Year 3 Spanish
Autumn term 2022
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.

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.
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 these year 3 classes singing numbers 1-10 in Spanish!

Spring Term 2023
We are learning 9 pencil case nouns so that we can ask and answer useful questions in the classroom. Nouns in Spanish are masculine or feminine and we are learning about this grammatical idea. Do we need to say "un" or "una"?
We are using pencil case nouns in a question to ask "Do you have...?" and in answers to say "I have..." or "I don't have...": "Do you have a rubber?" or "I don't have a pencil."
We are remembering colour adjectives that we learned last term, so that we can try describing the colour of an item.
We are working towards making a lift-the-flap book that we will share at home at the end of term. Our books are all in Spanish! Here are photos of all the work. The very best work will go on display in school later in the year.
Summer Term 2023
We are learning days of the week. We have a really fun song to sing along to! We will also learn fruit and food words, that a very hungry insect likes... We are finding out how to use a bi-lingual dictionary.
We are listening to and recognising key words in 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.
