Building on the ability to build longer phrases to define/describe sports, this lesson includes an extended group oral activity adapted from Rosaespanola's cheat activity. The lesson finishes with a structured sentence-building activity which students have been responding very well to.
This is part of a module on the Olympics but starts with a revision of some sports, building up to simple definitions in the TL. For Y9 lower ability - more able groups in Y7/8 would be able to access too of course.

Euro 2016 Resources Product Description.
I have planned this lesson not only to teach vocabulary and facts about football, France and Euro 2016, but also to help the students to respond creatively to their learning and hopefully share their passion for football! The PowerPoint uses matching cards, colourful pictures and animations and YouTube extracts set to music to inspire the students. It is planned to use with students from Years 6-9 (the final task is very open-ended).
Slide 2 shows a celebratory image of the 2012 winners – Spain!
Slide 3 states the objective:
Objectivo: To learn about el fútbol & Euro 2016 and to respond creatively to your learning.
Slide 4 has a YouTube link to follow to use with the attached worksheet. This uses the official UEFA promotional video (3 mins 57 secs) and the worksheet builds vocabulary, cultural and factual knowledge such as the locations of the stadiums, their capacities, cultural images and numbers of matches, volunteers, teams etc. The worksheet is differentiated with an Extra! challenge section. The answers are on the first page of the worksheet.
Slide 6 introduces key vocabulary and can be used with the matching cards. The students should work in pairs/ groups to match the vocabulary and the picture using their previous knowledge, cognates and a process of elimination.

The activity is differentiated as follows:
All: Match Up!
Most: Perfect Pronunciation Challenge!
Some: Quick Fire Questions! (Here the students quiz each other: French to English, English to French, spellings, accents…..).
Slides 7 to 18 show each word and the matching picture and colourful animations.
Slide 19 has all the pictures for a quick recap.
Then there is graded questioning:
Slides 20 to 31 have A, B, C multiple choice questions.
Slides 32 to 45 are “What’s missing?” slides.
Then slide 46 has a YouTube link to the official song and video (3 mins 49 secs) and students should note down new nouns and adjectives expressing the emotions they see and feel (if they don’t know the Spanish they can grab a dictionary later!)
The creative challenges are presented on slides 46 and 47, this is to either create an acrostic, a calligramme or a poem (there is a poem template provided). This information is also on the accompanying worksheets.
Slide 48 provides the opportunity for reflection.
I really hope you and your students enjoy these resources!
I have designed these resources to celebrate the Rio 2016 Olympics and Paralympics. They build student’s knowledge of sports vocabulary and adjectives using YouTube extracts, fun animations, matching cards, a video extract worksheet and finally a creative task to help the students express their Olympic/Paralympic passions!
Slide 2 presents the differentiated lesson objectives. Slide 3 has the Olympic motto and pictures of Olympian heroes. Slide 4 is the warmer task: name as many Olympic/Paralympic sports as possible from student’s previous knowledge and includes links to the Juntos | Campaña oficial del COI in both Spanish and English (1 min 30 secs each) to inspire the students. They may do this in teams, pairs or individually. The full list of Olympic and Paralympic events can be found on a PDF in these resources.
Slides 5 to 43 build new Olympic/Paralympic sports vocabulary:
El levantamiento de pesas
El nado sincronizado
El tiro con arco
Slide 5 invites the students to:
All: Match Up!
Most: Perfect Pronunciation Challenge!
Some: Quick Fire Questions! *Here the students quiz each other, e.g Spanish to English, English to Spanish, spellings etc. of the new vocabulary.
Slides 6 to 17 have 1 slide per expression and allow you to drill the new vocabulary. Then there is graded questioning.
Slides 19 to 30 show the images and give the students a choice of two possible sports to choose from. Then slides 31 to 43 are what’s missing? slides.
Slide 44 should be used in conjunction with the worksheet. Here the students tick the sports they see on the Paralympic trailer video (2 mins 48 secs) and includes an extension task for stronger students. The answers are on the first two pages of the worksheet PDF.
The next slide should be used with the English-Spanish adjectives matching cards.
Once matched you may like to play pelmenism/slap the card.
Then complete the second half of the worksheet: students watch the official Rio 2016 trailer and tick the adjectives which reflect the emotions of the athletes and spectators as well as other adjectives to describe what they see. There is an extension task for stronger students.
Then the students have a choice of three creative tasks: to design and decorate in Spanish an Olympic torch, an Olympic flag or to write a poem about their Olympic/Paralympic hero. The last slide is for reflection.
