NOTICIAS FROM THE SPANISH CLASSROOM

NOTICIAS FROM THE SPANISH CLASSROOM

Hola a todos,

What a fantastic time it has been in Term 3 for our Spanish Classroom. This term we welcomed back Year 2s and Year 5s. The Year 5 students have been reviewing past lessons including numbers and feelings and learning new topics including how to say their age.

¿Cuántos anos tienes? How old are you?

Tengo diez años. I am ten years old.

Foundation and Year 1s have been learning about colours using a new song Colores y Números (Colours and Numbers) by Rocaklingua.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZiNFXntWOJw

It would be a fantastic if you could play this song at home and practice some of the colours and numbers with your little ones.

Los Colores (The Colours) Los Números (Numbers)
Yellow: Amarillo One: Uno
Blue: Azul Two: Dos
Red : rojo Three: Tres
Green: Verde Four: Cuatro
Pink: Rosado/rosa Five: Cinco
White: Blanco Six: Seis
Black: Negro Seven: Siete
Purple: Morado Eight: Ocho
Brown: Café Nine: Nueve
Orange: Anarajando/naranja Ten: Diez

Other resources to reinforce the vocabulary learned in all years are:

LOTE

Take a look into the Italian room to see what the grade 6’s are doing….

Children in grade 6 have been working on a cultural inquiry where they have studied a landmark, food, famous Italian person and a choice of their own. Children then presented their work to the class. All children learnt a new fact about the Italian culture.

Check out these two videos!

The children are implementing the use of e- learning tools to enable them to present their Inquiry in a interesting way. It has also increased the engagement in children’s learning.
