Spring 2

Las Partes de la Cara - The Parts of the Face


Today, we read a book about a  monster in Spanish.   


We listened out for parts of the face and colours that we already know, and used the picture clues to help us decipher new vocabulary.  Then we listened to a Spanish lady telling the story.






This week, we had to listen and identify the alien that our partner described.

Mi alien tiene cinco narices rosas. (My alien has got 5 pink noses)

Then we described our own eyes. 



After that, we looked at ways to describe our hair.




This week, we practised writing descriptions of our aliens, using plural parts of the face, adding  numbers and colours.  We had to make our colours agree with (match) the plural nouns.




Mi alien tiene...     My alien has got...

This week we described aliens with very strange  faces.  We practised using plural parts of the face. 


Mi alien tiene seis orejas. My alien has got 6 ears.

Today, we started to learn the names of the parts of the face.  Two of the parts have the 'j' sound in them, and we looked at other words that we have met before that contain this sound.

Next, we described some alien faces with colours.  We had to make each colour agree with (match) the gender of the noun.

Then we practised giving directions, using a simple school map and footsteps.




Finally, we wrote down some of our directions.   





Where's Wally?

Today we practised the names of parts of the school, but this time we had to say where Wally was.  For this, we need a different part of the verb estar which means to be.





¿Dónde estás?  Where are you?

This week, we started to learn the names of the parts of the school.  We practised them in response to the question  Where are you?

Roscón de Reyes – The King’s Cake

Today we learnt about the special cake that is eaten during Epiphany in Spain. 


The cake is shaped like a crown and decorated with sweets to create the effect of jewels.

Autumn 2


El Gordo

This week, we have been learning about the famous lottery  that takes place in Spain.






Today we practised describing classroom objects with colours. We already knew that the colour comes after the noun in Spanish, but  we have discovered that some colours have endings that change, depending on whether they describe a masculine or feminine noun.







En mi mochila roja. (In my red backpack). Sing the song and practise describing the objects with colours.

Today we looked really closely at the different words for 'a' and 'the' in Spanish.








This week, we learnt a new question and answer.

In pairs, we practised asking each other for different classroom equipment.




¿Tienes un sacapuntas por favor? Have you got a pencil sharpener please?

Classroom Equipment

This week, we have started learning the names of some classroom equipment. We practised matching the objects to their names.


We looked at the difference between the spellings and pronunciation.


       Then we practised asking our partner to pass each object in a short conversation.

Pásame un boli por favor. Pass me a pen please.

We practised our colours in Spanish, by solving some anagrams.


We also collected a group of words  that we have met so far, which all contain the letter i.  In Spanish this is pronounced as ee




This week, we looked back at everything we have done so far this half term.  We sang some songs to help us.

To finish, we listened to the Spanish version of The Gingerbread Man.


We joined in with the repetitive phrases, and listened out for the new bossy words we have learnt recently.

We practised giving and following the instructions with a partner.



We sang an action song to help us to remember the commands.

Today, we sorted anagrams of the new phrases we learnt last week, to express how we are feeling.



Then, we learnt the Spanish numbers from 16-31.


We tried to guess our age in the Headbanz game, using Spanish numbers.



Practise your counting with the rap below.

This week, we looked at a different way of asking How are you?  Then we practised some alternative replies.

We noticed that 2 of the phrases contain the letter u, which sounds like oo in Spanish.







Bienvenido de nuevo - Welcome back! 

I have enjoyed hearing about your holidays in Spain - well done to those of you who tried your Spanish out!

Today, we started by looking at some of the cities in Spain and their famous landmarks.
