My name is Miss Wagstaff and I am the class teacher for Pegasus Class.
I am extremely excited to be part of the Kimberley team and look forward to a great year.
Last term we carried out a Christmas experiment where the children tested which liquid would dissolve a candy cane the quickest. The children had a lot of fun applying their scientific enquiry skills to a festive activity!
Autumn Term summed up by Nella and Honei ...
The first term as a year 6 was one to remember. We had our first ever residential after only a week of being back at school; this was a trip to Kingswood, Norfolk. It was so much fun and we did a wide range of fun, learning activities.
In English, we started our Talk for Writing scheme, which helps us a lot with our progress in writing and makes it more enjoyable to be yourself and be creative. Also, we wrote a warning story which was linked to our Science topic, Electricity.
In Maths, we secured our learning on all four of the operations, which are addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We have also focused on our arithmetic weekly to help us boost our scores for SATS, in May.
In our history work this term, our topic was A Tale of Three Villages. We learnt about how Britain became an island during the of end of the Ice Age. We also learnt about the reign of William the Conqueror.
Each week, we mainly focused on our thought of the week; We also expanded on this as part of our P4C time.
We continued our swimming lessons at the Kimberley Leisure Centre at the beginning of November, in preparation for the swimming gala which is on the 14th of February.
A highlight of Autumn term was our Children in Need fundraiser event, which we combined into our PE and music sessions. Many locals came to enjoy our performance at Sainsburys, including a local MP and news reporters from the BBC.
Overall, a great first term in Pegasus Class.
Here is the display of our biographies on William the Conqueror for our cross curricular writing.
