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 1 – Sentence structure /grammatical accuracy (using Duolingo). The activities are quick to do + focus them on a range of grammar and sentence structure exercises.
TASK 2 – Cultural awareness (- exposure to Spanish language music and culture). The Bomba Estero song “Soy yo” has a great video and message.
TASK 3 – Vocabulary 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.

I really like La Bomba Estereo video, the message is fantastic. The kind of activities that you mention are fab but I can’t access to the booklet.
How can I see the activities in this second booklet?
Also, I would like to ask you for some advice. I am quite new in Y12, I will have 5 hours per week and I am wondering how can I use them effectively?
Thank you in advance for your time.
