The children will investigate reflective materials, in the context of designing a new book bag. Additionally, the children will learn that the sun’s light can be dangerous, and will create an advert for a pair of sunglasses or a sun hat that they have designed. The children will find out how shadows change when the distance between the object and light source changes.

They will learn about significant events from the period and order these chronologically on a timeline. The children will find out about the Anglo-Saxon kings who ruled during the 'Viking Age' and examine their influence and significance in British history. In addition to this, they will learn about the Anglo-Saxon justice system, explore everyday Viking life, houses, clothes and food they ate.

the consequences of this.



Maths: Maths homework will be set via Class DoJo on a Friday to be completed by the following Wednesday. It is so important to practise Times Tables Rockstars as this will really help your child with later Maths’ topics of Fractions, Perimeter, Money and Time. Our aim is to improve instant recall of key multiplication and related division facts.

English: English homework will be set via Class Dojo on a Wednesday 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 is even more crucial this term, due to the protracted absence from school. 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.
