Curriculum topics

Term 5

We love to be fun and creative in Maple class. For more information about our class curriculum, please see our long term plan below.

Term 5 has been packed with lots of brilliant learning in Maple class. We have been learning about electricity in science, and have tested a range of materials to find out which are good electrical conductors and which are good electrical insulators.

In history we have been learning about why people settled in Westwood. We have used maps and books to find out about the past and have looked at photos of buildings from the past and compared them with modern day buildings to see how the village has changed.


In English we have been reading about Nikola Tesla and have been learning to use a range of conjunctions like ‘because’, ‘although’ and ‘however’ to improve our writing. I maths we have been learning to read analogue clocks and work out time durations.


The year 4s enjoyed their charterhouse residential. It was amazing to see everyone being enthusiastic and brave by having a go at new things.




Term 4

This term we have been learning about light in our science lessons. We enjoyed putting up the dark tent and testing whether objects were transparent, translucent, or opaque.

In our English we have written descriptive settings. Some of us wrote our descriptions based on our book, ‘The Last bear’ by Hannah Gold, and others of us decided to change the setting from the arctic to somewhere else. On world book day we enjoyed creating our own potato characters and wrote stories based either on our potato character or on the character we came dressed as! We created a potato town for our characters!

This term we have been learning about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. We loved our visit to Stonehenge and have created our own visitor guides to the site.




In Art we have created our own Stone Age paintings, trying to put across a Stone Age message. We enjoyed painting with sticks, leaves and feathers!


In DT we enjoyed stewing some different fruits to create our own fruit mixes. We enjoyed tasting these and using them to paint with!



Term 2

Term 2 has been lots of fun! We have enjoyed our topic on dragons, which has led to us doing lots of creative things in art and DT. In our DT we designed our own dragon traps. They had to appeal to dragons in order to lure them in.

In our English we focused on using expanded noun phrases to create some amazing dragon descriptions.

In art we learnt to create the secondary colours using the primary colours and then we drew our own colourful dragon eyes. We then transformed our amazing dragon eyes into 3D using clay.
