Year 4 Spanish

We will continue to study Spanish phonics in year 4 to help with reading and pronouncing Spanish really well. 

Autumn term 1

We are remembering the questions we learnt in year 3 to introduce ourselves. 

Year 4 are learning numbers 11-20. We have completed sums in Spanish, what a challenge!


In normal times. we start each lesson actively by learning the hula. Watch the video at


We are moving on to learning the months of the year and about a festival that happens in each of the months. There are some crazy festivals in Spain, including La Tomatina in Buñol, Valencia, in which everyone throws tomatoes at each other! Here they are ready to start.

We are learning the words for seasons: la primavera, el verano, el otoño, el invierno (spring, summer, autumn, winter). Watch this video on youtube to hear the seasons, and also to pick out some weather phrases:

We will ask "When is your birthday?" and answer in a full sentence. We may even be able to say someone else's birthday. We will sing "Happy Birthday" in Spanish. Join in here:

In 2020, we finished the autumn term by creating a character and writing a brilliant introduction on them, including name, age, birthday, how we feel and some questions. Here is our work:

Here are some of the characters having a conversation!

Spring term 1


We are learning shapes in Spanish and focusing on masculine and feminine nouns. We are also describing the colour of each shape and remembering that in Spanish, the adjective goes after the noun: un/una + shape + colour.

We are learning prepositions ready to understand descriptions of paintings. We will play Simon Says in Spanish and act out: up, down, left, right, in the centre - arriba, abajo, a la izquierda, a la derecha, en el centro. We should create a shape picture by following Spanish instructions.


We are finding out about a Spanish artist and will read an extended Spanish description in order to recreate a painting by Joan Miró. How accurate will the results be this year? The original sold for £23 million a few years ago! How much could our work be worth? What do you think of the children's efforts below?

Before the Easter break, we are looking at a traditional Spanish Easter cake recipe in Spanish. We found out the ingredients and looked for Spanish instruction verbs in the dictionary. The recipe is in the powerpoint below. We were lucky enough to make it in class with our class teachers during our cultural week. Watch the video of how to make these delicious buns on YouTube: 

Spring Term 2


We are finding out about the artist Salvador Dali. There will be an art gallery in the classroom, and a discussion of his work. We will write a fact file about him in Spanish.


We will learn about techniques in Spanish to use with colouring pencils. We will create bright, colourful butterflies. Here are some examples of our work in 2019:


We will use different sketching techniques to create a background image for a birthday card. We will say the techniques in Spanish. We will add our butterfly for a surreal effect. We will write our cards in Spanish. Here are some examples from year 4 in 2020, completed hurriedly before the schools were closed early. A valient effort by the children!:




We are finding out about a traditional Easter cake from Spain. We worked out what ingredients are needed and how to make the cake. Then we were able to watch the video of the cake being made and understand how it is made.


Open the powerpoint for more information.

Spring term 2


We are completing a unit on Spanish geography and finding out about places in major cities. We are learning nouns for places in town, and adjectives to describe them. 


We will write a short text to describe a town in Spain - it could be Madrid, Barcelona, Santander, Valencia, La Coruña or Sevilla. It will say in Spanish: "In my town there is...". We will make a triarama, which turns into a triangle stand up town. From year 4 2019, these children wrote great Spanish and presented their town correctly and neatly. Some of their work is on display in school. 

Summer term 2


We will learn parts of the body and dance: Head, shoulders, knees and toes in Spanish. We will say what hurts and give some silly solutions to make us feel better!
