Teacher: Mr A Clark
HTLA: Mrs M Haberfield
The class were incredibly focused as they worked on collage pictures which will give an environmental message. To be continued next week...
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.
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?
For our Personal, Social and Health education, this term we are exploring goals. The class have already discussed personal goals and using small steps to achieve them. This week we look at global issues and our dreams for a better world.
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.
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.
Happy Christmas Pegasus!
Well done to Erin for winning the KS2 English award for her outstanding writing and to Lucy for being an all round good egg!
Review of Learning quiz
The children love a Kahoot quiz and get very excited. Best saved for a Friday afternoon!
The class have worked hard in groups to research and produce a timeline of the war, from the assassination of Arch Duke Frank Ferdinand to the Treaty of Versailles.
Well done Willow Bowen for a well structured, moving poem about war.
Gallery of Excellence
We’ve updated the Pegasus Gallery of Excellence with some beautiful silhouette pictures the children created using a blended colour wash background and black paint.
Pegasus and Sputnik children enjoy their weekly Wednesday afternoon sharing a book with their other year group partner. This week they read a little and shared what had happened in their books since last week.
Pegasus explored the impact of online bullying and created posters based on the Stop Speak Support code. They created some great posters that share the message clearly.
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.
The kit of a World War One soldier.
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.
Last day of term and Pegasus still working hard!
The children have been learning about balancing, rolling and vaulting. They developed routines to show their skills.
The Lost Words
We studied the poetry in the book The Lost Words and based artwork and handwriting on the poem, Kingfisher.
