Howden School

Spanish

All pupils have a copy of the appropriate SNAP Revision sheet for their year on Teams. This is the core vocabulary for the year which we expect all pupils to understand and use accurately.  

Homework will mostly consist of pre-learning of vocabulary on www.vocabexpress.com. Pupils have their own logon details for this. After about 3 months blocks of vocabulary turn orange and then red, this indicates that blocks need to be repeated. This can be done at any time. Pupils needing access to the Internet can come to Room 38 Tuesday to Friday lunchtimes. If pupils have a target grade of 6+ they CERTAINLY should be gaining at least 3000 points on Vocab Express. 

In year 11 pupils also have a speaking booklet for Spanish with 40 questions and answers to be learnt. If this is started in September pupils will need to learn 1-2 new ones a week (in addition to recapping those from previous weeks) as this is the basis of the speaking exam, which usually takes place in April.
