Are you looking for new ways of practising the GCSE writing with your pupils? You may have already done this… But I wanted to share this idea with you, just in case!
Something I am doing with my Y11 Spanish group almost every week is to create some bullet points on all the different topics and in different tenses. I use this as a starter; I give all the students a set of random bullet points (some of them repeated on purpose so that they see them all the time and familiarise with them quicker). They have to translate them and, later on, they have to classify them in present, past, conditional and future.
They get really into it! It is very useful for them and it is quite easy to link this to a short writing afterwards.
If you would like to have some of the bullet points I have created, please send me a message and I will be more than happy to share them with you in order to save you some time 🙂
Also, it is a resource that you can use several times, as you can use the same bullet points more than once and keep adding to them! The more the students see them, the best! We just don’t want them to miss a bullet!!!!!!
If you haven’t done this activity yet, it is worth giving it a try! The GCSE writing is not as hard when your students know what to expect!
