Yr 5 Spanish Autumn Term

There is a PowerPoint resource for each lesson. In Yr 5 we anticipate that pupils will have a weekly lesson of between 45 - 60 minutes. Equally important, however, are the few minutes spent every day re-capping the language learnt each week. This is done with the Class 5 teacher. Suggestions for different activities are being added to this Scheme of Work and will appear soon.

Teachers adapt these master copies to suit their classes but ensure that they cover the language and skills as shown on the Scheme of Work. Where other resources are also used, these are listed in the resources column.
