Hola chicos y chicas! I hope you have had a great half term and are ready for your Spanish learning. This week we are going to recap items you would find in your pencil case - En mi estuche. Some of these you will remember from when we looked at this topic in Year 5. I am going to challenge you this week by using positional vocabulary in Spanish to describe where your pencil case items are. Buena suerte!
Now you have reminded yourself of the pencil case objects, can you...…..
- draw your pencil case and label 6 items in it?
- create 6 sentences to say what you have in your pencil case including how many you have of them and the colour too? eg Tengo dos lápices rojos - don't forget to add plural endings and the colour to come after the noun too
- use positional language to say where the items are? eg Hay cuatro lápices rojos al lado de un sacapuntas verde
al lado de - next to
de lante de - in front of
detrás de - behind
debajo de - under
encima de - on top of

Hola a todos! I hope you have had a great weekend and managed to keep out of the rain. Here is something to help you feel sunny inside because it is a place where the sun shines almost all the year through. This week we are going to return to looking at our Spanish speaking country of Costa Rica to remind ourselves of what a fascinating and beautiful place it is with a culture that is bursting with colour and vitality!
Watch these videos and read these pieces of information to help remind you of this stunning country and its culture.
Costa Rica Fact Sheet
- create a new fact sheet to the one you created before with more information on it?
- perhaps create a tourist leaflet of information about things to do in Costa Rica?
- create art work in the style of a particular Costa Rican artist or recreate a piece of artwork you have seen already in the street art video?
- try making some of your own Costa Rican food to sample and create a menu to make someone else some food as a flavour of Costa Rican food?
- teach someone in your family 8 facts about Costa Rica?
- create a crossword of key words linked to Costa Rica with clues for finding the answers?
Don't forget you can take photos of anything you do to upload to Purple Mash for others to see your fabulous work!

Hola! ¿Qué tal? This week we are going to look back at knowing parts of our body in Spanish. Can you remember any parts of your face? What about other body parts? Don't worry if you can't remember any, as the short online lesson will help to refresh your memory of some of these.
Now that you have jogged your memories of names of parts of the body, see if you can use what you have learned from the online lesson and the extra vocabulary given in the song to label these parts on the body outlines: Cabeza, hombros, manos, pies, ojos, boca, orejas, nariz, piernas, rodillas, cadera, cuello, lengua (tongue)
Now that you know so many parts of the body, try to challenge yourself by completing these tasks. Can you....
- describe some parts of your body using your knowledge of colours and size? (grande - big, pequeña - small) Remember that the colour and size goes after the noun and you must use the correct masculine/feminine endings as well as plural endings
- use Tengo....(I have)? eg Tengo dos ojos azules y una nariz pequeña
- translate description sentences to draw, colour and label a monster?
- create your own monster description for someone else to draw out using all of our learned vocabulary?
Use this description to help you with the last 2 tasks:
El monstruo tiene una cabeza amarilla grande con cuatro ojos verdes, una boca azul pequeña, una nariz negra grande, seis manos pequeñas, hombros grandes, ocho pies negros pequeños y dos orejas morrados grandes.

Hola chicos y chicas! Espero que estés teniendo una buena semana! (I hope you are having a good week) This week we are going to recap a topic from Year 5 that you did all about what you like to do in your spare time - Pasatiempos - hobbies! Refresh your memory of some of the hobbies you might have in this online lesson and how to say if you do/don't play a sport.
Let's see if you can now use everything you know to help you with these tasks. Can you.....
- say if you like or don't like playing/doing something?
- use por qué to ask why they like/don't like something and answer with a simple opinion?
- translate a text in Spanish and answer questions about it?
Translate and answer

Hola chicos y chicas! I hope that you are ready for your Spanish learning this week! We are going to do something a little different, as we are going to do an online Spanish Bitesize lesson. If you haven't been on Bitesize before - it's brilliant! It has a mix of video clips, information to read, worksheets/quizzes to complete and is really fun. Our lesson this week is all about your family and pets - familia y mascotas. As we are recapping this topic, the lesson is for Year 4 because this was the year you first learned the vocabulary all about your family and pets. Don't worry if you do not have a printer, as you can draw out anything you need to do on paper.

Hola a todos! The weeks are flying by now and you are doing so well with recapping your Spanish- keep up the good work! This week we are going back to being able to tell the time - ¿Qué hora es? What time is it? Can you remember how to say o'clock times, half past times, times past/to the hour? Don't worry if you don't, as the online lesson will help to jog your memory!
Have a listen to this song - what times could you hear? Can you remember how to say it is quarter past a time? What about 10 mins past 4? Use the song to help remind you of how to write times and then do the sheet. If you don't have a printer, just draw around something round and put the numbers on the clock along with the times.
Now that your heads are full of how to say different times, can you......
- Practise saying your numbers 1-12?
- Remember to use menos when saying times to the next hour eg 2:40pm would be Son las tres menos veinte because you are saying it is 3 o'clock minus 20 minutes.
- Write the times in Spanish for your daily routine?
- Create a matching pairs game to practise finding the digital time and the time in Spanish? eg 4:10 would match with son las cuatro y diez - don't forget to use google translate to help you check your times!

Hola chicos y chicas! I hope that you are all feeling great and looking forward to the last few weeks of your Spanish revision. This week we will be looking again at the weather - el clima/tiempo. When we learned about this topic back in Year 4, you learned how to say what the weather was like and created simple role-plays of how to say what the weather forecast was for each day. Our learning for this week is all on a PowerPoint, so you will find the online lesson, song, video clips, tasks on the slides but make sure you are using 'slide show' to be able to access the links. Have fun recapping your knowledge of the weather!
W/C 20th July
Es nuestra última semana de español! It is the last week of our Spanish and you have done brilliantly at recapping lots of the topics we have covered since Year 3. We have looked at food, what's in your pencil case, Costa Rica, parts of the body, hobbies and sports, family and pets, time and weather. Wow - we certainly have recapped a lot in our home/school learning! This week you may like to go back to any of the online lessons to recap any vocabulary you are still unsure of or watch/listen to any of the songs you have enjoyed. Why not try out this fun Spanish culture quiz with your family! You can use whatever you like to find the answers and then check back with the answer sheet - buena suerte!
