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), Mrs Keal and Mr Watkins (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: Autumn Term 2

This half term, we are learning all about robots. For our hook day we will be making Scribblebots, Racing Brushes and robotic hands out of card.

In Science, we will begin by exploring how light travels and how shadows are formed. Afterwards, we will be developing our circuit building skills and testing different variables.

In English, we will be using the story The Lost Thing by Shaun Tan. This funny story is all about a person who finds a robotic looking lost thing on the beach. We will be using the animation of the story to bring the story to life and will use this to build on our grammar skills. 

Taking inspiration from the work of Eric Joyner, we will be designing junk model robots then photographing them in interesting situations and creating some robot inspired artwork. In Jigsaw (PSHE), our topic is Celebrating Difference. We will be celebrating different cultures and consider the importance of being kind to everyone, no matter where they are from.
