Pizzas - lesson 1

A pizza in Spanish is una pizza.

And pizzas in Spanish are las pizzas.

The pizzas in the photos are ones I made!

¿Te gustan las pizzas? -  Do you like pizzas?

If you like pizzas, then you would say in Spanish:
Me gustan las pizzas

That's how the Spanish say I like pizzas.

If you don't like pizzas then, you would say No me gustan las pizzas.

Did you notice the upside down quesiton mark before the question in Spanish?  The Spanish always write an upside down question mark at the beginning of their sentences, and end with a question mark as we would write at the end of a sentence written in English.  So they have two question marks in their written sentences!

Today I would like you to design a poster about pizzas!  On a piece of paper or in a notebook, at the top write the question in Spanish:

¿Te gustan las pizzas?

Then draw some pizzas

Then at the bottom of the page write in Spanish if you like pizzas.  I like pizzas, so I would write Me gustan las pizzas. 

Here is an example of what your poster could look like.  You can decorate your poster with hearts or smiley faces if you want, to show you like pizzas!

Pizzas - lesson 2

Today we are going to learn how to say some pizza topping in Spanish!

Have a look at how the Spanish say the following four toppings:

el tomate - the tomato

el pimiento - the pepper

la cebolla - the onion

(cebolla sounds a bit like "theb-oya")

el champiñon - the mushroom

(champiñon sounds a bit like "champinyon")

If you want to check what any of the words sound like, you can check this in google.  For example, to check how la cebolla sounds, type in the google search bar "the onion in Spanish" and click on the sound icon under la cebolla.

Can you unscramble the following words?:

1) el    m t o e t a

2) la   b o c a y e

3) el   n e i t o m i p

4) el   h n o ñ m p i c a

Answers will be given in pizzas lesson 3!

Try and learn these four words, and in pizza lesson 3 there will be a quiz to see how many of the words you can remember!

There are lots of great ways to learn new words. One way is to practise writing these words in an exercise book or on a piece of paper. If you want to you can use different colours! I always enjoyed trying out different coloured pens or pencils when I was young and was learning new words by practising writing them down.  It's fun!

Pizzas - lesson 4

Today there are two new words to learn.    Have a look at the picture below.  Which are are the two new words?

Could you work out which the two new words are? 

The two new words are:

la carne - the meat             

 el maíz - the sweetcorn   (el maíz sounds a bit like "el may-ith")

In Spanish, some words are masculine words (boy words) and some words are female words (feminine words).  It doesn't mean that the words are either for boys or for girls.  What it is important to note though is that whether the word is feminine or masculin will effect which word for "the" is used.  

Have you noticed that some of the words start with el, and some start with la?

El is the masculine (boy) way of saying the, when there is just one thing.

La is the feminine (girl) way of saying the, when there is just one thing.

Today's challenge is for you to make a list of all the masculine words, and all the feminine words.   I've done the first couple for you:

Masculin words

el queso

el pimiento

Feminine  words

la pizza

The answers will be given in pizza lesson 5!

Today we are going to learn the Spanish for 4 more ingredients you may use on pizzas!  Here are today's new words:

el queso - the cheese.   It sounds a bit like "el Keso"

la salsa de tomate - the tomato sauce

el pollo - the chicken.   It sounds a bit like "el poyo"

la piña - the pineapple.   It sounds a bit like "la pin-ya"

To practise these words, and the words you learnt yesterday why don't you draw a pizza and draw on the topping you would like from the words you have learnt so far.  Remember to write the Spanish words by your pizza toppings!

Then try and learn the new words from today's lesson for the quiz in pizza lesson 4!

Another useful word to learn when we are learning about pizza toppings is el jamón which means ham.  In Spain there are two main types.   

El jamón de York is boiled ham, like our English ham.

El jamón Serrano is "mountain" ham which has been smoked rather than boiled or oven cooked.

If you could ask for a pizza, what pizza toppings would you like? 

Here is a list of ingredients for my favourite pizza:

la salsa de tomate

el queso

el jamón de York

la piña

Sometimes though, I like to swap la piña for los champinones. 

(Los champinones are mushrooms, whereas el champinón is just one mushroom.)

Write a list of the ingredients you would like on a pizza! 

Answers from today's quiz:

1) el champinón

2) el pollo

3) la piña

4) el maíz

5) el queso
