All Aboard The Endeavour! Class 2

21 May 2021

Our thoughts have been away at sea this week, as we began our new theme.  Our current learning focus is history, looking particularly at the lives of significant individuals.  We have been investigating the life and achievements of Captain James Cook.  

We discovered that Captain Cook was born in Yorkshire, 300 years ago.   He was the Captain of a ship called The Endeavour.  He sailed around the world, with voyages to Australia, New Zealand and the coast of Antarctica and is famous for his expert map making skills.  We have begun our timeline work and found that Captain Cook lived in the 1700’s.

We worked collaboratively to create a copy of The Endeavour for our display wall.  Some of us made the ship and others painted it.  A group glued the sails to the rigging, whilst other children put all the parts together:

We have enjoyed recreating The Endeavour in a variety of ways.  In our Forest School lesson, we built HMS Endeavour from loose parts and had fun playing Captain Cook.  Please see the photographs that Mrs Goss has posted in the article ‘Building the Endeavour’.   We tried hard to draw pictures of the ship, as well as building it with our construction kits.  Our outside area has become the deck of HMS Endeavour and we have been role playing Captain Cook and his sailors.
