Worksheets and a few Powerpoint presentations for Modern Languages. Mainly Spanish at the moment and mainly Key Stages 3-4, but one or two Key Stage 5 too. I hope my resources are useful to you. I spend quite a lot of time making them and would like to save other busy teachers time preparing resources - so you can get on with teaching.

KS4 Spanish: Las relaciones familiares (¿Te llevas bien con...?)

KS4 Spanish: Las relaciones familiares (¿Te llevas bien con...?)

(0)
FAMILY RELATIONSHIPs. You could base a whole lesson around these resources (or set them for homework/revision). Contains: A slide with a ‘mosaic writing’ activity (credit to Gianfranco Conti for this idea): i.e. Pupils are given a short paragraph in English about family relationships and have to construct a Spanish translation from the words provided in the grid. A worksheet with various tasks designed to build up/practise key vocabulary to do with this topic. The idea is that the gap-fill task can be completed purely by using words drawn from the first text - in other words, pupils are identifying and recycling the relevant language. Likewise the Translation sentences at the bottom can be done using vocabulary from elsewhere on the worksheet. Ideas for further exploiting the worksheet You can exploit the texts on the worksheet in other ways. E.g. spot the adjectives. Re-write one of the texts changing the underlined parts (teacher could project the texts onto board with some phrases underlined) to say something else, verbally or in writing e.g. alternative adjectives, different verbs, different family member words. Plenary with mini-whiteboard sentences to translate based purely on words and phrases from the text (or incorporating prior knowledge too for stronger classes). Reading texts aloud for pronunciation practice. Translate the first text. etc etc.

AQA A-Level Spanish (Listening): Immigration from Mexico to US

(0)
This is an audiovisual activity for the Immigration sub-topic (AQA A-Level Spanish). It contains a series of questions or gap-fill sentences related to a 2017 Youtube video about immigration from Mexico to the U.S. (I slowed the video down to 0.75 speed for the first listen, then played it at normal speed. This seemed to work well.) Please check the accompanying video (not produced by me) is still available before downloading the worksheet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiNHOEm_kHg

KS5 Spanish: Useful Phrases for Speaking Exam (and essays)

KS5 Spanish: Useful Phrases for Speaking Exam (and essays)

(1)
There are a few 'useful essay phrases' resources out there online but I put together this one because: 1) I was mainly looking for useful phrases pupils could make use of in the (new AQA) speaking exam when talking about the various topics 2) Existing resources seemed more geared towards structuring an essay 3) ...and many contained many pages of often quite convoluted essay phrases students were fairly unlikely to remember or find an opportunity to use. Yes, virtually all of these phrases would be perfectly suitable in written work too but I have tried to compile a relatively brief (just over 2.5 pages) list of what seem to me the most handy expressions that could be plausibly used when speaking. I have gathered the ones which take the subjunctive in a separate box at the beginning of the document. Easily editable. And there is a box at the end for students to add further phrases.
KS4 Spanish: Future Plans

KS4 Spanish: Future Plans

(0)
This is a triple worksheet (three pages) about future plans (not future jobs as such but more general: I'm going to take a gap year, go to university, learn to drive, etc). Sheet 1 is a vocabulary sheet for this topic. Sheet 2 has some simply match-up and gap-fill tasks to introduce key vocabulary. Sheet 3 has four sample paragraphs about people's future plans. There are questions testing comprehension but also getting pupils to highlight useful language such as time phrases, connectives, etc. The idea is to get them to think about how they can write sophisticated paragraphs about this topic.

This worksheet has two sides: one with a 150-word environment question, with a model answer to highlight, dissect and analyse (to give students ideas for their own writing) second side gives a 90-word environment question, with an inadequate sample answer for them to analyse, annotate and improve in pairs Students found this useful to prepare to write their own answer to an GCSE question on the environment. Took up a good chunk of the lesson.
