KS3/4 Spanish - Listening & Reading Skills (Topic: Body & Health)

N.B. This lesson can easily be used in preparation for listening and reading assessment as it helps students develop both their exam skills and their capacity to consciously listen to TL. - Ideal for learners of KS3 and lower KS4 Spanish, as the lesson includes plenty of scaffolding and step-by-step exploitation of audios. - Total of 2 files in the package: a PowerPoint for the lesson which includes all slides (hidden with white backgrounds) to print for students; specifically-designed MP3 file. - The content for the reading and listening files is based on 'Body and Health'.

Mi ciudad - Activities in town, photo card worksheet and project AQA GCSE

Mi ciudad - Activities in town, photo card worksheet and project AQA GCSE

This is a brief bundle for the young GCSE Spanish class or for the revision of the older students. I included 2 versions of my observation lesson (practice of Section C reading exam task), a photo card help worksheet (can also be used for the topic writing practice) and a research project about a favourite town with the model answer that practically summarises the topic vocabulary and can also be used for the revision tasks (can be amended if needed).

Town research project for KS3/KS4 Spanish - Mi ciudad favorita

Town research project for KS3/KS4 Spanish - Mi ciudad favorita

This is a research project lesson (or two lessons really) that I created for my year 8 Spanish students. It can also be used for year 9 as the model answer has quite a list of grammar / some more can be added. The idea is to promote independent learning via research. There are two choices: a documentary about your favourite town in England (in my case it is Manchester) or an interview with a football player about his town in Spain ( I chose Madrid). Students decide on the task, the roles and start researching relevant information using their iPads (one of the students needs to summarise the information that others found). They then have to prepare a script in Spanish and to make a video using iMovie or any other video application. If there is little time I would suggest them to present it and I would film it. The whole process takes about 2 lessons and is perfect for the end of the topic as you can incorporate all of the structures / vocabulary learned during the term!

GCSE SPANISH - Free Time Activities - Sport - COLOUR MATCH

GCSE SPANISH - Free Time Activities - Sport - COLOUR MATCH

This is a colour match exercise to practise vocabulary from the AQA syllabus. Students find a pair which mean the same, in English and Spanish. They then colour them the same colour. If they run out of colours they could use stripes, spots etc. If you are short on time they could number the boxes instead of colouring them in. The second sheet is for students to fill in the words as they find them and then to use as a vocab list. This is useful for a starter, a cover lesson or a homework

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. Vocabulary:Un futbolistaEl guardametaEl réferiEl estadioLa pelotaLa copaUna banderaUn equipoUna tarjeta amarillaLa canchaUna camisetaUnos botinesThe activity is differentiated as follows:All: Match Up!Most: Perfect Pronunciation Challenge!Some: Quick Fire Questions!

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!

Spanish Teaching Resources. Olympic & Paralympic Games. Juegos olímpicos y paralímpicos

Spanish Teaching Resources. Olympic & Paralympic Games. Juegos olímpicos y paralímpicos

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 atletismoEl remoEl piragüismoLa equitación La esgrimaEl levantamiento de pesasLa luchaEl buceoEl nado sincronizadoEl tiroEl tiro con arcoLa velaSlide 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.Adjectives: trabajador/aentusiasmado/aperezoso/anervioso/aconcentrado/aseguro/arelajado/a encantado/a orgulloso/a egoístaterco/a lento/arápido/a hablador(a)habilidoso/aOnce 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.
