¡Hola! Welcome to Spanish in the Summer Term. I hope you have been practising!
This summer we will be putting everything together that we have learnt so far this year- lots!
We will learn how to use a Spanish bilingual dictionary, learn how to talk about pets (mascotas) and start a famous story called La Oruga Hambrienta by Eric Carl - The main character is a caterpillar (una oruga) Can you guess which story it is?
My Year 3 Spanish certificate for Summer 1 is going to:
Daniel Well done for all your hard work in Spanish
Remember, Little and often will help you to learn Spanish
Summer 2/ Verano 2
Lessons 1-4 Pet topic/Mis mascotas (my pets)
¡Hola! (junio 2022)
You are going to learn how to say the name of 7 pets in Spanish. We'll also see if we can remember what Un and Una mean. Can you remember which is masculine and which is feminine?
Do you have a pet? If not, what would be your ideal pet and why?
This week we're adding on how to say our pet's name: Se llama - it is called
Summer 1/ Verano 1
Lessons 3 and 4
¡Hola! (martes, 24 de mayo)
Last week we listened to a story called 'Bear's Magic Pencil'. We learnt how to use our bilingual dictionaries to look up new vocabulary and to work out whether the nouns were masculine or feminine.
In lesson 4 we will have a go at writing our own version of the story with our own 'magic pencil'! and the help of a bilingual dictionary:)
Below, is a slightly different Spanish version of the story: Bear's Magic Pencil/Un Cuento de Oso. How does it compare with the English version? Can you hear the different way the 'll' is pronounced in se llama ( is called)? It has more of a 'je' sound than 'y' sound. This is because the reader is from Argentina in South America.
What would you do if you had a magic pencil? Listen to the story below about: Malala's Magic Pencil
Spring 2/ Primavera 2
Lesson 8: Reviewing our Spanish from Spring term /Primavera
(Tuesday, 28th March/ martes, 28 de marzo)

Lessons 6 and 7: Reciting la araña pequeñita Spring 2/Primavera 2
(Tuesday, 15th March/ martes, 15 de marzo)
¡Hola! Year 3 was 'fántastico' reciting Incy Wincy Spider in Spanish. I was very impressed at how well so many of you were able to recite it from memory too using the actions to match. Here are the adjectives we learnt to describe different types of spiders we met using the same rhyme format:
pequeñita (small), grande (big), triste(sad), feliz(happy), rápido/a(fast), lento/a (small)
Language detectives: Why do you think the spelling of the adjectives that usually end in 'o' change to an 'a' to describe la araña? Tell me next lesson
I have up-loaded the longer version of la araña pequeñita that we listened to and learnt today. Have fun practising it at home!
Lesson 5: Learning a Spanish Nursery Rhyme Spring 2/Primavera 2
(Tuesday, 8th March/ martes, 8 de marzo)
¡Hola! Today we are going to learn a famous Nursery Rhyme in Spanish. I will post the rhyme after our lesson. I would like to see if you can guess which nursery rhyme it is?
up-date to today's lesson: I was very impressed at how quickly you learnt the rhyme in Spanish and you were great language detectives too! You remembered how to say THE in Spanish: el and la and that La araña is a spider, it is a feminine noun and uses la (not el) Well done! Here is the rhyme for you to practise at home. This is your homework!
