AQA GCSE Spanish - SMSC/Cultural- Las Hogueras de San Juan Listening A + writing FQ1/ HQ4

AQA GCSE Spanish - SMSC/Cultural- Las Hogueras de San Juan Listening A + writing FQ1/ HQ4

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 is based on the review of the cartoon called ‘The Book of Life’ (El Libro de la Vida). Students read the review and complete various tasks according to their ability. Then they check their answers, review the lesson objectives and have fun resiting a tongue twister (I personally believe phonics is the way forward for the students of all ages). Students will then learn new / revise already known vocabulary on the topic of Las Hogueras de San Juan festival using Quizlet and Quizlet live tools. I have then included a video (see link) of Rosa from SpanishPod101 (see their channel in youtube) describing the festival. 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. Then they move on to Writing Foundation Questions 2 and 4 // Higher Tier Question 1. Students begin by translating the short text into English and coaching each other if stuck at the same time assessing each others 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. And, as a reward they play Hangman! (I have posted this slide for free within my resources - search for ‘El ahorcado’). Please let me know if there are any problems / ideas!

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 Spanish - Reading Section B (Foundation) answer strategy / Aste Nagusia

AQA GCSE Spanish - Reading Section B (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 B Foundation task (questions and answers in Spanish) with elements of Part A to explain the main concepts. 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 the texts about Aste Nagusia. The students read the texts aloud (Oracy!) in turns as a class and then play an ‘air writing’ game which basically means they are trying to locate the words that the teacher asks them to find. Next they do a similar task, trying to answer in Spanish in which line is the word the teacher asked them to locate. Next they annotate keywords in groups trying to translate as many unknown words as possible (in a group - coaching each other). They then play a quick tenses game to revise how to identify present, past, immediate future and conditional verbs and how to correctly translate them into English. Consequently they revise the strategies for approaching Reading Part A/B tasks and play a quick translation game. I then thought it would be useful if they quickly revise the Spanish question words by playing an online game (from the Language Gym website - free and useful!) and complete the Reading Part B task (differentiated). Please let me know if there are any problems / ideas!

AQA GCSE Spanish - Reading Section A  (Foundation) answer strategy / Aste Nagusia

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!

Then Students together with the teacher discuss the strategies and look at the task, success criteria and marking scheme and revise question words and how to form different types of questions in Spanish. They check their knowledge of the latter by way of completing a quick test and check their answers / discuss mistakes. They then jot their thoughts on a similar Role Play task in pairs (using grammar help - note: we use VCOP mat so if you have one you will need to change the numbers of the grammar points, if not you nees to delete few bits, the examples of structures are provided anyway) and complete in in writing individually . Then their ‘Time Pair Share’ the Role Play and self/peer -assess their work. Please let me know if there are any problems / ideas!

AQA A Level Spanish Topic Summaries and Ideas - Years 1&2

These powerpoints were made by me during my A Level Spanish studies; they summarise key facts, figures and discussion points relating to each of the topics and sub-themes which will help when it comes to studying and revising for the speaking exam, as well as vocabulary for the written exams. They include all of the year one and year two topics, as well as useful vocab that’s either listed or used within each slide. It’s set out in an easy-to-use order to avoid confusion and has extra information (e.g. examples of events in the Spanish-speaking world which are relevant to each sub-theme and can be very impressive in the exam) and is handy for finding what you’re looking for.

AQA A-Level Spanish. Revision for Speaking exam

AQA A-Level Spanish. Revision for Speaking exam

This is a very simple and structured way to support students revising for their AQA A-level speaking exam. This resource was inspired by a GCSE French resource I saw on Twitter. The original layout was 20 minutes a day for 40 days. Mine is, due to my timing, 20 minutes a day of Spanish for 20 days. How yo use: When scanning the QR Code printed on the handout, your students will be able to find all the tasks, day by day. For some of revision tasks, students have to email the teacher some sort of evidence to show that they have done and completed the daily task. Buena suerte!
