Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

Fiennes, Da Vinci and Dahl

Working from home


Endeavour Primary School is now partially closed and we are therefore providing remote learning via the school website and through Purple Mash. Purple Mash will be updated regularly and the website will be updated every two weeks (each project is designed to last two weeks). The next project will be uploaded on the 20th April 2020.


If you need to contact your child's class teacher during the partial closure then please do so via email ( In the subject line please put you child's class and their teacher for example: FAO Miss Higginson- Fiennes Class. This will help us manage the emails coming in.


All year groups projects/activities are available so please feel free to use all resources available to you. We have also added a comprehensive list of websites and activities to the Pupil Zone.


We would love to see and hear about everything that you have been getting up to. You could write a diary or make a scrapbook to share when we return.


Stay safe, look after yourselves and we look forward to welcoming you all back to school soon.


Many thanks,


Year 1 team


An exciting plant update...


Before the school partially closed, our Year 1 children took on the responsibility of planting seeds to grow into flowers and vegetables. They labelled everything carefully, watered the seeds and we are delighted to share that they have started to grow.


Check back soon for more updates.


Well done Year 1! smiley

At King Campus in Fiennes Class, our teacher is Miss Higginson. In Da Vinci Class, our teacher is Miss Croxford and our TA is Ms O’Sullivan. At the Kirk Campus, our teacher in Dahl Class is Mrs Francis-Pollin and our TA is Mrs Spencer.


Our Year Leader across both campuses is Miss Higginson. If you have any questions, concerns or queries, please speak to your child’s class teacher or pop a note in their home school diary.


Home Learning

In Year One, children will be sent home weekly with spellings in their home school diaries to practise at home in preparation for a spelling test every Friday. Please practise these at home with your child.


We highly encourage parents to read with their children at home as this not only helps to develop their reading skills but their enjoyment and pleasure for reading too. With this in mind, children who read 5 times or more at home over the course of the week will receive a bookworm sticker.  If you read with your child at home, simply record it in their home school diaries. Home school diaries get checked every morning.


Our banded book change day is Tuesday and Friday. 


Additionally an updated key word list will be sent home each half term for you to practise with your children at home. Children will be tested regularly at school.



We will have two sessions of PE a week:

King Campus– Monday and Tuesday

Kirk Campus– Tuesday and Wednesday

We will be continuing with the daily run, so please ensure that your child has suitable footwear to participate every day.


Forest school

Fiennes and Da Vinci class will have Forest School (King Campus) on a Thursday morning. Dahl class (Kirk Campus) will have Forest School on a Wednesday morning. Children may come to school dressed in their Forest School clothes and bring their uniform in a named bag. Please check your child's class window for more information on Forest School.


If you have any questions please don't hesitate to catch a year one team member on the door. If you haven't already please download The School App to keep up to date with key information.


Thank you for your support.
