Spanish GCSE School Imperfect ¿cómo era tu escuela primaria? Reading & Translation

A standalone lesson on the topic of “primary school” using the imperfect tense. Some knowledge of the imperfect tense is required prior to this lesson.

The starter is matching up key imperfect verbs from the board to their English equivalents on the handout. Pupils could then use there verbs to write sentences about their primary school. There is then a selection of different and interesting adjectives that pupils can use to talk about their schools. There is a reading comprehension & a gap-fill. The final activity is translation into Spanish using the imperfect tense and recycling all the vocabulary from this lesson.

The resources are a model for pupils to then produce their own written/oral answer to: ¿Cómo era tu escuela primaria?
