Year 3 Spanish

Autumn term 2020

All year 3 classes have started Spanish lessons learning how to greet each other in Spanish. We have looked at the very interesting upside down exclamation mark which tells us at the start of the sentence to speak with a very happy voice! ¡Hola! ¡Buenos días! We are learning Spanish phonics to help us pronounce words really well.

Listen to the song we start lessons with:


We are learning how to ask for and state our names in Spanish. We have seen the upside down question mark which lets us know that a question is coming up and we should make our voice sound questioning. 

¿Cómo te llamas?  Me llamo...

We are learning to say how we feel in Spanish: ¿Cómo estás?

Lots of children tell me: ¡Estoy estupendo! or even: Estoy fatal cool. We will practise actions for each feeling from amazing down to terrible.

We are learning numbers 1-10, and may even be able to say 11 and 12. We must look carefully at Spanish phonics to help with saying and spelling the numbers correctly. You can look at the letters on the PowerPoint and try to remember the actions and sounds for each one.


Listen to each of the year 3 classes singing numbers 1-10 in Spanish!

Polecats Los números.MP3

Bats Los números.MP3

Hedgehogs Los números.MP3

We will use our numbers to learn how to say our ages. This fantastic song helps us to remember the question and how to form the answer:

Here are some children in year 3 2019-20 asking and answering the 3 introduction questions: How are you? What's your name? and How old are you? They are all speaking from memory. What a lot they have learnt so far! They sound amazing!

As we approach Christmas, we will learn 10 colours and colour in a picture of the Three Kings/Wise Men with a great activity created by Sunderland Schools. The colour code is written in Spanish.


Spring Term 2021


For home learning we are working out how to name some animals. We are putting them into sentences to ask and answer: Do you have an animal?

Summer 2021



We are learning the words for items in our pencil case. We are also finding out that all nouns in Spanish are masculine and feminine. We can normally spot a feminine noun because they often end with the letter "a".


We are creating sentences with pencil case nouns by using the conjugated verb "I have", "I don't have" and "Do you have?"


We will use all the questions we are learning in Spanish to create a lift the flap book. Under each flap we will write the Spanish answer. We can take these home to share our learning and teach someone at home!

Spring term 2020


We are learning more nouns and remembering that some are masculine and some are feminine. This half term, it is words for animals.  There are some funny pictures of the animals to help us remember the Spanish nouns.


We are able to ask "Do you have an animal?" and answer using the Spanish we have already learnt.

We will read and understand the Spanish version of Brown Bear by Bill Martin Jr and Eric Carle - Oso Pardo. We will combine animals and colours to make our own version of the story. Then we will create a mini book about animals and their colour. The best examples will go on display.

Summer term 2019


We are learning food vocabulary in the first half term. We will start healthily looking at fruit words, then move on to snacks and cakes! We will see some funny pictures of the foods to help us remember the Spanish words.


We are learning days of the week. We have a really fun song to sing along to!

We designed some amazing canteen menus using days of the week, fruit, snacks and typical Spanish food: paella, tortilla, tapas, gambas, gazpacho. 

In the second half term we are listening to and understanding the story of The Hungry Caterpillar in Spanish. We are learning a song about the caterpillar. We will record our own song later in the half term.
