At Meynell Primary we have adopted the fundamental principles of the ‘Learning Challenge Curriculum’, which we have adapted to the unique needs of our school. We believe that this helps our pupils not only acquire knowledge, skills and understanding but also and importantly, a spirit of enquiry. This concept is built around greater learning involvement on a number of levels. It requires deeper thinking as it encourages learners to explore given learning challenges. Our teaching teams then work extremely hard to ensure that our work is as cross curricular as possible and that our learning challenges permeate all areas of the curriculum. These are some of the ‘Learning Challenges’ that pupils will be investigating this year:
- Were the Vikings always victorious and vicious?
- What makes the earth angry?
- Will we ever send another man to the moon?
- How could you be the next Jessica Ennis?
Alongside this we use themed days and weeks to excite and engage our children, these include:
Outdoor learning day
Sheffield art day
No pen day
