Year 6 Spanish

Year 6 are in their fourth year of learning Spanish here at Bassett Green Primary School!


Autumn 2023 - Spring 2024


We are learning the names for family members in Spanish. We are noticing the similarities in the Spanish words between pairs of relatives e.g. brother and sister. We are using a bi-lingual dictionary to find out the meaning of the family nouns in English and we are working out whether we need to use "un" or "una" for the English word "a" in sentences such as "I have a brother." We are also working out how to adapt the sentence to say "I have two brothers."


We are spending time looking back at how to say "What's your name?", "How are you?", "How old are you?", "When is your birthday?", "What sport do you like?" and "Where do you live?". However, now we are learning how to say and write the answers to these questions for "he" or "she" so that we can describe someone else.


Some children are describing someone in their family and others and borrowing famous people to be in their family.


Here are the pupils' descriptions. What fantastic Spanish!

Summer Term 2024


We are listening to a song telling a traditional fairy story in Spanish. We are improving listening and dictionary skills by identifying key vocabulary and editing the song into a story, and then we are improving our reading skills by telling the story of the Sleeping Beauty in Spanish. 


We completed this unit last before the Covid pandemic. Here are children from year 6 in 2020 reading the story. Choose a video to watch:

We also improved our dictionary skills further by replacing the main characters and some other key nouns and adjectives to create and read our own version of a (crazy) fairy story. We used pictures to act the story for other children to enjoy.

Previous units of learning:


Autumn Term 2021

We are learning to talk about the weather and joining in with a fun Spanish weather song. We are creating simple weather forecasts for Spain.  


We are learning how to say what we like to do in different weather by including sports and hobby phrases learnt in year 5. We can say sentences such as "When it's cold, I like to watch TV."


Watch the video to see some forecasts.

Yr 6 Weather

We are learning lots of clothes nouns and can join in with a song about clothes. We can describe the colour of an item of clothing and can state what we like to wear in different weather. 


We began preparation for making concertina characters wearing what we described in Spanish.


Here are some examples of work from the 2020-21 academic year:

Summer 2021


We are reading a formal letter from footballer Fernando Torres introducing himself, including all the language we have been learning since year 3. We are using the letter to help us create a letter from footballer Ferran Torres, before writing a letter of introduction from ourselves to our secondary school Spanish teacher.

Spring Term 2020


Before the Easter break, we are looking at a traditional Spanish Easter cake recipe in Spanish. We found out the ingredients and looked for Spanish instruction verbs in the dictionary. The recipe is in the powerpoint below. Watch the video of how to make these delicious buns on YouTube: 

Summer Term 2019

We are preparing and practising interviews, which include all the questions and answers we have learnt since year 3. Lots of us are choosing to disguise ourselves with hats, scarves, masks and other costumes. 


Here is our video from summer 2019:
