UNIT SUMMARY
In this unit pupils review and extend their knowledge of concepts relating to
the Universe, looking at the elements that make up the Solar System; how
the Earth and the Moon move; as well as orientation.

VALUES AND ATTITUDES


In this unit your pupils will learn to appreciate how vast the Universe is and
how relatively small our solar system is. Throughout the unit, try to
encourage pupils to think about:

Pupils begin by refreshing what they learned in Primary 1, i.e. basic concepts
about the Sun, Moon, stars and planets, and are introduced to the eight
planets of the Solar System by means of a classification table. They then go
on to extend upon the introduction of the planets with a double-page
spread. At the same time, they are introduced to three "layers of the Earth":
the atmosphere, hydrosphere and geosphere.

how Earth is only one small part of the Solar System and the Universe.
how are planet is unique because of the atmosphere and hydrosphere.
how the light and heat emitted by the Sun are essential to life on Earth.

This is followed by a more in-depth explanation of the two movements of


the Earth (rotation and revolution), with greater detail about day, night and
the seasons. The last two content pages deal with the movement of the
Moon and how moon phases are produced, as well as an introduction to
orientation concepts.

Think about it
The Think about it page in this unit focuses on how to stay safe in the sun.
The students will think about simple ways of protecting ourselves in the sun
by looking at and interpreting pictures. Encourage pupils to think about how
the Sun is important to us (as a source of vitamin D), but how it can be
harmful to us at the same time. Maybe some of your students have
experienced sunburn at some point in their lives this can be used as a
starting point for the activity.

There is some new vocabulary in this unit, but pupils will be familiar with the
majority of the terms used. Many pupils will be familiar with the planets,
although probably in Spanish. This is one of the reasons that this unit is a

UNIT SUMMARY

VALUES AND ATTITUDES

In this unit pupils review and extend their knowledge of concepts relating to
air and weather, identifying the gases that make up air, the layers of the
atmosphere, basic weather concepts, as well as the main causes of air
pollution.

In this unit your pupils will learn to appreciate the air in our atmosphere as
an essential element for life on Earth. Throughout the unit, try to encourage
pupils to think about:
how each layer of the atmosphere protects our planet and all the living
things on Earth.
how air pollution can have harmful effects for both the atmosphere and
for all living things.
how everyone can participate in daily activities that can reduce or prevent
air pollution.

Pupils begin by refreshing what they learned in Primary 1, i.e. basic concepts
about weather. They are introduced to the different instruments used to
measure weather and learn how to use charts to show data about
temperature and rainfall. They then go on to explore the combination of
gases that make up the air around us and study three of the layers of the
atmosphere that surround the Earth: the troposphere, stratosphere and
mesosphere.

Think about it

This is followed by a double-page spread that provides a more in-depth


explanation of weather concepts including temperature, humidity, wind and
precipitation. The last two content pages deal with some of the major
causes of air pollution and strategies to reduce or prevent pollution in our
daily lives.

The Think about it page in this unit focuses on extreme weather. The pupils
read about different examples of extreme weather and think about the
dangerous effects of each one. Encourage pupils to discuss possible ways to
be prepared, including the idea of making an emergency kit for their home
or classroom. Pupils can find out about organisations that help people who
have been affected by extreme weather and learn what they themselves can
do to help.

There is more science vocabulary in this unit, but pupils will be familiar with
many of the words related to weather. This unit also provides several
opportunities for pupils to develop scientific skills including observation,
data collection, description, and measurement.

UNIT SUMMARY
In this unit pupils will further their study of one of the Earths most
important natural resources: water. Building on the basic concepts of water
introduced to pupils in Primary 1 and 2, the unit deals with the Earths
hydrosphere in greater detail, including the presence of water on the Earths
surface, underground and in the air.

VALUES AND ATTITUDES


In this unit your pupils will learn to appreciate water as an essential element
for life on Earth. Throughout the unit, try to encourage pupils to think
about:

Pupils begin by refreshing what they know about the bodies of water on
Earth and the three states in which it appears: liquid, solid and gas. Pupils
are then introduced to the main bodies of water in Spain and where they
are located. They go on to examine the different types of bodies of water on
the Earth's surface, before going underground to study groundwater in
aquifers.

the importance of water and how plants, animals, and people cannot
survive without it
how the water cycle continuously recycles the water in our atmosphere
how everyone can participate in conserving the limited amount of fresh
water on Earth.

The processes by which water changes state (freezing, melting, evaporation


and condensation) are explained and then contextualised as they occur in
the water cycle. The last two content pages focus on the limited supply of
fresh water on Earth and how wastewater is treated and reused.

Think about it
The Think about it page in this unit focuses on water conservation. Pupils
will read about the limited amount of clean water we have available to us
and learn about some helpful water-saving tips. Encourage pupils to reflect
on how they use water every day and what they can do to conserve water.
Pupils can make a list of water-saving activities they can try at home, for
example: having shorter showers, turning off the tap when they brush their
teeth, etc. Pupils with the Activity Book can find this activity on page 18.

The new vocabulary in this unit builds on the basic vocabulary pupils have
studied at previous levels and concepts are explained with more detail. In
this unit pupils will continue to develop scientific skills, such as data

UNIT SUMMARY

VALUES AND ATTITUDES

In this unit pupils will review and extend their knowledge of geographical
concepts and terms relating to the Earth's surface, such as the continents,
oceans and seas; inland and coastal landscapes, including at natural and
man-made features; as well as notable landforms found on the Iberian
Peninsula.

The new vocabulary in this unit builds on the basic vocabulary pupils have
studied at previous levels about landscapes. Concepts are also explained in
greater detail. In this unit pupils will continue to develop scientific skills
including observation, description and map skills.
In this unit your pupils will learn that landscapes are being constantly
altered by humans and come to appreciate the importance of having a
positive impact on their local landscape. Throughout the unit, encourage
pupils to think about:

Pupils begin by refreshing what they know about natural and man-made
features of landscapes and are made aware of the impact that humans can
have on landscapes by comparing the past and the present with an old
photograph.

the importance of protecting the natural features of landscapes


how natural events and human activities can alter landscapes
how everyone can participate in having a positive impact on their local
landscape.

On the first two content pages, pupils are introduced to the continents, the
oceans and three seas, and have to locate them on a world map. This is
followed by an in-depth description of the landforms that make up inland
and coastal landscapes. The last two content pages consolidate much of
what pupils have learned with examples of some the most well-known
landforms in Spain, with a focus on the important mountain ranges by
means of a physical map of the Iberian Peninsula.

Think about it
The Think about it page in this unit focuses on protecting landscapes. Pupils
will read about some natural events and human activities that can change
the appearance of a landscape. They will then read information presented
on a website to learn about an environmental group that organises
volunteers to pick up rubbish and protect their coastal landscapes. This
activity aims to motivate pupils to actively participate in protecting their
local landscape.

UNIT SUMMARY

VALUES AND ATTITUDES

In this unit pupils will continue to develop their awareness of the world
around them by looking at different representations of the Earth by means
of maps and globes. They will study the elements that make up different
types of maps including world maps, physical maps, political maps and
street maps.

In this unit your pupils will acquire a basic understanding of different types
of maps and learn appreciate their historical significance in exploration, as
well as their importance nowadays in learning about both the natural and
man-made features of the world around us. Throughout the unit, try to
encourage pupils to think about:

Pupils begin by refreshing what they know about maps, compasses and the
cardinal points, and explore basic elements of street maps by identifying
symbols on a street map of a local area. They are then introduced to a
second way of representing the Earth, on a globe, and compare this to how
the Earth is represented on world maps.

the importance of new technology in the process of making modern maps.


how maps and globes can open up the world to us and teach us about
other countries. as well as our own.
how different types maps show different features and are used for
specific purposes.

This is followed by a double-page spread that aims to build on pupils prior


study of maps of Spain with the larger context of Europe, by analysing and
comparing information presented on a physical and on a political map. The
last two content pages deal with maps on a local scale, demonstrating the
elements and main characteristics of street maps.

Think about it
The Think about it page in this unit develops pupils' ability to think critically
by asking them to choose a map type based on a specific need. They read
and discuss questions and match them to the corresponding map, while
simultaneously learning new information about the United Kingdom. This
activity can be used as a starting point of a larger investigation about other
countries in Europe.

The new vocabulary presented in this unit extends pupils knowledge of


technical terms and develops their ability to look more critically at different
representations of the world and their immediate surroundings. They will
also improve their skills of map-reading, observation and interpretation of
visual information.

UNIT SUMMARY

VALUES AND ATTITUDES

In this unit pupils will explore the concept of community by looking at three
of the communities they belong to: the family, the school and their local
community.

In this unit your pupils will learn that everybody has an important role in
their community and appreciate the many individuals that work together to
make their community a safe, clean and happy place to live. Throughout the
unit, try to encourage pupils to think about:

Pupils begin by refreshing what they learned in previous levels about places
and people in towns and cities, and share what they know about road safety
by completing a poster. This is followed by a focus on the special roles and
responsibilities of individual members that make up the family and school
community.

how families are unique and special


how to be a responsible member of a community
the importance of working together to make their community a better
place for everyone.

The concept of community is then broadened to include the local


community by introducing pupils to the structure and duties of local
government as well as the public services available to them. The last two
content pages reinforce the road rules that pupils must follow in order to
move around their community safely.

Think about it
The Think about it page in this unit focuses on community celebrations. The
students will read about festivals celebrated in two very different
communities from different parts of the world and reflect on the
importance of festivals in their own community. They can then make a
poster to share important local traditions that are part of one of their
community festivals.

Much of the vocabulary in this unit builds on the basic concepts the pupils
have studied about the people and places where they live. In this unit pupils
will continue to develop collaborative skills and strategies that promote
group cohesion at the same time learning the importance of individual
responsibilities.

UNIT SUMMARY

VALUES AND ATTITUDES

In this unit pupils will review and extend their knowledge of places where
people live, looking at characteristics of cities, towns and villages and
comparing urban and rural living.

In this unit your pupils will learn about the places where people live and
appreciate the differences between these areas and the communities that
live there. Throughout the unit, try to encourage pupils to think about:

Pupils begin by refreshing what they know about places around a city and
focus on the historical buildings, monuments and special features that make
up the city centre by means of a street map. They are then introduced to the
main characteristics of cities, towns and villages, distinguishing between
rural and urban populations.

how cities are continuously growing to meet the needs of the inhabitants.
how peoples interests and preferences influence where they choose to
live.
how everyone can work together to protect local monuments and public
spaces.

This is followed by an in-depth description of the three areas that make up a


large city: the city centre, modern neighbourhoods and the outskirts. Pupils
will use a city map to help them visualize the organization and the varying
characteristics of the three areas, focusing on the types of buildings, streets
and services that can be found in each one.

Think about it
The Think about it page in this unit focuses on protecting local monuments.
The students will identify important monuments around the world and read
an article about a community that believes their monuments are important
to history and culture and want to protect them. Pupils can go on to
investigate the historical and cultural importance of monuments around
Spain and in their local area.

The content specific vocabulary in this unit encourages pupils to develop


higher-level language skills and assists them as they become more mature
language users. In this unit pupils will continue to develop map skills and
spatial skills and develop communicative strategies such as paraphrasing,
giving examples and making comparisons.

UNIT SUMMARY
In this unit pupils will review and extend their knowledge of jobs in the
primary, secondary and tertiary sector and learn about the different
products and services each one provides.

UNIT SUMMARY
In this unit your pupils will learn about the important role of natural
materials in the production of food and products we use every day and
appreciate the contribution of all three sectors involved in the process.
Throughout the unit, try to encourage pupils to think about:

Pupils begin by refreshing what they know about products, where they
come from, who makes them and how they are used and are introduced to
the basic tools of common professions by means of a chart. They are then
introduced to the primary sector and learn about the workers and the
natural materials they obtain through arable farming, livestock farming,
mining and fishing.

the importance of natural materials in the production of food and


products.
how pupils need to study and learn new skills to find the right job
how workers from all sectors are involved in the process of getting us the
goods and services we need every day.

This is followed by a description of the secondary sector, discussing the


process of transforming natural materials into products while distinguishing
between craft workers and industrial workers. The last two content pages
begins by focusing on the tertiary sector and classifies workers into the
various services they provide and finishes up by consolidating much of what
the pupils have learned by exploring each stage of the production,
distribution and sale of a particular product.

Think about it
The Think about it page in this unit focuses on volunteering. The pupils will
read about the experiences of three volunteers and the different work they
do. This activity aims to encourage pupils to think about how volunteers can
help people and the environment and motivate them to find ways that they
can volunteer in their local area.

The content specific vocabulary in this unit continues to support your pupils,
as they become more mature language users. In this unit pupils will

UNIT SUMMARY

VALUES AND ATTITUDES

In this unit pupils will be introduced to the concept of history, and briefly
explore the five main periods of history: prehistory, ancient history, the
middle ages, the early modern age and the modern age.

In this unit your pupils will learn to appreciate that the study of history
enriches our life in the present and helps us make a better future, and
develop curiosity about the life of people in the past. Throughout the unit,
try to encourage pupils to think about:

Pupils begin by refreshing what they know about historical objects in a


museum and reflect on a variety of old objects and their modern equivalents
with the use of a table. They are then introduced to basic concepts of time
and how we measure it as well as the variety of historical sources we use to
learn about the past.

the importance of protecting historical sources including oral traditions,


artefacts and historical remains.
the importance of learning about the past to help us make the future
better.
how we must respect the unique traditions of cultures around the world.

This is followed by a brief description of prehistory, divided into the


Paleolithic and Neolithic periods, and a look at some of the great
accomplishments of ancient civilizations. The last two content pages touch
upon major changes, discoveries and inventions throughout the Middle
Ages, The Early Modern Age and The Modern Age.

Think about it
The Think about it page in this unit focuses on traditional food, clothes,
music, dance and crafts from different cultures around the world. The pupils
will read about special traditions and match them to the correct photo. This
activity can be used as a starting off point for pupils to reflect on their own
local traditions and find out more about some of the other traditions that
make up their historical and cultural heritage.

The content specific vocabulary in this unit helps pupils develop more
mature language skills to be able to communicate about people, places and
things in the past and present. In this unit pupils will develop skills including
placing events in chronological order, using timelines, and making use of a
variety of historical sources related to the period of time they are
investigating.
