to grips with the mark scheme. lastly, there is an example of transcript between a student and an examiner. The students should annotate this with what the student did well, and how they could improve. By doing both of these, the students can learn something.
