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), Miss Bailey 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

Our first learning experience in September will be 'Crime and Punishment'. During the half term, we will be finding out about the history and development of crime and punishment. We will be investigating the history of crimes, and the sanctions used as deterrents, from the Romans through to the present day. To support our engagement with the topic and deepen our knowledge, we will be visiting the former prison at Shepton Mallet to discover its 400-year history and having a CSI Day.

We will be examining some of the structures and devices that were used as punishments and will gain inspiration from the stocks in North Cheriton to make replica models. 

In Art, we will ask the question; 'Is Graffiti vandalism or art?' and study the works of Keith Haring and Banksy.

Narrative poems will be the focus of our English lessons and we will use inspiration from Alfred Noyes' 'The Highwayman' to write our own.
