Special attention has been put on improving cultural awareness of the Spanish speaking world, in line with the new GCSE specification. Learning Objectives: 1. Learn numbers in Spanish from 13 to 31. 2. Learn about the Maya Culture Success Criteria: * By the end of this lesson all students will be able to remember Spanish numbers from 13 to 20. * By the end of this lesson most students will be able to remember Spanish numbers from 21 to 30. * By the end of this lesson some students will have learnt some facts about the Maya civilisation. List of activities: 1. Mistake recognition task in which students have to find spelling, agreement and/or grammar mistakes on a set of five sentences. The slide includes a timer, some extra vocabulary for support and its is differentiated by outcome (ALL must complete 1-3, MOST will complete 1-4 and SOME will complete 1-5 in the time given: between 5'-10'). This task is to be peer-assessed: grade and target. 2. Presentation of numbers from 13 to 30. Teacher to elicit three patterns (i.e. "Dieci" + number 1-9). 3. Listening task.
