Working from home
Endeavour Primary School is now partially closed and we are therefore providing remote learning via the school website. All activities can be added to Tapestry and it is important to keep this up to date. Your child's class teacher will be able to respond to you directly through Tapestry and provide you with support and individual next steps for your child. The website will be updated every two weeks (each project is designed to last two weeks)
If you need to contact your child's class teacher during the partial closure then please do so via email (firstname.lastname@example.org). In the subject line please put you child's class and their teacher for example: FOA Miss Colclough Attenborough. This will help us manage the emails coming in.
We have also added a comprehensive list of websites and activities to the Pupil Zone. There will also be activities for you child on their Purple Mash account (details in the front of their school diary).

For the first few weeks of the second half term our project is ‘Why are leaves crispy?’ The children will become Autumn explorers.
On the Wednesday 6th November please send your child to school with warm coat, hat, scarf and gloves ready to go to our pretend firework show.
We would love to see pictures on tapestry of your child going on an autumnal walk looking at similarities and differences and comparing seasons. This is also a great opportunity for your child to share what they have done at home with their class. Please can you also collect and bring to school a variety of Autumnal objects.
This half term our first project is 'Can we explore it?'
The children will become storyteller explorers. We will focus on 'We're going on a bear hunt.' and the children will have the opportunity to retell the story, investigate maps and follow trails. The children will end the project by retelling the story to another class.
Find an adventurous place to read a book. Remember to take a picture and put it on tapestry.
Our second topic is ‘Why can’t I have chocolate for breakfast?’
The children will be learning about things that they eat and how different foods affect their health and well-being. They will observe the changes in food from melting, freezing, mixing and cooking.
There will be an end of project 'family picnic'
Make a healthy meal or breakfast smoothie, add pictures or recipe to tapestry.
