A 32 page powerpoint presentation which explains each part of the new AQA GCSE (9-1) Spanish writing paper (photo card, 40 word question, translations, 90 word question) Printable worksheets also included. For each question, the AQA mark scheme is given and top tips for getting high marks are given. Opportunities for students to practise / improve work and write their own are given throughout. Bingo game included and a translation challenge. Recap of common verbs, time markers and nice structures to include in the 90 word answer. Enough work for at least a few lessons. Hope it can be useful.
AQA GCSE Spanish Vocabulary practice (F tier)
Top 20 words from the AQA specification (foundation tier) for each ‘mini-theme’ with two printable activities for the students and an answer sheet for the teacher.
I use these mainly with KS4, in the following ways:
at the start and end of each ‘mini topic’ to show progress
at the start and end of a particular lesson focusing on these words
Year 11 revision in the last few months of teaching
Starters throughout the year (good retrieval practice)
used for vocabulary tests
They can be used for higher students also, as they need to know the foundation and higher vocabulary
Included (all Microsoft Word)
Match up vocabulary (Spanish & English)*
Teacher answers for the match up exercises
Write the English for the Spanish words (same words as first document)*
Each printable document is printed twice on an A4 word document, ready to be printed
A worksheet which I use in the first lesson with Year 11. Especially good for new classes, although I use with classes that I have already taught too.
Students fill in :
reflection on their progress in Spanish in year 10
which skills they find the most difficult
activities which they have enjoyed in Spanish
three personal targets for the year
anything the teacher can do to help them to progress
Can very easily be adapted for other languages too
GCSE Spanish NEW GCSE AQA (9-1) Student handout with a breakdown of each task in the speaking exam. Marks are included and some key points of advice for how to get the best marks.
Two word files included (Foundation tier and higher tier) (one page each)
Good for introducing the speaking exam, or as a reminder before speaking exams. I usually print out one per student and they glue them in the front of their books.
A 36 page Powerpoint resource, outlining each part of the AQA GCSE Spanish writing exam. Examples are given including the markschemes, advice on how to get the best marks, a review of verb tenses, writing checklists and a writing challenge. A planning sheet is given for the 150 mark question and filled in with possible ideas for one of the questions. Extra practice questions are given for the 90 and 150 word question.
Enough for at least 4 / 5 lessons. I hope it can be useful :)
Any feedback would be great, thanks
