As I mentioned in the previous post I am going over past paper discursive essays with the A2 Spanish group as part of our revision and preparation for the forthcoming exam. In this post I have attached resources related to the following essay – “La tecnología de hoy amenaza con destrozar la cultura tradicional. ¿Qué piensas? Razona tus opiniones.” I have focused on reading and have incorporated resources on e-books (posted previously) as well as some things I have put together on bookcrossing. The aim is to discuss what impact technology is having on reading. The essay is completed for homework.
At the moment with the U6 group I am revising in preparation for the exams which will soon be upon us. I am taking past paper discursive essays (we follow the EdExcel board) as a prompt for some of the work. As part of a discussion about the value of the Arts in society we have done some work on La Noche de los Museos and an exhibition at the Museo del Prado called “Hoy toca el Prado“. The resources include a lot of translation into Spanish as this is required in the exam. Towards the end of the PowerPoint there is a reading comprehension based on an interview with Miguel Zugaza, the current director of the Prado. While reading comprehension is not part of the exam, the aim is to provide some ideas in order to tackle the homework task which is to respond to the essay title, “En este clima económico el gobierno no debería gastar tanto dinero en las artes. ¿Qué opinas? Razona tus opiniones”.

I mentioned in a previous post that we have been doing a lot at school to ensure that our schemes of work address the requirements of teaching about Life in Modern Britain. The attached resources focus on the language needed to describe friends but also an ideal partner. In working towards this students are presented with two gay characters from the old Antena 3 series Física o Química. We then go on to describe an ideal partner. The worksheet is put together using the gender neutral term “pareja” albeit grammatically it is feminine.
I am about to do some work on issues relating to anti-social behaviour in order to prepare my A2 Spanish group for a past paper discursive essay on how to make good citizens. A large part of the resources I will use come from www.espanish.org.uk/resources (the section on Law and Order) as well as from the AQA Spanish book pages 66-67. My resource attached here is a small introduction to issues raised in Barcelona in relation to this topic area.

This is just a quick post of some resources I put together for a lower ability Year 11 group on the topic of the environment. I have posted some of these resources before, but I have updated quite a few things. Although the presentation is for a lower ability set, some of the resources below are differentiated for more able students.

We have been doing a lot of work mapping Life in Modern Britain across the curriculum and ensuring that the school is promoting values of democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs. As a Stonewall Champion School a lot of work has been going into combatting homophobia and ensuring that this too is embedded in the curriculum. An example of this work is attached in a resource teaching about family and possessive adjectives. The exercise on possessive adjectives presents families in various forms. As we develop more resources at school I will share them.
