Autumn term 1
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: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tOj4hEk2CtU
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 . We will practise actions for each feeling from amazing down to terrible.
Autumn term 2
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.
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: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JfpFDOS34yU
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 1
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. The best books will go on display.
Spring term 2
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.
Summer term 1
We are learning food vocabulary this 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.
Summer term 2
We designed some amazing canteen menus using days of the week, fruit, snacks and typical Spanish food: paella, tortilla, tapas, gambas, gazpacho.
