Verbs (including tenses) and Questions
Students will learn about common verbs and how they are conjugated. They will form simple sentences and learn how to change verbs in order to talk about events which happened in the past. They will learn some common time words to help with this, such as yesterday, today and last week. Students will also learn to ask and answer questions to add to those they already know. These will include asking about hobbies, family members and physical attributes, for example ‘Do you have brown eyes?'
TV, Music and Movies
Students will learn how to describe and converse about TV programmes, music/musicians and films they like or dislike, along with giving reasons for their preferences. They will practise and apply this new knowledge in role plays, such as a group of friends deciding on a film to see or a family choosing what to watch on TV.
Around the House and at School
Students will learn common nouns for items around the home and in the classroom/at school. They will label rooms and play games to reinforce this new vocabulary. There will also be further work on the masculine/feminine aspect to French or Spanish nouns.
More on Food and Eating Out
Children will add new foods to their current vocabulary. They will play games and participate in role plays to practise the new language. Students will also further their knowledge of how to order food and in addition will learn useful phrases such as asking for the bill, complaining or complimenting the food.
Leisure Time, Sports and Time
Students will revise what they already know about telling the time. They will extend this knowledge by looking at how to talk about the duration of an activity or when an event will start and finish. Students will learn how to talk about what they do in their spare time, how to find out if someone shares their interests and how to talk about sports they like or dislike, giving reasons.
Friendships and Personalities
Students will learn how to describe physical and non-physical characteristics. They will describe their friends, give reasons for why they like their friends and play riddle and interview games to practise what they have learnt.
