Welcome to our class, we are all proud to be members of Team Endeavour.
This year we will be closely working with Endurance Class. Mr Coombes and Mrs Calway will be sharing the teaching, supported by Teaching Assistants - Mr Barrett, Miss Derrick and Mr Jenkins.
As a team we learn to work collaboratively by solving problems, sharing ideas, supporting each other and having open discussions with the teaching staff. We are developing our knowledge across both Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 Curricula in preparation for transition to the next stage in the pupils’ education.
We hope to go on some amazing trips, especially residential visits. We are also learning to interact with others in fun, educational activities with local schools.
We are learning
During this Half Term, we will be finding out about the Ancient Greeks. We will be investigating the history of the Greek Empire to discover more about the key figures of Ancient Greece and about the many battles that they fought. We will also be learning about how the Greeks used to live and finding out about the first Olympics.
In Geography, we will be locating Greece on the map and comparing the natural and manmade landmarks with the United Kingdom.
In Art and DT, we will be making Greek pots, models of the mythological creatures from Ancient Greek stories and using mixed media to create our own 3D Greek map.
In English, we are focussing on key grammar skills and sentence construction, learning about the different word classes and how we use them.
