Hola chicos y chicas! I hope you have had a great half term and are ready to get back in to your Spanish learning! This week we are going to recap the days of the week and the months of the year and see if you can use all of your hard work to say when your birthday is and find out when other people's birthdays are too!
Which day is it?
After you have completed the sheet, can you.....
- write down the birthdays of everyone in your family?
- write down the birthdays of your friends?
- teach someone else how to say when their birthday is in Spanish?

Hola a todos! I hope you have had a great weekend despite the rain. Here is something to brighten your day! Did you know that there are 20 countries in the world that speak Spanish? So many places for you to visit and to practise using your Spanish! This week we are going to have a closer look at the South American country of Cuba. See what you can find out about this Spanish speaking country!
Cuba Fact Sheet
- produce a poster all about the wonderful things you now know about Cuba?
- teach your family 5 facts about Cuba?
- have a go at producing some Cuban artwork?
- try making some Cuban meals to taste?
Don't forget you can take a photo of anything you do and upload it to Purple Mash so you can share your great work!

Hola! ¿Qué tal? This week we are going to have another look at Los Colores - colours. Can you remember any of the colours you learned in the Autumn term? I hope you can, as I know you loved the games you played to help remember them! Don't worry if you can't think of any, as this short online lesson will help you.
Now that you have the colours fresh in your mind, see if you can now use the vocabulary to help you with your tasks. Can you.....
- say and remember the colours of the rainbow? What colour is añil?
- write a sentence in Spanish to say what your favourite colour is? eg Mi color favorito es….
- create a song of your own for remembering the colours?
When you know the colours in Spanish, you can use them to describe nouns but you need to remember that in Spanish the colour goes after the noun eg Tengo un vestido rojo (I have a red dress)
Practise the colours by colouring in the rainbow and see if you can find them in the word search.
W/C 22nd June
Hola chicos y chicas! You are doing brilliantly with your Spanish recap lessons and it has been great hearing how much you are loving your Spanish learning - keep up the good work! This week we will be looking again at La Ropa - clothes. Have a quick look at the online lesson to help remember the names for different clothes and listen to the song to see if you can hear when to wear different clothes for certain times of the year.
La ropa puzzle
La ropa labelling
As part of your Spanish revision, we have looked again at colours - los colores, which will be really useful to us now, as we can describe the colour of the clothes. To do this, we use the verb tengo, which means I have. Remember that in Spanish we always place adjectives after the noun in the sentence, so if I wanted to say 'I have a green skirt', I would say Tengo una falda verde.
- draw an outfit, colour it in and label what you are wearing including the colour?
- write sentences in Spanish about what you wearing using the verb tengo or using estoy usando (I am wearing)?
Use the colour vocabulary sheet to help you with your spellings and correct pronunciation. Don't forget to upload a photo of your outfit to Purple Mash so that we can all see it!
W/C 29th June
Hola chico y chicas! I hope that you are all ok and ready to start your Spanish learning this week! Our learning is going to be a little different this week as we are going to complete our learning using Bitesize. If you have not used Bitesize before for online lessons - it is brilliant! It has a mix of video clips to watch, as well as bits to read and worksheets you can do. Don't worry if you don't have a printer though, as you can draw out anything you need on to paper instead. Our lesson for this week is all about your family and pets - La familia y mascotas.
W/C 6th July
Hola! Què tal? You did so well with your work last week on family and pets using the Bitesize lesson that I wanted to let you have the chance to talk about your own family using your Spanish this week! Listen to the song and watch the online lesson to refresh your memory of the vocabulary again to help you with your tasks.
Now that you know the names for different family members, can you.....
- Create a poster of your family and label in Spanish who they are? (madre, padre)
- Write sentences about your family to include how to say their name and age? eg Mi madre se llama Sarah y tiene trienta años
Remember that in Spanish se llama means is called and when we talk about how old someone is we say how many years they have by using the verb tengo. If you want to say how old you are, you would say Tengo siete (7) or ocho (8) años. If you want to say how old someone else is, you use tiene eg Mi padre tiene trienta y cinco.
W/C 13th July
Hola chicos y chicas! I hope you are all well and looking forward to your Spanish learning this week. I have been really impressed with how much you are learning and remembering so this week we are going to learn a brand new topic in Spanish! This week we will be learning all about los frutos - fruits! We are going to learn 6 fruits and use our knowledge of numbers and colours to be able to say how many of each fruit we have and what colour it is. Our learning this week is on a PowerPoint, so all of the video clips and songs you will be able to watch through the PowerPoint but look out for any slides that you will need to not have on slide show so that you will be able to play the games. Have a fun week learning about fruits!
W/C 20th July
Es nuestra última semana de español! It is our last week of Spanish and you have done amazingly well at recapping lots of the topics we have covered so far in Year 3. We have practised knowing our numbers 1-20, days of the week, months of the year, found out about a the Spanish speaking country of Cuba, recapped your colours, clothes and family and pets! This week, you may like to go back to any of these topics again and watch the online lessons to recap vocabulary you are still not sure of or to listen/watch some of your favourite songs and video clips. Lastly, for a bit of fun with your family, why not see if you can find out the answers to this quiz all about Spain and it's culture! You can use any way you like to find the answers and then check to see if you are right- buena suerte- good luck!
