We would like to say a massive welcome to you and your family on your child’s first year of school at Endeavour Primary School. We are looking forward to working together to support and encourage your child to learn and grow.
If you have any queries or questions, please speak to your child’s class teacher either by booking an appointment via the office or writing a message in your child's school diary. If you require any other information then please book an appointment with Miss Colclough (Year R leader).
We are now using Tapestry for our remote learning. If you are self isolating, your child's profile will be updated with work that you can access from home. The work will directly link to activities we will be doing in school. Please upload your child's home learning to Tapestry for your child's class teacher to see.
If you have any questions please speak to your child’s class teacher in the first instance.
PE will be held once a week, however it is suggested that PE kits stay in school all week as other activities may crop up that require us to get changed. The Kirk Campus will have PE on Thursdays and the King Campus will take part in PE on Fridays.
Reading: Please read with your child as often as possible at home and record in their home school book to allow us to know if you need a new book. We change books on a Tuesday and Friday.
Phonics: We will begin learning our sounds at school and it would be great if you can reinforce these at home. Keep an eye on your child's Tapestry account to see which sounds we have been practising. Please feel free to download the flash cards below and use them at home.
Key words: Some words are known as 'key words' these are words that are frequently used in books and often are not decodable using our knowledge of sounds. Please find a list attached to practise recognising the key words by sight. We will test you child every half term on how they are getting on. Please only focus on a few key words at a time to ensure the children are not overwhelmed and secure in knowing a few words, before moving on to learn more.
At Endeavour, we will engage in many exciting projects over the academic year. Our new project is called 'How many colours in a rainbow?' More information will come to you about our projects via Tapestry.
In Year R we use Tapestry to gather evidence around each child's learning. By Monday 14th September you should have received an email (please check your junk folder) to sign up to your child’s account. You will be able to see what they have been up to at school as we upload pictures of their learning. We love to see what you get up to at home, so please add exciting news to your child’s account for us to share at school. This can include, cooking, clubs, days out, family events, learning new skills and having lots of fun! Any questions, please ask your child’s class teacher.
