Headteacher 'Keeping in Touch'

Headteachers Challenge!

 

Well done to everyone who took on my Headteacher challenge last week and did a Scavenger Hunt. Muntaha’s Mum set her a scavenger hunt of things to find around the house and Darcey found some lovely things in the nature Scavenger Hunt we suggested. Well done, we hope you all enjoyed it.

 

 

For this week, Darcey has set a challenge for you… Your challenge is to fit as many things as you can in a matchbox! Darcey managed to get over 100 different things in her matchbox! You must also include a written list of items too.

 

 

Good Luck!

Letter Sent to the Families: Tuesday 16 June

 

We hope you and your families are keeping well and the easing in some of the restrictions have meant you have been able to get out and about a bit more and even meet up with some family and friends. Please see the letter I emailed out to all families this week regarding the children who have been able to return to school this June and the current situation.

 

 

Hello children,

 

I hope that you are okay and keeping safe and well at home. I have been so impressed with all of the things that you have been doing at home from art and cookery to gardening and writing biographies. I thought you might like to see some of the things that I have been doing when I have been at home.

 

I have been doing some gardening and running and you can see some of the photographs that I have taken on my runs - that's my excuse when I need to take a little rest!

 

  

 

I have also been attempting to finish my jigsaw puzzle but one of my cats, Bessie, has had other ideas and she has decided that the puzzle makes quite a cosy bed and that the pieces are good fun to play with!

 

  

 

I have been doing my Joe Wicks workout every day at home and when I am at school. 

I saw the photos of some of you enjoying Mr. Leone's disco - wasn't it brilliant? What a great idea and I can't wait until the next one. I love hearing from you and it brightens my day when I see your class pages and receive your emails. Your teachers are planning some great activities for you and I'm so pleased that even though we're apart, it feels that we are close together in lots of different ways. The newsletter, the website, photos and emails - The Endowed family is always there and anyone can see it is full up of Love, Learning and Laughter and overflowing into our community as well. I'm extremely proud of each and every one of you. 

I had an idea that we could all make a heart, be as creative as you like -  it could be painted, Lego, large, tiny whatever you like. Take a photo of  yourself holding it and then email it to me; I will then make a collage of all the photos. I think it would look amazing! 

Take care and stay safe.

 

Lots of love,  Ms B xx

The LOCKDOWN TIMES

Whitstables First Ever Newspaper for Children written in Lockdown!

 

I am delighted to be able to share with you this brilliant 'Magazine Style Newspaper' written by the local children of Whitstable. It is lovely to see the children working together to publish this for other children to read and to ignite their imaginations.  The Newspaper is bursting with fun news articles, fashion, film reviews, jokes, recipes, pictures, puzzles/competition and lots more.

 

A special mention to two of the budding journalists; Lily (Lynx class) and Cleo (Hedgehog class) who are dedicated 'Staff Journalists' and you can read their articles in both editions. 

 

I hope you all enjoy reading May and June's edition.

The Endowed Log Book from 1918: The Spanish Flu

 

 

I was reading our school Log Book from 1918 and the accounts of the Spanish Flu. In Oct 1918 the school was closed for 3 weeks and reassembled on Nov 11th. Amelia Carter the Headmistress, reported that: 

 

During the week ending Oct 18th, many of the girls and the Head Teacher were attacked by the complaint and the latter was absent for two days and was unable to attend on Monday Oct 21st. On that day more than half the scholars and all the teachers except Miss Ougham were ill and the Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Greenwood, gave his consent for the closure of the schools. During the three weeks that school has been closed all the teachers and the majority of the children have had influenza. When school reassembled this morning all members of the staff were present and during the morning news came that an ‘Armistice’ had been entered into with Germany. Great joy was shown by the children and the teachers…
