With the end of the year coming up, we’ve begun learning how to say in Spanish the various activities well be doing throughout the summer holidays. This topic has been really exciting since it reminds us that we’ve nearly completed Grade 4! We look forward to learning how to say these in activities in Spanish through the use of engaging and competitive games.
‘I’ve enjoyed saying in Spanish what we’re going to be doing throughout the summer holidays’ – Lily (4B)
‘I’ve enjoyed playing the house points game in Spanish’ – Leen (4B)
In Spanish for Term 3, we Grade 4s have started revising all the words and phrases that we’ve learnt throughout the year. This involved some verbal games, as well as a competitive school-house game that we really got into. After that, since our pronunciation was spot on, we had a spelling test, which all of us did well on too. Our learning has been so good this year we can’t wait for the start of the new unit next week!
‘I loved the house-point game because we got to work in our house colour groups as a team’ –Adele (4B)
‘I liked the game when we all got together on the floor’ –Alana (4B)
Since we learnt how to describe ourselves in Term 2, we have started Term 3 learning how to describe other things and objects, such as a variety of animals and objects found in playgrounds. We’ve also enjoyed the freedom of choosing which specific Spanish words we learn throughout each lesson since this makes us more engaged in our Spanish learning!
‘I’ve learnt how to say different zoo animals in Spanish’ – Fabyan (3F)
‘I love using Kahoots in Spanish’ – Charli (3F)
In Spanish for Term 2, we Grade 4s have started learning about all the items and objects we find in our homes. We have really enjoyed browsing through pictures and videos of cool-looking houses and identifying the number and colour of the specific house items that we are learning, thus using our knowledge of numbers and colours so we do not lose it! We look forward to learning these household items really well so that we can start playing our favourite learning games.

‘I enjoyed labelling a house in Spanish and I enjoyed playing some memory games on Rockalingua’ – Leen (4B)
In Spanish for Term 2, we Grade 3s have started learning the words that used to describe ourselves physically and our personal qualities. We have had fun describing ourselves, both on the outside and inside. We now look forward to learning and identifying which key qualities we should have to help us manage successfully a situation in which Survival (the Term 2 CBL topic) is crucial!
‘In Spanish we do really fun stuff like use Rockalingua and use our iPads to improve our Spanish vocabulary’ – Leyla (3F)
‘In Spanish, we are learning about how to say stuff about ourselves and our qualities, as well as write that information down in sentences’ – Ekam (3F)
‘Something that I have enjoyed in Spanish is writing down the physical descriptions of our appearance and also our personal qualities’ – Sophie (3F)
For the next four weeks we will be participating in the Sporting Schools Tennis Program. We will be walking to the Hume Tennis & Community Centre at the start of our PE lessons where coach James and Daniel are teaching us new skills including forehands, volleys, serves and how to score our own games.
