Year 3 - Las mascotas (Pets)

Today we learnt the names of some pets.  We discovered that in Spanish there are 2 types of nouns - masculine and feminine.  We sorted  the pets into 2 lists - masculine and feminine.

 

           

 

            

 

 

We tested our memories by filling in the missing letters to spell the name of each pet.

                

 

Next, we explored a Spanish bi-lingual dictionary to find the names of other pets.  We learnt how to use the 2 sides of the dictionary.

               

 

 

Then we practised asking each other, ¿Tienes una mascota? (Have you got a pet?)

 

¿Tienes una mascota? (Have you got a pet?)

Describing animals with colours

This week we watched the Spanish version of 'Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see?' (Oso Pardo).  We found out that in Spanish, the colour (adjective) comes after the noun.  We practised this, using the pets that we have already learnt.

 

Year 4 Spring 2 2022

Las partes de la cara  (parts of the face)

Today we began learning how to say, read and write the parts of the face in Spanish.  We practised with a partner, telling them to touch different parts of the face.

     

Toca... (touch your...)

Toca ... (touch your...)

Then we drew the face and labelled the parts in Spanish.

 

 

Describing an alien's face

 

Today we described alien faces with colours.  We learnt that some colours have endings that agree (change), depending on whether the nouns they describe are masculine or feminine.

 

 

 

   Mi alien tiene...   (My alien has got...)

Describing plural nouns with colours

This week we have been learning how to describe plural parts of the face with colours.  We explored how the endings of the colours also have to be plural to agree with (match) the noun.

     

 

 

Then we described an alien to a partner in Spanish for them to identify.

 

 

   

¿Qué número es mi alien? (What number is my alien?)

Today we had to listen to a description of an alien in Spanish and draw and colour its face.

Today we described our own hair and eyes.

 

Tengo el pelo corto y rubio. ( I have short, blonde hair)

Tengo el pelo corto y rojo. ( I have short, red hair.)

Tengo el pelo largo, liso y castaño. ( I have long, straight, brown hair.)

Year 5 2022

We started the term off by finding out how and why the Mardis Gras Carnival is celebrated in Spain.  We watched some video clips and then had to be detectives to try and work out the meaning of each Spanish sentence.


The Weather

This week we have been learning how to express different weather types in Spanish.   We noticed that there were 3 different groups of phrases used,  and this helped us to remember them.

 

We learnt a rap to help us practise saying the phrases.

Hace sol, hace viento. (It's sunny, it's windy)

Still image for this video

Hace frío, hace calor (It's cold, it's hot)

Still image for this video

Está lloviendo, Está nevando, (It's raining, it's snowing)

Still image for this video

Hay niebla, Hay una tormenta (It's foggy, it's stormy)

Clothes

Today we used the bilingual dictionary to find the names of some clothes in Spanish so that we can build sentences about which clothes we wear in different weather types.

 

The, A, Some

This week we looked at the different words for the, a and some (definite and indefinite articles) in Spanish, using our clothes vocabulary.  We had to think very carefully about each noun and whether it was masculine, feminine, singular or plural.

 

 

Building a sentence

Finally, this half term we put some sentences together, saying which clothes we would wear in different weather.

 

  

Year 6 2022

El deporte (Sport)


Today we started a new topic about sport.  We practised a new question, ¿Qué deporte juegas? 

                                                                                                                  (Which sport do you play?)

 

¿Qué deporte juegas? Which sport do you play?

Spidergram

Today we looked closely at the pronunciation of the word juego (h-w-aygo).  We made a collection of other Spanish words we have met before  that contain this spelling.

Then we learnt how to say the different parts of the verb jugar, and made different sentences by substituting different sports.

 

 

Memorisation

Today we tried to memorise the different parts of the verb jugar.  We all had different methods.  Some people liked to write the words out and others preferred to chant them.  Then we tested ourselves to see how much we could remember.

 

First of all we matched each part to the correct part of the paradigm.

 

Then we tried with nothing to help us.  We were surprised how much we could remember.

 

Hacer (to do)

Today we looked at another verb that is useful when talking about sport, as some sports we do rather than play.

 

We practised making different sentences with these sports and the verb hacer.  We looked for similarities and differences between hacer  and jugar.

Opinions about sports

First, we wrote some simple sentences, giving opinions about sports.

 

This week we looked for adjectives in the dictionary that would help us give a reason for our opinions.

Finally, we wrote some sentences, using the sentence builder to help us.

                                                                                    

 

 

Spring 2 2021

іBienvenidos de nuevo a la escuela!  Welcome back to school!

 

Year 5

Las Asignaturas - School Subjects

 

This half term we guessed that our new topic was school subjects as many of them are cognates or near cognates (the same or almost the same as English words).  We sorted them into masculine, feminine and plural nouns.

Then we learnt some opinion phrases to express our opinions about different subjects.  We learnt some actions to help us remember them.

 

Me gusta/me gustan... I like...

We practised saying each phrase with different school subjects and discovered that some phrases change slightly if they describe a plural subject like maths or science.

Me gusta el deporte. I like sport.

Me gustan las matemáticas. I like maths.

No me gusta/gustan... I don't like...

We wrote different combinations of preferences

 

             

 

We did a listening A or B quiz, identifying which preference was being read out.

 

              

  

                                                              

We learnt how to describe school subjects with 4 different adjectives, and again we did the actions.

La geografía es divertida. Geography is fun.

El deporte es divertido. Sport is fun.

El español es aburrido. Spanish is boring. (I hope not!)

You have worked so hard at home today Year 5.  іEstupendo!  You have built some super ‘because’ sentences,  putting all the pieces we have worked on during the last few weeks together.

No me gustan las matemáticas porque son aburridas. I don’t like maths because its boring.

Year 6

Las Profesiones - Professions

 

We have been learning how to say which jobs we would like to do in Spanish.  We sorted the professions into groups according to their spellings, and  found that some nouns have endings that change, to match the gender of the person they describe. 

       

 

 

 

 

 

 

We made some sentences up about what we want to be when we grow up to practise the different noun endings.

Quiero ser cocinero. I want to be a chef (male).

Still image for this video

Quiero ser cocinera. I want to be a chef (female).

Describing our personal qualities with adjectives

We looked at different qualities needed to do different jobs.  We built some sentences using porque... (because...).

 

 

 

 

 

       

 

Parts of a house

Today we found the names of the rooms in the house in the bilingual dictionary.

¿Dónde está Wally?

Wally está en el baño. (Wally is in the bathroom.)

Still image for this video

Wally está en el comedor. (Wally is in the dining room.)

Still image for this video

Wally está en la cocina. (Wally is in the kitchen.)

Still image for this video

Then we looked for furniture names.

      

We learnt some prepositions to describe in more detail where Wally was.

We read an Easter Egg Hunt story in Spanish and listened out for the prepositions.  Then we sequenced the story.
