Flashcards - OCR GCSE Spanish: Vocabulary List - Entertainment

Flashcards - OCR GCSE Spanish: Vocabulary List - Entertainment

I have put every word in the vocabulary list that OCR publishes onto flashcards. This pack is just on the topic of Entertainment, but I have published all the other topics here on TES. If you are familiar with these words then the exam will be incredibly easy, since these are the only words that they will use in the exam. In this bundle, I have printed a pack with pictures, a pack in which you fold down the middle and a pack which you print double sided. The different packs are all exactly the same words, just choose the one which will help the words stick in your mind.

Free time activities - Spanish - AQA GCSE- Project (Motivational triggers) - 1-2 lessons

Free time activities - Spanish - AQA GCSE- Project (Motivational triggers) - 1-2 lessons

This is a research project lesson (or two lessons really) that I created for my year 9 Spanish students. It can also be used for older students as the model answer has a list of grammar / some more can be added. The idea is to promote independent learning via research. There are two choices: a bilingual movie poster (I wanted them to practise translating authentic information) about a movie of their choice or an interview with a famous actor/musician. 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). Those who chose the second option have to prepare a script in Spanish and if there is enough time, 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!

Revision notes: El ciberespacio

Following the success with the first instalment, this is the second instalment of a series of revision notes for the preparation of the new A Levels (AQA). The notes are a compilation of ideas from subtopics touched upon in class, with plenty of ideas sourced from the students themselves.
