What is E-Team Endeavour


 E-Team Endeavour is a class of 8-10 year old children from Springston School. We have three favourite subjects -  sharing our learning on the blog, working together in a team and doing Daily 5.

The blog means a lot to the E-team because it is how we communicate and share our work to the world, and Springston School. They love it because you can share your learning and write comments. They love to post on the blog because it helps them get buddies and the buddies usually comment so that helps the E-Team get more posts.

In the  E-Team, another important thing we do is Daily 5.  Our cafe board has strategies. Our strategies are comprehension, accuracy, fluency and expand vocabulary.   The anchor chart reminds us to start straight away, stay in one spot,and read all the time.  During Daily 5 we get to choose activities from read to self, read to buddy and listen to reading, work on words and work on writing.  The Daily 5 is important to us so we can get big reading muscles.

As you can see, in Team Endeavour, our three favorite subjects are our Waka, the blog and Daily 5. These three are really important  to the Springston E team. It helps us create great learning and and shows the people of the world our learning.

E team Endeavour and what we believe

Who are the e-team and what do we believe


We are the Waka Endeavor a group of 8-10 year old children from Springston School in New Zealand, who love learning. We share our learning on our amazing blog that shows us working together and doing Daily 5.

Team Endeavor work as a team like paddles in a waka. The waka keeps our targets on the paddles for us to see in the class. The first paddle is Ako, which means not just the teacher teaches us, we teach others.
The second paddle is know our targets which we write in our planner and evaluate our success. The third paddle is to show respect. This means we look after things and look at the speaker.The fourth paddle is work as a team. Which means We use the team rules of listen to others, join in, use kind words, help each other and communicate.The fifth is do our best. which means work hard and try hard, move away from distractions.The sixth paddle is get ready to learn. Which means get ready before school, have stationery. 
As you can see, waka endeavour is all about us learning together to get the waka down our pathway of learning.

Team Endeavour has a blog that they love because we share our ideas.
We share writing, movies, Fotobabbles,  evaluation, and photos of exciting learning in E-team Endeavor.
The whole world reads and listening to the thing s we leave on the blog, they leave comments. As you can see our class blog is very exciting, We think every class should have one.


In the e-team another important thing we do is daily five.     
An important part of Daily 5 is the cafe board because it has all the strategies to help our reading.
The anchor charts remind us to start straight away, stay in one spot and read all the time.
During Daily 5 we get to chose our actives from read to self, read to buddy, listen to reading, work on words and writing.
Daily 5 helps us build stamina when we chose good fit books. The E-team love Daily 5  because they don’t spend time doing worksheets they spend all their time reading and writing to build stamina and muscles. 

As you can see the E-team Endeavour we are a great class to be in if you love blogging, Daily 5 and working together as a team to do your best learning.

100 Word Challenge


Tim and Moby
Tim and Moby the robot walked through the forest. They discovered luscious grass that was as green as green and leaves blowing in the wind and the blossoms tickled their noses.  

Suddenly a whole lot of multicolored parrots swooped down, squawking noisily like mad over top of Tim and Moby’s head. Tim couldn’t find the map so they asked the monkey for directions.  The only answer he got was a monkey sound. They pushed through all the terrific tree tops then suddenly they found what they were looking that was big.....

The Hunt!
A man named Tim went on an adventure to find the gold hidden in the jungle.
As he walked past the gummy leaves, he saw birds and bugs as big as baked beans!

Then he saw a robot, who was the keeper of the gold. The robot whispers in Tim's ear "I know where the gold is."
"Thank you," says Tim, with a smile. They set off on their adventure with the robot saying where to go.
Tim starts to see a shining light. It's the end. The gold! He runs and turns to say thanks, but the robot has run away.
