Writing: TV and cinema (opinions) - Spanish - AQA KS3/KS4 GCSE (Speaking / Writing)

Writing: TV and cinema (opinions) - Spanish - AQA KS3/KS4 GCSE (Speaking / Writing)

This is a lesson on TV shows for an early GCSE Spanish class which can be used with a higher year 8 students. The lesson starter is a differentiated reading / writing / grammar task based on the review of a famous cartoon - Secret Life of Pets. Students read the overview of the cartoon and complete the tasks. Then they check the answers followed by phonics practice (resiting tongue twister!). Then I included a mini-test to recap / check whether students remember how to conjugate ‘tener’ in present tense. Consequently they play the Speaking Cube - 6 sides of the cube are completed with the topic questions for the half-term. Students roll a cube (you can either ask them to glue them together or you can make them yourself). I figured 6 cubes per year for each year group is an easy enough task to continue repeating the questions of all half-terms for the whole school year. The template is in the end of the lesson in case you need to change the questions (colours correspond to the difficulty of the question (core- blue, extension is green, violet is killer and pink is super killer). Then they get to revise verb 1 + verb 2 structure and complete a writing task. Before writing I tried to give them some ideas by showing them the Spanish trailer of the cartoon mentioned in the starter activity (they loved it!). The trailer is from Youtube. Finally they self/peer -assess their work by way of analising the success criteria and play a vocabulary game as a reward. The younger students might be allowed to use a dictionary or to think of any word. In any case, feel free to change the rules! Please let me know if there are any problems / ideas! Enjoy!

Role-play: opinions on TV / movies  - Spanish - AQA KS3/KS4 GCSE (Role-play)

Role-play: opinions on TV / movies - Spanish - AQA KS3/KS4 GCSE (Role-play)

This is a lesson on TV shows for an early GCSE Spanish class which can be used with a higher year 8 students. The lesson starter is a recap on some simple concepts (articles / gender / adjectival agreement/ spelling) to wake the students up followed by phonics practice (resiting tongue twister!). Then I included a mini-test to recap / check whether students remember topic-related vocabulary. Then they get to revise topic words via online quizlet activity. Students are to choose what quizlet task they want to do based on their level therefore this engaging task is differentiated. Then I have included a game - Roll-A-Word - Students roll a dice to complete different tasks related to the new and / or familiar words (both learning and revising). They count the value of the completed dices to make the task more competitive. Then they revise question words and how to form different types of questions in Spanish. They then jot their thoughts on a 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 need 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 by way of analising the success criteria (you might want to show it prior to the task for the novices). Please let me know if there are any problems / ideas! Enjoy!

Opinions on TV programmes - Spanish- AQA GCSE Listening (Sec. A- multiple choice / 1 detail asnwer)

This is a lesson on TV shows for an early GCSE Spanish class which can be used with a higher year 8 students. The lesson includes a translation starter (mini-Reading Section C) to wake the students up followed by phonics practice (resiting tongue twister!). Then I included few mini-tests to recap / check understanding of basic grammar (articles, indirect object pronouns and adjectival agreement). Then they get to know new words via online quizlet activity. Students are to choose what quizlet task they want to do based on their level therefore this engaging task is differentiated. Then I have included a quick match-up activity to check whether they remember the words they have just learned. I then introduce a Listening activity related to the opinions on TV watching preferences. It has two parts - multiple choice and one detail answer to account for two types of tasks in the Listening exam spec. Students complete a series of tasks to enhance their understanding - translate the keywords into Spanish to make the Listening easier, discuss unknown words in a group and use applications / dictionaries to find out the meaning of the unknown words. Finally they analise the way they should answer the questions , complete the task and self-assess their work. I have included the handout with the task to ease the pain. Please note that there is no listening file - see the end of the presentation for teacher’s handout and for the students one. Enjoy!

TV shows / TV program - Spanish- AQA GCSE Reading (Sec. A- T/F) differentiated

This is a lesson on TV shows for an early GCSE Spanish class which can be used with a higher year 8 students. The lesson includes a scrabble starter to wake the students up followed by phonics practice (resiting tongue twister!). Then I included few slides explaining how to use VES application to check the meaning of conjugated verbs and asked them to try to find few on their own to check understanding and to encourage them to be independent. Then they practice phonics when pronouncing new words (see new vocabulary attached - quizlet) followed by the quizlet activity. Students are to choose what quizlet task they want to do based on their level therefore this engaging task is differentiated. Then I have included a set of slides to introduce a reading section A exam task text - TV program (please note that this is a task taken from BBC Bitesize website and I bear no right on it therefore) . There is also a differentiated Rally Coach activity to consolidate the knowledge of the new vocabulary after they looked at the task whereby they try to translate the sentences in relation to opinions on TV programs. Consequently they have a look at the TV program text again and complete a series of tasks to enhance their understanding - underline cognates, discuss unknown words in a group and learn how to use Spanish Dict application (an explanatory slide given). Finally they analise the way they should answer the questions (True / False) and complete the Reading task and self-assess their work. I have included the handout with the reading task to ease the pain. Enjoy!
