The attached resource is nothing great and there will be much better versions out there, but I’m sharing in case it is of use to someone. I have two bottom sets for GCSE Spanish and trying to get them all ready for the heavy demands of the new GCSE speaking exam is daunting. I have a number of SEN students who are finding the work challenging. At my school we follow AQA and the attached booklet is one I will be using from March when I will have covered everything topic-wise. From that point I will be concentrating on final preparation for the oral exam as well as exam technique + general revision.
We are using Rachel Hawkes‘ approach to vocabulary acquisition which she terms as ‘non-negotiables’. We are using the term ‘compulsory language’. I start most lessons running through key bits of language (much of which is essential for students to construct language independently). I have attached some PowerPoint slides as an example. As dull as it is, we just work through the slides and they all tell me the meanings. We have mini-tests as well to make sure they are getting to grips with all the terms. The attached PowerPoint is a collection of many of the slides. They aren’t all used together but are dropped into lessons as appropriate.
