The new national curriculum emphasizes the need to teach the cultures of the Spanish-speaking countries.
In order to meet this requirement as well as to motivate pupils into the learning of these amazing cultures, we ask our pupils at KS3 to pick un país de habla española (or a city/comunidad if there are more pupils than countries in a class) and research about it. However we set criteria in order to ensure quality. We also show previous years’ work as WAGOLLs so pupils know what they actually can do. We like it to be done in the exercise books and to be handwritten to make sure this will be their work.
Here you will find two documents, the hand-out we give to pupils and the one we keep with the pupils’ names to know which pupil will be doing which country.
