This week's challenge is to watch a documentary on a subject that interests your son or daughter and discuss it together. You can find lots on YouTube if nothing on TV is suitable. If your child doesn't have any ideas I suggest one of the Planet Earth episodes that were on the BBC recently. You'll find them on I-player.

The activity for this week is to listen to your child read a chapter of his or her book, or read a chapter with them. Discuss what they're reading - what's the story about? What do they think will happen next? Who is the best character? Why? Do they like the book? Why?

Introduction to The Family Challenge
Tuesday 9th January 2018
In the New Year's Resolution spirit, we've come up with a list of fun activities for families to do together. This idea is based on the National Trust's "50 things to do before you're 11 3/4", which you may already have seen. Parents and carers tell us that their children are often reluctant to talk a great deal about school life and what they are learning, and these activities are designed to provide opportunities to talk together.

Each week in 2018 we will provide a challenge for you to complete with your child. These activities are completely optional and simply offered as suggestions for fun activities to do together. We hope you try at least a few and that you enjoy them!
