Team Endeavour

From designs to finished products!

The children in Team Endeavour have worked extremely hard this half term and have continually blown me away with their creativity and enthusiasm to get involved in our foundation subjects! 

Here they all are standing proudly with their own designs printed onto their Jubilee t-shirts!

Team Endeavour's English

Today in English, we kick started our new unit of 'A letter to my future self' by reading an example one!

The children enjoyed looking at the pictures, reading the letter and playing the games which were mentioned within it such as: Cat's Cradle and hand clapping games. 

Here they are, very excited, whilst exploring our new genre of writing! 

Over the coming week, the children will be writing their own letter to future versions of themselves!

Fashion Enthusiasts

Yesterday, the children experimented with making different tie-dye patterns and today we have used those vibrant pieces of art work to create outfits in the style of the 1970s.

The children are thoroughly enjoying our 'Through the Decades' topic and have been so enthusiastic! 

Here are some of our young designers showing off their outfits!

A fabulous group of Designers!

This afternoon, the children revisited their design skills from last week and learnt how to add text to designs. In addition to this, they learnt how to create an offset of their text and to curve it too! 

After learning and revisiting these skills, the children were tasked with creating a logo that reflected themselves!

Here are some of their designs!

The next generation of designers!

Today the children, in Team Endeavour, had their first Computing session using Cricut Design Space. 

The children have learnt how to insert,align, rotate and resize shapes. They have also learnt how to weld two shapes together and how to slice one shape out of another! Collage 2022-05-03 18_56_35

Over the coming weeks, the children will be learning lots of new skills to help them design and create their own T-Shirt design to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee.

After sharing the WAGOLL with the children, they are all very excited to create their own version of the design!

Considering our Energy Use

Yesterday afternoon, all Year 5 and 6 children explored how our energy use can have an impact on the world. We discussed the difference between renewable and non-renewable sources. After that, they were given a situation that they needed to reenact. In each scenario, there was someone who was using energy in an irresponsible way. The children then performed these quick role plays to the rest of their class before reflecting on their own energy use and its impact.
