Past holidays - Spanish reading - multiple activity sheets

Past holidays - Spanish reading - multiple activity sheets

This resource is made up of six sheets. It takes one text and uses it in seven different ways (six reading and one suggested listening). This is the perfect set of sheets for differentiation as either you, or your pupils, can identify what skills they need to work on while everyone is focusing on the same text. The content is suitable for those needing to revise the preterite tense in Spanish. It is aimed at higher ability KS3 (lower secondary), GCSE/National 5 or basic revision for Higher students.

New AQA Spec: Spanish General Vocab. First exams in 2018.This resource pack is a complete guide to the General Vocab contained in the minimum core AQA specification. It is essential that pupils have a great understanding of vocabulary that will appear within all four skills. It is also essential that the vocabulary is embedded in an engaging and meaningful way. All sub-topics within the General Vocab list are covered either by word searches, crosswords, match up activities, missing letters, word clouds, word mazes, scrambled letter puzzles or gap-fills and two versions of a General Vocab book are provided. There are at least two vocab puzzles for each sub-topic. The General Vocab books consist of a Spanish only version with room to fill in the English and the second containing both the Spanish and the English.The resources can be used as vocab tests, revision, pre-vocab testing, classwork, homework and cover work. There are different versions provided to allow for differentiation or for retesting when consolidating. I have also provided the .txt files for each sub-topic so you can easily produce further resources during the GCSE course. I have added further vocabulary for days of the week, months, colours and shapes. The solutions to all of the crossword puzzles are provided.

Holidays 'cheat' card game - speaking practice

Holidays 'cheat' card game - speaking practice

In groups of 2-4, pupils divide cards equally between them in piles face down in front of them. Each pupil takes turns to take the top card from their pile & reads the sentence out loud, then puts it face down in the middle. If they get a card that just says '¡Estás haciendo trampa!', they have to make up a sentence of their own on the same topic. If their opponents can tell they're making up the sentence on the spot, they can accuse the pupil of cheating - if they are, the pupil has to pick up all the cards from the middle. If not, the person who accused them picks up the cards.
