Monday 1st June

Welcome back Pegasus!  

 

It's term 6 and the final 7 weeks of what has ended up being a very strange year.  I hope you all managed to have a nice half term break and enjoyed the fantastic weather.

 

Finally, some children have returned to Uphill and we are adjusting to teaching very small groups as best we can whilst maintaining social distancing and keeping everyone safe.  It's a challenge but it's going to be okay.

 

I'm very sorry that we can not have everybody at school yet but I hope you will throw yourselves back into home learning and do as well as you were doing before the half term break.

 

Although I am now teaching pod Pegasus, Mrs Tinker will be checking the Year 5/6 email so if you have any questions please send them in and she will respond.  I will check for any photos you send in and add them to the Pegasus page in the evenings -  so please keep them coming.

 

Good luck

 

Mr Clark

The Big Pit trip
The children had a great time on our visit to the Bit Pit in Wales. It is an amazing place which gives a great idea of what coal mining was like over the years. Although they have learnt how bad coal is for the environment, the children discovered that people didn’t always know this and that coal played a crucial role in the industrial revolution and the development of our country.
Picture 1
Natural Resources
The children read up on the 11 most commonly used natural resources and how they are used. Then they presented the key information to their classmates.
Are they all what you would expect?

Our new project - Have We Made the World a Better Place?
Pegasus have really enjoyed getting into this project. It is so topical and we are able to discuss things that are coming up in the news almost every day.

Welcome back

We welcome everybody back to Term 3 after a long, (and mainly restful) Christmas break.

 

We are excited about starting our new project, ‘Have We Made the World a Better Place’ during which we will learn all about climate change and renewable and non-renewable resources, as well as migration and refugees.

Term 2
Happy Christmas

Remembrance Day 2019

 

Pegasus listened to the Michael Morpurgo story, Poppy Field and learned about the origins of the Royal British Legion poppy. They then published the poem Flanders Fields in their best handwriting.

Ex-Uphill pupil, Josh Cottrell brought in his collection of WW1 soldier’s kit and the children found out exactly how heavy and basic some of the equipment was.
