At the UKLingua conference this weekend, amongst the other goodies in my goodybags (yes, plural!) was this leaflet about Salamanca. Now, at the moment I am teaching the unit 'Then and Now' to Year 6 Spanish for the 5th time. We finish the unit with a piece of independent work which depicts and describes a town in the past and the same town in the present. I haven't yet found a way that I really like of presenting this work. So I am going to try a version of this leaflet this year and see how it turns out.
We're going to make it with one sheet on A4. I'll probably use card as paper always gets a bit fragile with all the felt-tipping. If you want to use A3 paper, double the initial measurement and all subsequent steps will be the same. You will need a very long ruler though!
|1. With your A4 paper landscape, measure 8cm down from the top right corner.|
|2. Draw a line with a long ruler to join your 8cm mark and the top left corner.|
|3. Cut off the small triangle.|
|4. Fold the paper in half along the long, bottom edge.|
|5. Fold the shorter edge back in to the centre.|
|6. Turn it over and fold the long edge back in to the centre.|
7. Turn it back over and you'll see your finished leaflet.
