KS4 Spanish Halloween El Dia de los Muertos (AQA GCSE)

KS4 Spanish Halloween El Dia de los Muertos (AQA GCSE)

(1)
This is a lesson which I prepared for my KS4 Spanish groups for the end of the term. It includes one of my favourite starters - students have to analyse the overview of the cartoon - The Book of Life - and choose a task according to their level. You would then check the answers and would move on to explaining the lesson outcomes. Then they would have some fun with a tongue twister, working on their pronunciation of ‘Br’ sound (one of their favourite thing to do every lesson - easy to find and to tick SMSC, engagement, phonics and oracy points).Then I have included a mind map mini-plenary for them to revise the festivities/celebrations vocabulary. It is then followed by the new vocabulary introduction with a quizlet and quizlet live games. A short Rally coach activity is included for them to consolidate the vocabulary and to practice translating topic-related sentences. I have then arranged for a listening / reading activity using one of the youtube videos of the SpanishPod101 about Halloween. The lady speaks fast but there are Spanish and English subtitles at the bottom to assist students with understanding the video. They would answer the listening questions as they listen to /watch the video. The next task is Reading (Section B) - they need to insert the correct words in the text about the Day of the Dead followed by the AQA skill-based self-assessment. Finally, the ‘words’ snake’ plenary that students totally love - they have to work in groups remembering topi-specific vocabulary. Enjoy!
Research project (Motivational triggers) for KS3 French - Vive le sport!

Research project (Motivational triggers) for KS3 French - Vive le sport!

(0)
This is a research project lesson (or two lessons really) that I created for my year 7 French students. The writing example can be easily adapted if more structures are to be added. The idea is to promote independent learning via research. Students have to research information about a sports team and create a poster. After that they have to produce a piece of writing to express their opinion on that team. 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). 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!
Education in Nazi Germany

Education in Nazi Germany

(0)
These are two lessons (one is modified for a different group - beginning is slightly different) on the topic of Education in Nazi Germany. The lessons include such activities as settler, starter, exam question with a model answer and success criteria as well as a research task (using book / internet) together with some revision exercises such as Quiz-Quiz-Trade and Keywords revision. I also enclose a handout that I use to print for the students so they do not read the sources from the board.

Town research project for KS3/KS4 Spanish - Mi ciudad favorita

This is a research project lesson (or two lessons really) that I created for my year 8 Spanish students. It can also be used for year 9 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 favourite town in England (in my case it is Manchester) or an interview with a football player about his town in Spain ( I chose Madrid). 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!
AQA GCSE Spanish Games Conjugation Learning Grid and Cube// El Bingo (grammar/vocabulary/ revision)

AQA GCSE Spanish Games Conjugation Learning Grid and Cube// El Bingo (grammar/vocabulary/ revision)

(0)
These are few grammar games that I decided to share. I would use them for pretty much all age groups, both KS3 and KS4, GCSE both tiers. They can be easily amended to suit the grammar topics that you wish to reinforce / revise / introduce. The templates can also be easily reused for French. See enclosed: Verb conjugation Learning Grid (differentiated) - Students roll two dices to identify the tense and the pronoun they need to use. To make the task more complicated for more advanced students I ask them to create a sentence using the verb they got with particular amount of words to further challenge higher tier students. I would highly recommend it for the KS4 students. El Bingo (good to promote Vocabulary / Listening / Phonics). Teacher gives studnets 15 words and asks them to write 5 of them down. Teacher then either says the translation of the words on the board (KS3) or defines them in Spanish / English (y9/10/11). If students recognise one of their words they cross it out, first one who crosses 5 wins! Conjugation Cube. Students create a set of two dices that they will roll together. There are two versions of them to provide for two levels of differentiation. Students play in turns to conjugate the verbs! I included an origami version of the cube in case you wish to ask them to make the cube and to write the questions on their own (I took the scheme from the Google images so I do not claim any rights on that one.) Let me know how it goes!

El Domingo de Pascua (SMSC - Cultural) Spanish (AQA) KS3/ KS4 lesson

(0)
This is an Easter lesson that I created for my higher KS3/KS4 Spanish students. The idea is to have some fun and to do some writing as well! The lesson starts with a friendly - easy starter, lesson plan and pronunciation slide to learn how to pronounce some Easter related words. Then we move on to a quizlet task to learn / revise some Easter vocabulary and Rally Coach activity to check whether we remember the words (translation practice). I have then included a conjugation activity with some verbs (you need some dices!) followed by a competitive translation activity (make sure you have similar ability students working together). The students then use a trap door structure (table) to speak about their Easter day and then I tell them about my Easter day in a similar manner as suggested by previous activity. I first use pictures only and then show them the model answer and the grammar success criteria. After they write down their responses we move on to playing quizlet live and Hangman. Enjoy!
Reichstag Fire

Reichstag Fire

(0)
This lesson is about the Reichstag Fire and Enabling Act. You have probably noticed that I like including activities whereby students are researching the topic themselves and revise some of the past themes. This lesson includes a settler, WJEC- style exam question, Peer-Assessment, Ipad Research slide with instructions, a source worksheet (available for free as well because I think I could have used someone's worksheet to create this one), a plenary to revise some dates / events (I used BBC bitesize to prepare this one) a food for thought slide. As I have said above, I am also including the worksheet in my free resources.

Nazi Racial Policy / Antisemitism

(0)
This lesson introduces the Nazi Racial policy and touches upon Antisemitism. It includes settler, starter, an example of how an exercise book is supposed to look like (a picture taken from the A* student's book), exam question with a model answer and success criteria, a slide showing how to justify the grade when self-assessing your answer (with a self-assessment slide), Learning outcomes, a slide introducing discussion of the racial policy in the propaganda posters (with some keywords), information research task (I enclosed the information sheet taken from the BBC Bitesize website), Oracy leader task based on the Hitler's quote and a recap activity on the asking students to put the events of the Hitler's rise to power in chronological order.

Research project (Motivational triggers) for KS3/KS4 French AQA - Christmas project

(0)
This is a research project lesson (or two lessons really) that I created for my KS3/lower KS4 French students. The idea is to promote independent learning via research. Students have to research information about French Christmas, compare the traditions with the ones in Britain and to create a presentation / poster. 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). There is also a designer and an analyst (usually the most attaining student in the group. Enjoy!

2. The Rise of the Nazi Party - Munich Putsch

(0)
Two lessons for GCSE History about the Rise of the Nazi Party, featuring some major facts from the early DAP, Munich Putsch, an exam question, a worksheet with Peer Assessment, a Plenary (SMSC) and Food for Thought slide with few useful links and a quote by Hermann Goering. There are two lesson simply because I was slightly changing them for y10 and y11 at the time, they are similar, but there is a different exam question which you may want to change in case you are using different exam board / specification. The worksheet was definitely taken from TES, for which I would like to say thank you for a great idea. I will put the worksheet out separately for free under the name 'Was the Munich Beer Hall Putsch a success of a failure?' for whoever wants to use it.

Mi ciudad - Activities in town, photo card worksheet and project AQA GCSE

3 Resources
This is a brief bundle for the young GCSE Spanish class or for the revision of the older students. I included 2 versions of my observation lesson (practice of Section C reading exam task), a photo card help worksheet (can also be used for the topic writing practice) and a research project about a favourite town with the model answer that practically summarises the topic vocabulary and can also be used for the revision tasks (can be amended if needed).

This is a Christmas lesson that I created for my higher KS3/KS4 Spanish students and mainly for my lesson observation. The idea is to have some fun and to do some writing as well! The lesson starts with a friendly - easy starter and pronunciation slide to learn how to pronounce some Christmas / winter related words. Then we move on to a quizlet task to learn / revise some X-mas vocabulary and Rally Coach activity to check whether we remember the words. I have then included a conjugation activity with the Christmas verbs (you need some dices!) followed by a competitive translation activity (make sire you have similar ability students working together).

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 a list of grammar / some more can be added. The idea is to promote independent learning via research. There are two choices: a bilingual movie poster (I wanted them to practise translating authentic information) about a movie of their choice or an interview with a famous actor/musician. 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). Those who chose the second option have to prepare a script in Spanish and if there is enough time, 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!

Homework Nazi Germany: Exam questions

(0)
These are homework materials that I have prepared to assess the knowledge of my students on the topic of Nazi Germany. They are created out of past exam papers, exam-like questions out of my head / book and some internet research. They were designed to gradually train them on how to correctly answer the questions and made it simple for me to check as in some case I just had to circle the missing point!
