Spring 2

Las Mascotas - Pets

 

18.3.24

 

              

 

This week we learned how to describe animals with colours.  In Spanish, the colour (adjective) comes after the animal (noun).  This makes the word order very strange.

Today we learned how to use the Spanish bilingual dictionary.

This week, we learnt how to ask each other if we have pets, and to reply to the question.

 

                 

 

No I haven't got one.

 

We practised the question and different replies during Quiz Quiz Trade.

Then we looked at all the words we have met so far that contain the letter 'u'.  In Spanish this is pronounced as 'oo'.

Find Someone

To play this game we each started with one Spanish day of the week written on paper.  We then had to find 6 other people to make a group of 7, showing all the days of the week.  We then had to stand in the correct order.

       

 

                   The Winners!                                                         The Runners Up

This week, we have been practising our colours and learning how to read and write them in Spanish.

         

 

We learnt how to ask the question What colour is it? in Spanish.  We practised asking and answering the question with a partner, using the colour fans.

               

 

                   

 

               
 

 

 

¿De qué color es?

We looked at the spellings of the colours and spotted some of the key sounds we have already met.

                   

 

We started our Sounds Collection Book, grouping words together that contain the same spelling and sound.

           

 

3.10.23

Today we tried to remember the phrases we learnt last week to express how we are feeling, using some letters as clues to help us.

 

       

 

 

                 

  

We played some games using the numbers from 0-10 in Spanish that we already know.   Then we looked more closely at their spellings and pronunciation.

 

We discovered that in Spanish the letter is pronounced as th  if it comes before an i or e.                  

 

The letter is also pronounced as th.

              

We practised reading and writing the numbers.

   

 

 

 

26.9.23

Today we practised asking and answering this question, using actions to help us remember the different responses.

Welcome Back!

It's been great to hear that some of you have spoken  Spanish on your holidays!  Today we talked about other countries where Spanish is spoken.

 

We practised our,  What is your name? song to help us remember how to ask and answer the question. 

We practised the question on lots of people in the class.

              

 

Then we looked at the phrases written down, to see how the sounds are represented in Spanish.

 

      

 

                                       

 

Finally, we practised writing the question and answer. We discovered that in Spanish, there is an upside down question mark at the beginning of a question, as well as the ordinary one at the end.
