In English we will be looking at the text ’Egyptology’ by Dugald Steer, as well as the text ‘Into the Forest’ by Anthony Browne. 

Egyptology is a language-rich picture book which where we will become immersed in the world of Ancient Egyptians.

We will then create a newspaper recount, look at headlines, subtitles and paragraphs. We will be focussing on fronted adverbials, conjunctions and modifying adjectives.




In this science topic of plants, we will learn the names of different parts of the plants, and the jobs they do. They will investigate what plants need to grow well, and will present their findings to their classmates. Furthermore, they will have chance to predict what will happen in an exciting investigation into the transportation of water within plants. The class will work on identify the parts of a flower, and will explore the different stages of the life cycle of a flowering plant.

Scientist and Inventors

Our class will learn about famous scientists and inventors. They will learn about the dangers posed to living things in Madagascar, and Gerald Durrell’s conservation efforts on the island. Your child will learn about Alexander Graham Bell and his invention of the telephone, as well as modern improvements on his invention by inventors like James West and Gerhard M. Sessler. The children will look at the early uses of solar energy in homes, invented and built by Maria Telkes and Eleanor Raymond, then build their own basic solar oven. Finally, your child will find out about the invention of toothpaste, and will invent their own brand of toothpaste to compare against real brands. They will develop their scientific enquiry skills, making observations, predictions and conclusions.



World War 2

Your child will learn about the about when and why World War II began and find out about the key individuals and countries involved.

They will learn facts about each of these areas and learn strategies on how to manage them. The message of choice and consent runs through this topic and they will be encouraged to get help from trusted adults when necessary.



Maths: Maths homework will be set via Class DoJo on a Thursday to be completed by the following Wednesday. We ask for all children to continue to access Times Table Rockstars online to practice and improve instant recall of key multiplication and related division facts.

English: English homework will be set via Class DoJo on a Thursday to be completed by the following Wednesday. We ask that the children also engage frequently with Spelling Shed to practise their spellings.

Reading: At Weston, we encourage children to develop a lifelong love for reading. We ask for children to read regularly at home to adults and to themselves. Reading is fundamental to the wider academic and personal development of children and the need for children to read widely from a broad and challenging range of texts. Children will be provided with quality texts appropriate for their age and ability. Furthermore, Bug Club will regularly be updated with ebooks and accompanying comprehension tasks to help extend learning and reading skills further.
