Cognates in the City

Today in Spanish we were language detectives, trying to deduce the meaning of some new words connected to the city.  We listened to the words first before we read them.  Some were easy to guess because they are cognates or near cognates (the same or almost the same as English words).  Then we used the bilingual dictionary to find other places in the city.

Zog the robot is looking for the cake shop as he wants a chocolate cake.  We labelled a map to help him, and learnt how to describe the position of the buildings.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We learnt how to make a contraction when using these phrases with a masculine noun.

 

     

 

El supermercado está al lado de la panadería. The supermarket is next to the bakery.

 Then we learnt how to put together the verb ir (to go), and say where different groups of people are going.

    

This is the...

 

Today we learnt  that in Spanish there are 2 different words for, 'this'. 

      Éste  (for a masculine noun)

    Ésta  (for a feminine noun)

The Weather

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today we learnt how to say different types of weather in Spanish.  We matched the cards then practised answering and asking the question, ¿Qué tiempo hace?  (what's the weather like?) with a partner.

Clothes

We learnt the names of some clothes, and looked at the different words in Spanish for a, the and some.

We also learnt some new adjectives to describe clothes with.

                                   

We built some sentences describing the clothes we wear in different weather.

 

 

 

When it's hot I wear sun glasses

Fruit

Today we have been learning about fruit.  We sorted fruit into masculine and feminine nouns, using the definite article 'the'.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then we looked at how the word 'a' and 'the' is different in Spanish, with masculine and feminine nouns.

 

Some masculine fruits.

Some feminine fruits.

Today we looked at the plural form of each fruit.  For most we added 's', but for the nouns ending in 'n' we added 'es'. We also looked at how the word 'the' is different in Spanish for masculine and feminine plural nouns.  We learned how to say we like or dislike certain fruits.

Today we read the Spanish version of The Very Hungry Caterpillar
