The LCP Primary Spanish Resource Files support the delivery of the National Curriculum at Key Stage 2 by providing teaching plans that are fully compatible with the Key Stage 2 Framework for languages. Each section of work ensures coherence and progression through the activities and contains a detailed medium-term plan and section introduction in a standard format for easy reference.
What the material consists of
Each section contains:
• a medium-term plan
• a comprehensive introduction that includes all the vocabulary covered in the section
• between four and seven easy-to-follow teaching plans containing the following components:
– learning objectives and learning outcomes
– links with the National Curriculum Programme of Study and the MFL Framework for Key Stage 2
– list of resources needed
– list of vocabulary covered
• photocopiable sheets that can be laminated and cut up for use as flashcards
• activity sheets for children to complete either on their own or with a partner.
• Electronic Flipbook pages provide colourful illustrations and photographs that can be used to introduce a topic.
• Electronic Flashcards provide pictures and text to introduce and reinforce vocabulary.
• There are two CDs. The first contains the Electronic Flipbook and the Electronic Flashcards in PDF format to enable you to project them on to a whiteboard. You can click on captions and other text on the Flipbook pages to hear the words read out by native speakers. Rolling over the illustrations triggers simple animations.
• The second CD contains an audio version of all the Spanish vocabulary for each section, read by a native speaker. This is a useful guide to pronunciation. There is a pause after each word or phrase, during which you can practise saying the words.
How to use the material
The file is split into six sections. There is enough material in each section to cover a term’s work. The topics within each section are flexible and can be taught as individual lessons, split, grouped or extended depending on your needs and the time you have available. Extension activities at the end of each topic provide further ideas.
Sections 1-3 are intended for delivery to Year 3 and Sections 4-6 to Year 4. Each topic caters for a mixedability class. If you wish to teach younger children using these materials then the differentiation section in each topic offers ideas to support the children.
The LCP Primary Spanish Resource Files contain all the content and guidance that you need to present Spanish lessons, but leave the style and pace of the delivery to you. Particular care has been taken to enable non-specialist teachers to feel confident in delivering the material.
A guide to lesson evaluation
Here is a checklist of questions you may like to ask yourself.
• Were the lesson objectives achieved by:
– all the children?
– most of the children?
– a few children?
• Is more reinforcement needed, and if so when should this be carried out?
• Did I explain the following clearly:
– gender concept?
– familiar/polite forms of address
– longer responses, e.g. Sf, estoy muy bien, gracias, and did children understand the meaning of each word?
– out-of-school learning?
• Was my classroom organisation appropriate?
• Did I use time and resources in the most efficient way?
• Did pupils respond positively to the tasks set?
• Was my pronunciation good enough?
• Was the children’s pronunciation good enough/did they make good progress?
• Did any children seem confused with responses?
• If so, how can I avoid confusion next time?
