Activity Journals, Home Learning Sites and Year Group Topic Challenges

In the first instance, we provided you with an extensive step by step Activity Journal aimed at the three different school stages (EYFS, KS1 and KS2).

These journals allowed your child to access all the different areas of the curriculum: English, Maths, Science, History, Geography, Art and Design, music and PE.

There was clear advice within the journals about how to approach working through it and how best to help your child. 

As well as this, we have also provided you with Topic Challenges. These are linked to your children’s topics. These Topic Challenges, give your child different types of activities linked to English, topic as well as DT and art.

NEW We have now added some Topic Challenges based on the children's creative topics from the Summer Term. 

Both the Activity Journals and the Topic Challenges should be placed within a daily routine so the content is spread out over a number of weeks. We suggest the new Talk for Writing Activity Journal should take between two and three weeks . The Topic Challenge Sheets should take around two weeks. After this time, we will be adding more Topic Challenges.

To save printing and paper costs, we suggest you don't print off the Activity Journals but download them and view them on the computer. We suggest you then get your child to write their reponses in a A4 lined notebook to keep a record of the activities your child completes.

Topic Challenges Set One - History Spring
