Overview of Class 4 German
Language teaching supports children to develop a positive attitude towards people of other cultures and languages and fosters a human understanding through empathy. In Class 4, which is at the age of 10 in our school, children develop a new level of self-consciousness. Now is the time to individualise the content we previously learned as a group. Class 4 children also have a changing need in that they now require a strong sense of order ( this relates to their surroundings as well as their own work). Material we learned in the first 3 years helps us get to grips with now writing in a foreign language. At the end of Class 4 children should e.g. know the German alphabet, spelling of common words and names and know the genders and plural forms of common nouns.
