Autumn 2 Blog

Year 6

(2021)

Today we have been language detectives.  We looked at a new text and had to look for clues.  We guessed by the layout that it had to be a list.  We also thought that los dientes might be teeth.  We recognised the words la ropa (clothes) and la escuela (school) from work we did in Year 5.  Then with the help of the bilingual dictionary we deduced that it was a list of daily routines.

Telling the time

Today we have been learning how to tell the time in Spanish, so that we can say when we do each daily routine.

            

 

 

Half past the hour times                                                                    A quarter to and past the hour

¿Qué hora es? (What time is it?) Son las ocho y media. (It’s half past 8.)

Now we can put the daily routine and the time we do it, together in a sentence.

Year 5 (2021)

School subjects

Today we had to sort some unfamiliar words out into groups.  We noticed that some were masculine, some were feminine and some were plurals.  A lot of them were almost the same as English words (cognates), so it was easy to guess their meanings.

  

 

Today we learnt how to express opinions about school subjects.  We found that some opinion phrases need to change slightly depending on whether they refer to a singular or plural school subject.

Other phrases stay the same, whether they are describing a singular or plural school subject.

 

 

Today we had to work out which phrases a set of initial letters represented.  We used the chart to help us.

 

 

Next we learnt some adjectives to describe each subject with.  We had to think carefully about which form of the adjective to use as the endings can change depending on whether it is describing a masculine/feminine/singular/plural school subject.

Today we are putting all the bits together and we wrote some sentences giving an opinion about school subjects, including a reason why.  We used the chart to help us build each sentence.

 

     

Year 4 (2021)

Today we learnt some new commands and adverbs to tell us how to do the actions.

Classroom objects

 

Today we learnt the names of some classroom objects.  We used the Spanish bi-lingual dictionaries to help us find more.

 

 

  

 

 

 

Have you got a...?

We used the classroom objects we have learned  in a simple question.

¿Tienes un boli? (Have you got a pen?) Sí tengo, toma. (Yes I have, there you go.)

¿Tienes un boli? (Have you got a pen?) No, no tengo. (No, I haven't got one.)

The and A in Spanish

Today we learnt that there are 2 different words in Spanish for 'a' and 'the' and that they are different for masculine and feminine nouns.  We explored this through the classroom item nouns that we have been learning about.

Describing with a colour

Finally, we learnt how to describe classroom objects with a colour.  We already know that the adjective comes after the noun in Spanish, but today we found out that some colours have endings that change to match (agree with) the gender of the nouns they describe.

Year 3 (2021)

Los colores (Colours)

Today we learnt how to say the colours in Spanish.  We practised asking and answering the question, with a partner.

 

¿De qué color es? What colour is it?

¿Cuántos años tienes? (How old are you?)

Today we learnt how to ask and answer the question, saying our own age.

Days of the week

This week we have been learning how to say the days of the week in Spanish.  We learnt a song to help us remember them and noticed a pattern in the spellings.  Then we had a story with actions about what the aliens do each day of the week.

                   

Feliz Navidad (Happy Christmas)

Today we learnt how to sing a simple Christmas song, to the tune of Jingle Bells.

Year 3 (2020)

 

Today we looked at the shape of Spain and the surrounding countries.  Portugal is like a face and Spain is the hair.

 

What is your name?

We learnt how to ask someone their name and tell them ours in Spanish.  We learnt a song to help us to remember the phrases.

Me llamo... My name is...
