X25 Spanish film faves!

Over the last two weeks X25 Spanish have been discussing TV programmes and films. Favourites, likes and dislikes, special features and Spanish directors, lots has been covered! Take a special look at Ebony’s entrance ticket, she remembered nearly EVERY film type from the session two days ago, now THAT’s building memory. Well done X25!

X25 flying start in Spanish

Our X25 GCSE Spanish students embraced the challenge of a Guiding Question framed in another language, practising their speaking skills this morning as they began our brand new Media expedition. Here they are gaining some much-needed social interaction as they ask, answer and record the answers to a survey on computer usage. A fabulous start from our young linguists!

X25 GCSE Spanish and Spanish+ Curriculum Plans

In Year 9 and beyond, and as in previous years, our X25 students will either continue to study Spanish to GCSE standard, and be entered for external examination at the end of their Year 11, or pursue a combination of supervised self-guided Spanish study and taught GCSE Citizenship, identified as “Spanish+” on their timetable. Either course will mean three hours of study per week and lead to a GCSE qualification. This follows our current curriculum model, and begins the process of personalisation of our provision for students that is then continued with choice and common mission entitlements.

We have now concluded a careful appraisal of your child’s achievements and attainment in Spanish so far, and are in a position to make a strong recommendation that they either join the GCSE Spanish group, or the Spanish+ group. You will shortly receive confirmation as to which of the two groups your child will be placed in, and Crew Leaders will be able to answer most questions that you might have.

In the event that you wish to discuss the recommendations further, or have any questions that Crew Leaders cannot answer, then please contact Mrs Sprakes in the first instance.

Year 7 and 8 Spanish work for Closure Days

Both year groups are asked to access the espanolextra website using the user name xps200 and the password estadio.

Year 7 should click on topics, then the Alphabet section and spend around 30 minutes on those activities, then go to the Numbers section, remind themselves of the numbers 1 – 31 first, then spend 30 minutes on number activities.

Year 8 should also log on, go to the topics menu and click on the Countries section, completing the first activity, then go to the countries and their flags activity. They should then click on the Home Town section and complete the first 3 tasks.
