GCSE Spanish 2016 - Module 2 Revision booklet

GCSE Spanish 2016 - Module 2 Revision booklet

This is a booklet I have made for my students to revise the second Module of the book, called 'Mi vida en el insti'. You will find about 10 different exercises that include a variety of reading, translation and writing, all made by myself (I am a native Spanish speaker) following the guidelines and the specification given by Edexcel. In this booklet, students will revise the following topics:*Verbs of opinion (me gusta / no me gusta / odio, ...)*The comparatives*The near future*Vocab from the module (school facilities, school rules, extracurricular activities, etc). Hope it helps!

Spanish school mi instituto reading comprehension (description, facilities, subjects, opinions)

Spanish school mi instituto reading comprehension (description, facilities, subjects, opinions)

This is a reading comprehension to use with pupils as a plenary reading task at the end of a unit on school. Some key vocabulary is given in a match-up activity, then there is the text and two reading comprehension questions (one a comprehension in Spanish and two a true/false activity). This will revise all school vocabulary and introduce some new words. The comprehension is also good for revising interrogative words.

My studies - Spanish - AQA GCSE new spec Part 3 HT - Conversation - Speaking frame + Model answer

My studies - Spanish - AQA GCSE new spec Part 3 HT - Conversation - Speaking frame + Model answer

This is the speaking framework and the model answer that I wrote for the early GCSE classes. The model answer and the framework were originally designed for them to write an essay that they might use for the speaking test or keep it in file to revise prior to the exam. I have also used it as a writing model answer. There are three documents in there because I was trying to check what works better and in the end decided that the framework is quite sufficient for them to realise what are they expected to write / say.I have left references to the VCOP mat in case someone wants to put their numbers in, alternatively, just delete them as I left the names of the structures.

School Rules - Spanish - AQA new spec -Exam practice (Reading, Section C)

School Rules - Spanish - AQA new spec -Exam practice (Reading, Section C)

This is a 2b lesson on school rules for a GCSE Spanish class that I happened to have an observation with (unexpectedly!). The lesson includes a literacy starter (students have to find and amend the mistake in the sentence), a mini-plenary on grammar in relation to the starter, a tongue twister slide to practise 'i' sound, a mini-test on present tense verbs conjugation ( I often give these ones), a mini-test on articles, a pronunciation slide and a quizlet on the words that would be used in the reading task, and a reading task itself. I am trying to teach them how to approach these tasks in the most effective way so they underline the words they know and find out the ones they do not. I wrote the text myself on the basis of the one from the specimen materials for it to have a similar structure to the one they will see in the exam. Finally they self-assess their work (and learn new words!). This lesson includes the explanation on how to use 'Spanish Dict Box' application to finds out the meaning of unknown words.

A typical school day - Spanish- AQA (new spec) GCSE Reading (Section B)

A typical school day - Spanish- AQA (new spec) GCSE Reading (Section B)

This is a lesson is about a typical school day for a GCSE Spanish class. The lesson includes a literacy (scramble style) starter, a tongue twister activity (to practise pronunciation of the 'go' sound), a pronunciation activity and a quizlet on the words that would be used in the reading task, a rally couach mini-plenary (it goes after I first show them the text so they realise they would really need to remember the words) and a reading task itself. I am trying to teach them how to approach these tasks in the most effective way so they underline the words they know and find out the ones they do not. I wrote the text myself on the basis of the one from the specimen materials for it to have a similar structure to the one they will see in the exam. I have also included a slide on how to use VES application to find and to correctly translate a verb which is not written in infinitive and a mini-plenary for them to practise using the same. You can introduce some competition in here if you wish. Finally they self-assess their work and compete to translate / provide a definition of the words in the plenary task that they have learned in previous lessons.

Studies - AQA GCSE Spanish - 4 lessons + speaking framework and model answer+ research project

This is a bundle of 4 lessons and a research project in relation to the topic of Studies in the AQA GCSE specification (originally for the early GCSE year but can also be used for revision for years 10 &11). These lessons are prepared for the tropics of opinions and reasons on the schools subjects, typical school day and school rules. The bundle is finalised with the research project which includes the structures and grammar from the whole topic, that can be changed / adapted / differentiated further to your needs. I have also included the speaking framework for the Part 3 of the Higher Tier exam that can also be used in writing practice.

Research project for KS3/KS4 Spanish - My school

Research project for KS3/KS4 Spanish - My school

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 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 school or an interview with between a student from your school and a school in Spain. 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 - Life at School/ College - COLOUR MATCH

GCSE SPANISH - Life at School/ College - 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
