Year 6

Year 6 Speaking and Writing language scaffold


¡Hola Year 6 y Feliz Año Nuevo / Happy New Year!  

Welcome back to your year 6 Spanish class page.  I will be posting home learning Spanish  every two weeks.

Lessons 1 and 2 are now up-loaded for Thursdays 14th January and 21st January. 

I do expect you to do some Spanish every week. Please email your work to me. You will find my email at the top of my main class page.  ¡Gracias!


We will start the New Year by learning how to talk about sport and our hobbies in Spanish. 


Spanish Certificates! 

This half term Year 6, I will be looking for hard work and engagement with Spanish home learning  

Enjoy and remember - little and often will turn you into  great linguists!

Spring 1/  Primavera 1 (2021)

Hola, I think it is a good idea to have a routine of doing your Spanish on a Thursday, as this would have been our 'Spanish and Music' day. If you want to do more Spanish, please do!

18/01/21 In Year 6 this year, we are back in Spain. We have already learnt a poem by the Spanish writer and poet Federico García Lorca. A little later on we will be looking at Moorish Spain. We will also be looking at the Spanish Civil War through the eyes of a little boy called Antonito and his beautiful black bull, Paco. The story is called Toro Toro and is by Michael Morpurgo. Normally I would read this to you in class, instead I am reading and recording a chapter for you each week. Previous chapters will be moved to the end of the Spring page (they take up too much room at the top of this page!)

Keep singing your Spanish Christmas Carols over the holidays. Remember to look at my main MFL page for Spanish activities. There is also a  nativity story and a Christmas film. You might remember this film from Year 3 smiley I'm hoping you will understand more of it in Spanish.

¡Hola! (Week/Semana 11,  27 de noviembre) 

I hope you all enjoyed learning the poem 'La Mariposa' by Federico García Lorca in yesterday's lesson. I certainly did! I was very impressed with your interpretation of the poem and also with how well you learnt to recite it with the hand actions in such a short time.


We're going to practice this poem some more. I would like you to be able to recite it with confidence for our Spanish Christmas lesson in two weeks time. I also include a craft activity making a 'mariposa paper fan'. This is for you to have some craft fun and also to practice your Spanish writing.


Click on the enclosed pdf. Slide 1 picture of the poet and Pablo Picasso Slide 2: Listen to both versions of the poem again. Slide 3 Listen to the translation of the poem. Go back to slide 2 and practice reciting the poem in Spanish with the hand actions to match. Challenge: See if you can do this from memory! 

I look forward to hearing your poems at our Spanish Christmas lesson

¡Hola! (Week/Semana 10,  20 de noviembre) 

I am sorry you did not have a Spanish class this week year 6. Don't worry, I have lots for you to do, so read on! Staying with the topic of 'mi familia'(unit 5) you can practice this further using linguafun: presentation, activities and end of unit quiz (print the certificate if you can) Keep learning the vocabulary I gave you last week. If you have time please watch the following clip about how to say the 'names of siblings' (se llama...., tiene....). This is an easy start and reinforcement of the third person which we will be looking at in more detail a little later on.  ¡hasta la vista! See you next week.

I will be testing you next week! wink

Spanish 21: saying the age of brothers and sisters

¡Hola! (Week/Semana 9,  12 de noviembre) 

As it is Remembrance Week, I thought we would learn a poem by Federico García Lorca called 'La Mariposa' (The Butterfly). He was a famous Spanish poet who was killed during the Spanish Civil War. It is a beautiful poem - I am posting a pdf with the words (which we will learn in class) and a link to it, just click on the picture.

Homework/Deberes: to get you used to using your Yr 6 MFL page, I am setting you the task this week of learning the vocabulary for 'la familia', which you will need in order to watch the film 'Coco'. Please watch the video clip to learn the vocabulary and have fun playing the games. You can also access Linguafun. I will be testing you next week!

Spanish 22: working out new family words

Enabling children to work out new family vocabulary using the pattern of family words already learned

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

This week, Year 6 are starting the second half of Autumn term by re-visiting (we first met this festival in Year 5) 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 - we started this film last year but were not able to finish.... ) and starting our topic on the family with descriptions using the 3rd person.
