Endeavour Class

Welcome to our class! We are all proud to be members of Team Endeavour. The staff who work in our class are Mrs Bartley (Teacher), Mr Watkins and Mr Rutland (Teaching Assistants). As a team we learn to work collaboratively by solving problems, sharing ideas, supporting each other and having open discussions with the teaching staff.  

As a team we learn to work collaboratively by solving problems, sharing ideas, supporting each other and having open discussions with the teaching staff.  In preparation for the transition to the next stage of our education, we will be developing our knowledge of the upper Key Stage 2 curriculum and learning skills in preparation for adulthood. Our curriculum model allows us to be creative, resilient and independent learners. Some of the learning experiences will be doing this year are; 'Can I Fall into Space?'; 'Robots' and 'The Maya in the Americas'. Our classroom and extensive school grounds help us toe develop many social and cultural experiences. 

We hope to go on some amazing trips, especially residential visits. We also hope to get the opportunity this year to enhance our social skills through taking part in activities with other local schools. 

We are learning: Summer Term 1

This half term we will be learning about the Magnificent Mayans. We will be developing our grammar skills in English through the story 'The Rain Player' about the ancient game of Pok a Tok. We will explore the lives of the Mayans in history, looking at how they lived and the gods they worshiped.

We will also look at aspects of Mayan art and the materials they used to create decorative items. We will be experimenting with clay, creating paper mosaics and developing our line drawing skills.

To build on our knowledge from last year, we will be using our map skills to locate Central America and using different sources of information to build up a picture of the physical features of the landscape. We will also make comparisons between the human and physical geography of Central America and the UK.

In PSHE, we will be looking at relationships. Children will have the opportunity to learn how to keep themselves well mentally and learn how to stay safe online.
