Spanish at home

spanish¡Hola! 

As promised here are some ideas of how you can carry on your Spanish learning at home. It's lovely to hear that some of you have already been doing some Spanish! ¡Bien hecho Ruby y Sophie!

You can send anything you produce to your class Showbie and your teacher can pass it on to me, or you could ask an adult to tweet it to @whcps, or send it to our school enquiry email address and it'll get to me that way. 


Most of all, stay happy and safe, and keep smiling. I miss you all very much. ¡Hasta pronto!

1. Explore a map of Spain. Use your knowledge of Spanish to practice saying the names of the cities. Can you find the names of rivers, mountains, seas and other geographical features? I know Y3 are really good at this as they've just been looking at it in their geography lessons! 

Then try and find some maps IN SPANISH, for example, this one. Make a list of country names in Spanish and then add the English word next to it. If you speak another language, you could add the name in that language too. And it's not just country names that are sometimes different. On that map, can you find the name for London in Spanish? What about Moscow and Stockholm, Tokyo and Rome?

2. Where is Spanish spoken? Not just in Spain! Find out where in the world you would find Spanish speakers. Find the countries on a world map. Why do these countries speak Spanish? Can you find out how they got their names? Make a country factfile with details of famous places, people, animals, sports, physical features, important events in history, festivals...

3. Have a go at the British Council Spanish Language Challenge - click here to download. And when you’ve tried the Spanish one, you could try another language - French   Arabic   German   Welsh or Mandarin. And if you speak another language or would like to explore a different one, why not download the blank one and make your own?
