Striving for excellence together

Home Challenges Are A Huge Success

Posted on: 25th May 2014

Hayesdown pupils and their families have taken to Home Challenges like ducks to water!  Replacing narrow homework tasks with open-ended projects has allowed pupils and their families to show how creative they are.  Teachers have been amazed at the truly wonderful projects that have been brought into school to share, and delighted by the pride children have shown when sharing their work.  Other reasons to celebrate are: the fact that nearly every child participated; children learnt from each other’s work and ideas, and family members truly engaged with children’s learning, with several parents and carers reporting that they had a lot of fun along the way was well!  We couldn’t have asked for more.  THANK YOU!








Pictured here are a small sample of the Home Challenges completed by pupils in Years 3 and 4.  Parents and carers are welcome to pop into school to look at the children’s work – it’s well worth seeing!
