Learning Challenge Curriculum

Our Learning Challenge topics for this year are:

Autumn 1 – REACH for Greatness.

Autumn 2 – Footprints Of the Past – WW2.

Spring 1 – The Tales We Tell – Animal tales. 

Spring 2 – A Moment In Time – Stone age. 

Summer 1 – No Place Like Home – Trip To Europe.

Summer 2 – Treasures and Gold – Out and About.

Reading – We take part in whole-class reading three times a week where we enjoy spending time discussing the themes of stories, poems and non-fiction texts, digging deeper into the text and drawing out inferences and opinions about what is happening. 

How can you support your child’s learning? 

Spellings –  Spelling lists will be handed out on a Friday and children will be tested the following Friday. Please help your child to practise and extend their learning by practising these. 

Reading at Home – Hearing your child reading every day will have a huge impact on all areas of their learning.  Reading is part of your child’s homework and they have a challenge to read at least three times a week. Can you please listen to your child read for at least 15 minutes and make a note in your reading journal. This doesn’t just have to be their reading book- they could read a recipe whilst cooking, read a newspaper or even read a story to a younger sibling. Please ensure reading records are returned to school every Friday.
