Introduction to a café role play about a very odd waiter by introducing pupils to 4 normal items together with 4 silly items in picture form. Say each normal item in Spanish without showing picture, and as pupils say its meaning, place it on the board. Do the same for each silly item. Pupils’ previous knowledge of foods/drinks will help them to say meaning.
Number all the pictures on the board 1-8 and pupils write a-h on mini whiteboards. Hold up a word card and say ‘a’. Pupils write the number of the matching picture next to ‘a’ on their boards.
Prepare pupils for seeing role play by asking for polite words that would be used in a conversation between a waiter and a customer, e.g. buenos días, señor, señora, señorita, gracias, por favor, de nada, adiós. Teach other key words and phrases as in ‘New Learning’ section.
Pupils practise asking and saying what they want after teacher models with puppet: ¿Qué desea? Quiero un bocadillo de queso, por favor. Tell pupils they are using the formal ‘you’ in the question.
Before showing the power point of role play (down to slide 12), ask pupils what they think it will be about. If no one guesses correctly, ask again at end of presentation. (It is about a crazy waiter who gets a customer’s order mixed up). Ask why the customer questions the price at the end.
Daily practice – practise above question and answer with partner
