Spanish

In Class 4 we have a Spanish lesson every week. Each morning our chosen Spanish Ambassadors lead the class in saying the date in Spanish, they also share what the weather is like. We complete our morning register in Spanish and our afternoon register in a whole host of languages including: French, German, Italian, Polish. We are looking forward to learning even more!

Class 4 Knowledge Organisers

Knowledge organisers show the basic knowledge we want all children to learn throughout a topic. These are used in class as a tool to help children recall information. Please look at these with your child at home as well; they are a great way to find out more about what your child is learning.

Here is the knowledge organiser for our California topic this term.

Science

For the first time this year we will be using a spiral curriculum, where we will revisit our four topics across each term, building and reinforcing our learning throughout the year. Our four science topics are: Properties of Materials, Forces, Living things and Their Habitats and Earth and Space. Our knowledge organisers are shown below.
