Year 5

¡Hola Year 5!  

Welcome to your Spanish class page. I will be posting topics that we have been learning each week for you to practice at home. Please have a go

Remember, little and often will help you to learn Spanish more quickly smiley

Autumn 2/Otoño 2

¡Hola!  Semana 10, 20 de noviembre

I am sorry you did not have your Spanish this week year 5. We were going to start the topic of the body 'mi cuerpo'.  You're going to learn 8 parts of the body and sing a famous song. I wonder what it is ......? smiley Watch the following clip, practice the 'body' words and sing the song. Extra challenge: write the words down and say whether they are masculine or feminine nouns, singular or plural nouns.

Interesting fact and research: The Incas lived in the Andes in South America over 500 years ago. What did they prize the most, in fact considered more valuable than gold or silver and why do you think this is? ..... hint: it has become a key ingredient in European cooking!

 ¡hasta la vista! See you next week.

Spanish 10: saying parts of the body

Enabling children to say 8 parts of the body in Spanish and to sing a song.

¡Hola!  Semana 9, 13 de noviembre

I hope you all enjoyed the code breaking lesson yesterday. See if you can find out more information about Bletchley House, the Enigma machine and Colossus (the giant computer). I am posting the Spanish alphabet and the song that goes with it for you to practice at home. You can also practice the alphabet on Linguafun. Why not have a go at inventing codes for your own Spanish words. Bring them to Spanish next week :)

¡Hola y bienvenidos! (Week/Semana 8,  5 de noviembre) 

This week, year 5 have started the second half of Autumn term by learning about the Hispanic festival for 'Día de los muertos' (Day of the dead). It takes place on All Saints (1st November) and All Souls (2nd November). We looked at the tradition of making an ofrenda (an altar to remember loved ones) and decorating it with their favourite foods, drinks, photos, flowers, candles. I am posting a video story about a family getting ready for this special day and a couple of extra craft activities for pupils to do at home. From next week we will be watching the film 'Coco' (in Spanish with English subtitles smiley) and starting our topic on the family.

Story about the Day of the Dead. A family is busy getting ready and preparing food for this celebration.
