50 x Copyright-free colouring sheets on the theme of 'Spanish'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as colouring sheets. Includes suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

KS3 Spanish Cover Lesson Design your own City

KS3 Spanish Cover Lesson Design your own City

Lesson Covers: How to describe your city (imaginary!) - what's in it and what it has e.g. my city has a king, watchtowers, walls and a dragon. This works best as a cover lesson. It is easy for non-specialists to follow but supports and challenges KS3 students of Spanish well. Could also be adapted for use in lessons by specialists in order to revise 'what's in one's city / town'. It is helpful, but not necessary, if the students have some knowledge of connectives, adjectives and SER / TENER in Spanish. Important key words are provided in each activity of lesson. Dictionaries needed. Lesson involves: Differentiated objectives and starter (quick translation) activity. Activity 1: Teams work to look up words (in Spanish) used to describe what's in a city e.g. murallas, atalayas etc. Next slide gives answers to students so they can write down whatever they were unable to find. Activity 2: Differentiated translation task using key vocabulary they have just looked up in teams. Key words provided as well as higher challenge. Next slide contains answers for peer / self-assessment. Main and final activity: students design and label their own city using key words / sentences they have been working on throughout lesson. Again, this is differentiated by task with key works provided on ppt. Bubble snake review to finish.

Los colores - Cross Curricular with Art

Los colores - Cross Curricular with Art

This class is for learning colours in context of Spanish artists. Although it doesn't have instructions the activity when it has all the paintings on one page they have to go around the room and ask each other (use 2 kids as language detectives to make sure they are on task and to do feedback). The loop I got them to watch it twice and fill in the colours on the handout. PLEASE LEAVE ME FEEDBACK AND RATE.

Picasso and colours

Picasso and colours

Introducing colours as vocab and recapping vocab about yourself (name, age etc) through learning about Picasso. I displayed each sentence from the hidden slides around the room and students moved around with their little questions sheet to try and find the answers. I used this with Year 7 but it could be used/adapted for other years. I showed a video which I'll upload shortly. (LY)
