‘Ayuda’ Activities


Ayuda was a magazine produced by the children in the hostel. Imagine that you are the editor of a magazine for your friends. What do you think they would like to read about?

  • Design the front cover


Have a look at some of the photographs of the magazine pages. You will see that it is all in Spanish.

  • Use an online translator to work out some of the text? Maybe you know some Spanish words already.
  • Find out what a ‘gelatine pad’ is?


Make a magazine called ‘Bienvenida’ for someone of your own age. That means welcome in Spanish.

  • Include articles to make someone new to your school or neighbourhood feel at home.
  • Introduce them to things to do and places to go.
  • Include pictures
