Spanish - Easter lesson 1


Today I would like you to learn these four words.



It’s worth checking how the following words sound by typing the following in the google search bar and then pressing the sound icon:


the rabbit in Spanish
(If you listen to el conejo, you will notice the j is like a k sound)


the chick in Spanish
(If you listen to el pollito, you will notice the ll is like a y sound

To practise these new words, why don't you create a poster, either on a piece of paper, or in an exercise book.   Copy each of the four Spanish words, and draw a picture of each thing.


To learn these words, you could try covering up the Spanish words and trying to remember what the Spanish words are as you look at the pictures.


Can you unscramble the folllowing words?   Which one of the Easter words are they:     


1) el    t o l l p o i   =   el pollito


2) la   e t c s a


3) el   v u o h e


4) el   j n o e c o


Write your answers on a piece of paper.....  Answers will be given tomorrow!

Yesterday I asked you to unscramble four words.  Here are the answers:

2) la   e t c s a  =  la cesta


3) el   v u o h e  =  el huevo


4) el   j n o e c o   =  el conejo

Today I would like you to learn these words:

El chocolate means chocolate.


La Pascua means Easter.  It's worth listening to how this word sounds in Spanish, as it's not obvious.  In the google search bar type in Easter in Spanish, then click on the sound icon for the Spanish word.


La tarjeta means the card.  It's worth checking how this word sounds too, as the j is like a k sound.  Type in the card in Spanish in the google search bar, and click on the sound icon for the Spanish.


La flor means the flower.

To learn these words, try copying each word five times.  When I was your age I used to like writing the words I was learning using different coloured pens or pencils.  Why don't you try doing this too?   It's fun.


Then try remembering which each word means.


Leave it about an hour.   Can you remember any of the words?  Try saying them aloud, or writing them down.   And then go back and check if you are right.  If you find it hard learning these words, choose just one word to learn at a time.  And when you remember this word, then move on to learn another word.

Can you unscramble the folllowing words?   Which one of the Easter words are they?:     


1) la   c a u a s P    =   la Pascua


2) la  r l o f  = 


3) la   j e a r t t a  = 


4) el  a t e h o c o c l  =


Write your answers on a piece of paper.....  Answers will be given tomorrow!

Spanish - Easter lesson 3


From my window today I think it looks cold outside.   Is that what it looks like from your window too?  In Spanish to say it's cold we say hace frío.   Or maybe you have nicer weather than me.  If you do, to say it's not cold in Spanish we say no hace frío.

Rabbits are one of the many things that we see around Easter, and they come in different colours, don’t they?


Here are four colours in Spanish. Do you know them?

It’s worth checking in google how the word gris is pronounced, as it sounds like the country called “Greece”. To hear the word in google, type in the google search bar “grey in Spanish” and click on the sound icon by the Spanish word.

Now we know four colours in Spanish, we can imagine we can see four rabbits from our window, and describe the rabbits using these colours.
Have a look at this picture:

In Spanish, el conejo gris means the grey rabbit, el conejo marrón means the brown rabbit, el conejo blanco means the white rabbit and el conejo negro means the black rabbit.


Did you notice that it’s not the same word order in English as in Spanish? In English, the colour goes before the word rabbit. And where does the colour go in the Spanish sentence?  Have a look at the picture.  Are the Spanish colours before or after the word el conejo?


In Spanish the colour goes AFTER the word conejo. This is because in Spanish colours go after nouns. We’ll see more about this over the next few days.


Today I would like you to design your own poster of four rabbit like the one I have done, copying the Spanish words and colouring the rabbits in the correct colours.
