The Spanish School at Home
En el Restaurante - Going to the Restaurant
Read the entry for this unit under the Topic section above before doing any of these activities.
You can download all the documents below this post (scroll down).
Once again, I ask you to be creative. There are two role-play activities. You can either do it with your family, or just read it aloud.
Act it Out
Our favourite section is back. You can do it on video or as an audio. You choose whatever suits you the best.
This one is very scripted, but the next one gives you more freedom to create your own role-play. Read them carefully and take your time to understand what they say. You will need to use the menu that I have created just for you:
You can either post your work on Twitter, or send it to your class SeeSaw account. I answer very quickly on Twitter, but keep in mind that I only go to school on Monday, so if you send your work to SeeSaw, I can only check on it when I'm in school.
N.B.: there seems to be lots of technical probles with Spanish Class SeeSaw at the moment. Please, do not send anything there till further order. My apologies for the inconveniences.
The Spanish School at Home
Spring 2 - week 5
¡Buenos días, Year 4! How is going everything? We are experiencing a new way to learn at home with your family. Strange and exciting all at once. It is in view of that excitement that I decided to post an activity involving everyone at home. How? With one of our 'Act it Out'!
Activity: practice this 'act it out' at home, choose the setting, the outfit, be original and creative! Once done, upload your video to SeeSaw (your class' account).
Reward: a good performance will earn you 2 stickers; a great performance will earn 3 stickers. I will put them myself on your books (in days on which I work in school). If you earn a new certificate, I will seesaw it to you as a picture. I'll be doing this until it is possible to hand it in as we used to.
Tips for success:
- Pronunciation: we must work hard on this one. Check out each word and use the following chart to assist you in your task:
REMEMBER: in Spanish we never blend vowels, we say them separately. Also, the letter "u" after "q" (as in "que", meaning 'what') is silent (e.g. "que" should be said like 'keh').
- Adjectives: they always come after the noun. Make sure that they agree in gender (masculine/feminine) and number (singular/plural) with the noun (e.g. "abrigo rojo y bonito").
- Pay the price: for this please visit the Topic section of Spanish Year 4 above for both Spring 1 and 2. It helps writing the pretend price on a tag first. Make sure you make it easy:
(2 digits whole number) + " , " + (2 digits decimal number) (e.g. 25,50 €) - Please note that on the continent it is a decimal comma, and not a decimal point like here; also, the euro symbol is placed after the number and not before like we do with the pound symbol.
- Practice your numbers: you can check the Topic section of Spanish Year 3 - Also, use this word bank (for smaller numbers, please revisit Year 3's section):
- Don't forget it is a performance: now this is the opportunity to be 'drama queens' and 'drama kings'. Make it well, but make it funny. Involve your parents, use puppets, dress up, etc. Enjoy the experience!
This should cover everything. Please do not be in a rush. Take your time. ¡Buena suerte!
