Transition to A level Spanish 2

As I explained in a post a week or two ago, we are trying to prepare our Year 11 students for their A level studies from September. We are putting together transition packs, but are doing this in two phases. Attached is the work I have created for phase 2. I really want to get the balance right between engaging them to do some work and pushing them beyond GCSE while at the same time not putting anyone off taking the subject! Not sure whether I’ve managed it here, but you can adapt it yourselves to your own context. Students work through the three tasks independently.

TASK 1Sentence structure /grammatical accuracy (using Duolingo). The activities are quick to do + focus them on a range of grammar and sentence structure exercises.

TASK 2Cultural awareness (- exposure to Spanish language music and culture). The Bomba Estero song “Soy yo” has a great video and message.

TASK 3Vocabulary development + conceptual awareness (- the how and why of things). Hopefully this gets them to engage with authentic texts but in a gradual, step by step way.
