AQA GCSE Spanish - Reading Section A  (Foundation) answer strategy / Aste Nagusia

AQA GCSE Spanish - Reading Section A (Foundation) answer strategy / Aste Nagusia

This is a template of a set of activities that I prepared for my higher year 8 Spanish students and early KS4 in relation to answering a Reading Section A Foundation task (answers in English). Please note that this is a template and can be reused for different topics. This one is related to the topic of festivals and celebrations. It is based on a text about Aste Nagusia from the official governmental website so the text is just mildly redacted to suit the level of the readers. See the link embedded in the image in the first slide. The students read the text aloud (Oracy!) in turns as a class and then again in groups. Then they use their knowledge, dictionary / Apps to locate the meaning of unknown keywords and look at the pictures for these keywords. Then they play team challenge game to find the meaning of the Spanish verbs that appear in the text and check their answers. Next is the reading of the unrelated literary text in English in groups to exemplify that the meaning of the words in read (with jumbled letters) does not actually stop them from understanding the text. Consequently they revise the strategies for approaching Part A tasks, play a quick translation game and complete the tasks (differentiated). Please let me know if there are any problems / ideas!

KS3/text level Spanish Reading arrow-whole lesson introduction to reading strategies

This tried and tested approach to reading provides a visual strategy which can be applied to a wide variety of texts in a second language or in English, improving not only language skills, but also general literacy. Particularly useful when exploiting authentic materials, it can equally be applied to more traditional texts and, once embedded, enables students of all ages to work successfully with more complex source materials than would otherwise have been the case. This resource models the strategy with a simple Spanish text, however it can be applied to texts of a wide range of difficulty. It includes a ten slide teaching presentation to introduce the strategy, comprehensive teaching notes accompanied by thumbnails of all the materials, plus student sheets and the strategy arrow, which can be laminated for repeated use. The resource is also available modelled with a French text and a German text.
