About 'Challenge Opportunities'
The 'Challenge Opportunities' are designed to increase the understanding and links between curriculum subjects and the world around us. It is hoped the booklet will enhance a genuine ‘love of learning’ through investigation, exploration and discovery in other environments. It will also support the skills learnt in school and enable you to utilise them, which is increasingly important in education.
We hope all students will engage with, and enjoy the Challenge Opportunities; there is a real benefit in students experiencing things independently, being curious and inquisitive. The challenges will also support you to gain a wider variety of knowledge and greater depth of understanding.
The 'Challenge Opportunities' will be rewarded with curriculum badges that can be achieved after completion of a number of challenges specified in the booklet. Challenges are available for all subjects so students can engage with any subject of their choosing, from those they enjoy to those they find more challenging.
The challenges booklet has been developed as part of our ‘Roots and Fruits’ project. The project was designed by staff at The Cottesloe School to encourage lifelong learning. We hope all students and their families will take pleasure in taking part, and enjoy the opportunity to learn independently beyond the classroom.
