Most school holidays families are set a 'Family Challenge'. The Family Challenges aim to encourage families to set aside some time in the holiday to do something together.
Challenges vary from just talking to each other about a topic, to creating a piece of artwork. As families complete the challenges set, they must collect evidence of some sort. Evidence may be a photo, a piece of writing or a piece of artwork. Evidence is brought into school by a set date. Families who have completed the Family Challenge are then invited to a 'Family Challenge Celebration', where they are presented with a certificate and each infant/nursery child who has completed the challenge receives a prize.
Here is some feedback that parents gave us recently about the Family Challenge:
- I took part and it was a great way to encourage parents to take part in children's activities.
- Really enjoyed them with other children - looking forward to doing them again with youngest.
- They are interesting to the children and encourage the whole family to take part together.
- It is brilliant.
- It is a fun way to encourage completing activities together.
