What makes the world wonderful? 27 September
At Weston St Mary we like Big Questions! This week we talked about what makes the world wonderful and the children chose to share their ideas by working together to draw a picture of our planet and all the things that make it amazing!
Problem solving 27 September
In Maths we have been solving problems based on Noah’s Ark! The children had to work out how many animals would need to get on the ark and how much food would be needed too!
Dinosaurs at Weston!
Last week the children discovered a nest on the school field and they think it was a dinosaur nest. This week the children found some eggs! They worked together to design and make a new nest for the eggs.
Spelling is fun! 25 September
Today we have been practising this week’s spellings by making the words out of blocks.
Getting muddy! 20 September
After spending the first few weeks of term learning how to be archeologists, the children decided to conduct their own ‘Big Dig’ today.
In Maths, we have started the term by working on our counting skills! So far we have counted cubes in the sandpit, sticks from the nature area, pebbles from the water tray and pompoms using tweezers from our Finger Gym. Our Early Years pupils have been counting up to 20 and Year 1 have been learning to count up to 100. In Year 2, we have been working on counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.
