The Spanish School at Home
Spring 2 - week 5
Buenas tardes a todos. It seems that we will have to continue our learning at home so, why not doing it in a fun way? Since we have been learning about sports and playground games in Spanish for quite a while, we will continue with this topic for one more "session".
I know that most of you are following 'P.E. with Joe' every morning, so this gave me the idea of creating our own P.E. training session in Spanish at home. And this is how we are going to do it:
P.E. with Year 5 – Educación Física con año 5 de primaria
Our activity will be making our own P.E. training session in Spanish. How? Very easy! Just follow these steps:
1 – Greetings: we will start by greeting the audience with the usual expressions (e.g. "Buenos días", "buenas tardes", "hola", "¿qué tal estás?"). Whatever you use, do it correctly.
2 – Introduce yourself: very simple. Just say “Me llamo (your name). Vamos a hacer un poco de ejercicio juntos” (My name is... We are going to do some exercises together). If you want to do the video with someone else (i.e. mum, dad, brother, sister), then each one of them introduces him- or herself with “me llamo…”. Also, you can have a go with “este es mi papá/hermano” (this is my dad/brother) or “esta es mi mamá/hermana” (this is my mum/sister), “este es mi hijo/hija” (this is my son/daughter).
3 – Calentamiento (warm up exercises): we can combine exercises from these three categories. We only do 3 to 5 exercises in this section:
4 – Ejercicios (exercises): this is where we do exercise proper. We will only do 3 different exercises, each one following the same pattern:
5 – Despedida (goodbye): just say “Espero que os haya gustado” (I hope you liked it) and “Muchas gracias. ¡Adiós!” (thank you very much. Bye!).
Tips for success:
Once you have your video recorded and edited (if you so wish, of course), please upload it to Twitter so our Poppy Road children and teachers can do your P.E. session at home. If you don’t want to be seen on Twitter, you can always send it to SeeSaw.
Your video will be titled “Educación Física con (your name)”.
Rewards: just doing this activity will earn you 4 stickers, but if you do a very good and original work the recompense will be of 5 stickers instead. (I’ll put them myself on your Spanish challenge award books when I come to school next week). If you are lucky to get a new certificate, I will post this on Twitter and share it with you. Maybe someday I will be able to hand it in to you.
¡Mucho ánimo y adelante!
