Spanish Lessons at Home

Mrs Tyler is very proud of her students as throughout the period of remote teaching they have excelled themselves in their Spanish lessons.  They have practised their spoken Spanish during remote sessions with Sarah Leyva, our Mexican language assistant; got to grips with new topics and grammar, and shown a huge amount of creativity and flair in response to project tasks.  They have worked collaboratively, using the wonders of technology, and independently.  ¡Well done, chicas!

The wide variety of work produced by students in Year 9 and Year 10 Spanish classes over the last couple of months has included some excellent fashion shows, presentations on film and TV preferences narrated by the students as well as work on Cinco de Mayo. Another task for Year 11 was based on the lyrics of the  song 'Gracias a la vida' by Mercedes Sosa and is available to download at the base of this page.

Pupils have also benefited from new resources such as this one created by Mrs Tyler Serena Williams: Mi modelo a seguir to practise combining tenses whilst talking about a role model before going on to create their own digital book.

Examples of Spanish work

‘Cinco de Mayo’ 

Year 9 followed a puzzle trail to find out more about Cinco de Mayo, enabling them to produce invitations and posters to build their understanding of this celebration in Mexico and the US.

Cinco de Mayo work examples

The cookery demonstrations filmed by Sarah Leyva, created for the after-school Cultural Club in May, showcasing several easy Mexican dishes are shared below for the wider community to enjoy.
