1 Grammar from the startNovember 2012Dr Rachel Hawkes
2 Grammar: skill or knowledge? IntroductionThis is not a dichotomy I admit> It is meant to hint at doing rather than just knowing, action rather than theory, be active rather than passiveSkill is often thought of as the ability to do something, often resulting from sustained practice and commitmentOf course doing something well requires the knowledge ‘how’ not just the knowledge ‘that’, so knowledge is fully implicated in skill development and skill development requires knowledge.They must combine though. One without the other is not effective. Knowing verb endings but never using them to making meaning for example, will mean that they fossilize – the knowledge may be retained even in long-term memory but without serving any useful purpose, if cut off from meaning making. Equally you can practise and practise sentences and get good at them, but if you don’t understand how to put together your own new sentences, the incentive to use language will be eroded. All human beings want to make their own meanings.
3 Key language skills – knowing how 1 Sound/meaning2 Visual/meaningMemory3 Spelling (core language words only)1 repeat correctly4 (improved) speed of recallPronunciation2 retain pronunciation1 say whole sentences from visual prompts3 pronounce accurately from textInfer/guess meaning from key words/cognates and known languageSentence building2 adapt sentences to make new meaningsComprehension3 Use key verbs to build new sentences
4 Skills and knowledge both Present tense verb endings OR the relationship between an infinitive verb, pronouns and endings when describing current actionsHow to pronounce 10 animals OR how to pronounce the key sounds of the language and how these are writtenA vocabulary of 200 nouns OR a vocabulary of 30 verbs, the pronouns, conjugations of key irregular verbs, opinion phrases, expressions of time and frequency, key past and future constructions and essential modals

11 las vocalesPupils will learn how to pronounce the vowel sounds in Spanish. ‘las vocales’ = the vowels.Click on words to hear them pronounced in this presentation.By the end of this lesson pupils should be able to attempt to fill the vowels into Spanish words they hear pronounced.
12 Link to the full resource on TESAudiovisual presentation of the ‘vocales’ (vowels) song. (Click on the grey square to activate.) Pupils should listen to this and begin to join in. It’s important that pupils are able to accurately pronounce the vowels as these are constant in Spanish pronunciation.Full resource created by Leepy on TES, incorporating phonics by Rachel Hawkes.
13 aPupils should pronounce the vowel first and then the word, learning to trust that producing the same vowel sound will allow them to pronounce the word accurately. Click on vowel and the written word to hear them pronounced. It is helpful to do an action as the word is pronounced to give pupils a physical trigger/hook to remember the word later. Click on the video box (top left) to see a suggested action which beats out the number of syllables the word contains. This should also encourage pupils to divide words into syllables as a coping mechanism in their learning. araña = spideraraña

17 uInstructions as per slide 3. universo = universeuniverso
18 aeiouPointing at the vowels and asking pupils to produce them out of sequence, building up speed, forces pupils to produce the sounds quickly, accurately and automatically.
19 ba be bi bo bu fa fe fi fo fu la le li lo lu ma me mi mo mu Pupils should imagine how these syllable sounds will be pronounced in Spanish (by slotting in the vowel sounds they already know). These is designed to reinforce the fact that their knowledge of English will at times be helpful in their Spanish learning. The b, f, l, m, p, t are all pronounced as they are in English.pa pe pi po puta te ti to tu

25 For the full phonics cards resource, created by Leepy, go to:
26 niño niña araña piña señor señora España You can project these slides on the board and run through pronunciation & meaning first if you feel this will benefit the pupils & give them more confidence. These slides are designed as cards which will (when photocopied double-sided and cut up) have the phonic on one side and a corresponding word & picture on the other. Pupils should pronounce the phonic first and then incorporate it into their pronunciation of the word on the other side, recognising the meaning in English at the same time. Pupils could play snap/happy families etc. by using the cards picture-side up, recognising when the phonic is the same and checking on the other side of the card.The vocabulary translates as: Young boy, young girl, spider, pineappleMan, woman, Spain, birthdayseñorseñoraEspañacumpleaños

31 Full lesson resource by Leepy on TES.Our first real song! The lyrics are all about words and syllables – tuneful & educational It reinforces the idea of breaking words down into syllables, highlighting words or one, two, three or more syllables.Singing is a great way to get the pupils to practise en masse, get comfortable with speaking a little faster, not worry about forgetting the odd word or two, and to have fun. I’ve added the graphics to support understanding and make learning more explicit.

36 Progression: a Y3 sequence Year 3 Term 1 Year 3 pupils start with the phonics, learning the vowels first and then other key sounds. They practise these using a variety of activities. They read rhyming stories, sing songs, practise tongue twisters, play games and have further opportunities to make the sound-written link by listening to words and anticipating their spelling. Year 3 Term 2 In this term pupils learn some nouns (pencil case and classroom items). They are made aware of gender through colour coding. They use the verb forms ‘tengo – I have’, ‘es – it is’ and implicitly encountered the negative forms of these.
37 Year 3 Term 3 The theme is animals and colours Year 3 Term 3 The theme is animals and colours. The linguistic focus is gender, articles (definite & indefinite), plurals and adjectives (position & basic agreement). The grammatical concepts are all based embedded in a core vocabulary of 9 animal nouns and 6 colours so nothing so becomes too difficult. The key verbs are ‘es’ (he/she/it is), ‘son’ (they are), hay (there is/are). The negative is revisited and there is also a subtle introduction to ‘también’ (also/too/as well), ‘pero’ (but). Pupils are encouraged at all times to strive to work things out for themselves, work in pairs and small groups sharing knowledge, and to speak aloud when possible – thereby building confidence. Pronunciation, memory, pattern finding, sentence building, autonomy, performance and creativity are the concepts at the heart of these resources.
38 The sounds of French Par exemple: OU douze les couleurs rouge Almost all the French phonemes are contained in the French words for animals, colours and the numbers 1-20.Par exemple: OUdouzeles couleursrougeune souris

40 En France on aime les bonbons! On a des grands bonbons. Nous aimons les bonbons!Allons et trouvons des bonbons!En France on porte des pantalons!On porte des grands pantalons.Nous aimons les pantalons .Allons et trouvons les pantalons!
41 Working with FrenchIn groups of two/three, brainstorm the key language you would want to cover in Y3.What are the key phonic sounds in them?Categorise by key phonic link.Think of any songs, rhymes, tongue twisters that you could use to practise those sounds.Would you want to choose a set of key phonics to teach, as for Spanish, or with French is it better to highlight the key sounds one by one as you meet them?
