Weston St Mary CE Primary School - Coming together as one

Oaks Class

Welcome back to our second half term! I would like to say another huge thank you to you all for the time and effort spent on your school projects for our new topic The Arctic; they look amazing!

Our new topic this half term is The Arctic. We will be learning about the geographical features about the Arctic and making comparisons about The Arctic and where we live. We will also be looking at and comparing Antarctica and the time zones of these countries. To finish off our topic we will be creating a class Arctic background using weaving and stitching!

The children have worked extremely hard so far this year and I know they will continue to do so!

Homework will now be given out on a Friday afternoon and returned to school every Wednesday.

You can find out more in our Class Newsletter.

A visit to the South Holland Centre

As part of the START project, our year 3 and 4 pupils visited the South Holland Centre to watch Tales of Birbal. The pupils were very excited and many said it was their first trip to the theatre. The children particularly enjoyed the chance to ask the actors questions at the end of the performance.

Egyptian Pots

The Oaks have been super busy creating their own Egyptian pots. We looked at how the Egyptians mummified other Egyptians and found out that they keep organs in special pots so we created our own using clay. They look fabulous!

Start Workshop

The Year 3 and 4 children have had fun taking part in the START workshop. They took part in lots of acting activities and made their own crows from recycled materials. We are excited to see the crows in The Tales of Birbal show!

Earth and Space

The Year 5 and 6 children have been looking at Earth and Space in Science. We have been finding out about how the Earth orbits the Sun whilst spinning on its axis and how the Moon orbits the Earth. The children created models on this. They look great!
