Home Learning Challenges

Home Learning Challenges 

 This is an exciting area of learning we are inviting you to take part in. Leamington School home learning is based on the Leamington School virtues and COGS and is

designed to teach you to be self-motivated and independent with your learning. It gives you opportunities to try new things and learn life-skills you can use in the

wider world.


While completing the challenges to achieve a certificate you are expected to still complete the traditional homework tasks of reading nightly, to learn any spelling words and maths basic facts or problems given to you by your teacher, this sheet will give you ideas of other home learning tasks you can complete if you wish.


The home learning challenges need to be completed carefully – remember it is quality not quantity that counts. It will probably take you all year to complete your set number of challenges! As you complete each challenge you will need to have it signed off by your parents and then shown to your teacher to make sure you have completed it properly.  If you need help with your home learning, you should ask your parents. Your parents are responsible for supervising your safety

while you complete these challenges.


Ask your classroom teacher which day is for checking challenges in your class.

 

The Home Learning Challenges have been broken into 6 levels of Difficulty.  The numbers beside each colour generally correspond to an expected year level.  However, if children are finding the challenges either too difficult, or too easy they can complete a different colour home learning challenge.

Home Learning Success Criteria:

• There are four certificates that you can be awarded in a year:

Bronze, Silver, Gold and the Home-Challenge Leamington

Learner award.

• To be awarded the first certificate (bronze) you must

complete five challenges: one from each section (one from

each COG).

• Each time you complete another five challenges: one more

from each section (one from each COG) you will be awarded

another certificate until you have received all four

certificates.

• You must have some evidence to prove that you have completed

each challenge – e.g. photos, product, performance, movie,

power point or equivalent.

• It is quality not quantity that counts so take your time to do

each challenge with excellence!
