Creative writing - Spanish upper KS3- KS4

Creative writing - Spanish upper KS3- KS4

Fun lesson plan where students get in small groups to create a piece of creative writing using some prompt cards (a set of random images, not included here) which they pick from an envelop. All teams have to follow a number of steps listed in this presentation in order to make sure they include certain grammatical requirements in each paragraph and they pass their story around to the other groups who then are asked to mark the previous paragraph and add up more details to the story using a pen of a different colour. I also gave each team paper in a specific colour to write or you could ask each team to write the team name on the sheet if you choose to use white paper for all. I have done this lesson with a top set Year 8 and it worked really well. They had a lot of fun and it helped them with develop their writing and team work skills. Really easy to adapt to other year groups and abilities by changing grammar required and giving a different set of cards

Spanish AS: Carrousel activities for Spanish festivals, gender's equality and heritage.

Spanish AS: Carrousel activities for Spanish festivals, gender's equality and heritage.

This resource are 3 carrousel activities that you can use in class or for homework. We used them to research some aspects of some of the topics in Year 1. For example, for the gender's equality one, I divided the class into 5 groups and every group had to use the internet to research their topic. I gave them 2 lessons and then in the third one they had to share with the class what they had learnt and teach the others. For the festivals one I also got them to work in groups and then share the ideas. Finally, for the heritage one (which includes famous painters, architects and musicians) they had to reaseach for every lesson 2 people and make some notes. I used this resource as independent learning and they had to do it as part of the homework I gave them. By the end of the unit, they had researched them all and they were able to broaden their knowledge of the culture. I put together teacher versions for 2 of these 3 aspects (festivals and gender's equality) since they were class activities and I wanted to give them extra information.
