Team Challenge

Team Challenge is a mixed Year 2 and 3 class at Blackawton Primary School. We work closely with Team Wonder, who are a mixed Year 1 and 2 class, to ensure equal provision for our Year 2 children.

Children learn to read through daily reading, Accelerated Reader comprehension tracking and weekly guided reading sessions. If your child needs extra support, they can join phonics, oracy or daily reading sessions which are provided daily within our phase. We teach maths through Maths Mastery which ensures children develop a deep understanding of mathematical concepts.  This enables them to not just solve calculations, but to understand links and connections within mathematics with confidence. 

In Team Challenge, we foster independence and decision making. This includes children reflecting on their learning and being proud of their mistakes. As a school, we pride ourselves on knowing each child: as an individual, socially, emotionally and academically. This ensures the learning is tailored to each child’s needs and pitched at a level that is both stimulating and challenging.

This is reflected within our wider curriculum, which has been designed to stimulate a quest for knowledge and a love of learning within the children.  It has been created to scaffold children’s acquisition of knowledge, and is taught through a wealth of exciting topics, which inspire the children to strive for success.

These achievements are celebrated through our belief in the positive impact of being a rights respecting school, whereby we encourage our children to celebrate their ambitions, their achievements and their differences.

In Team Challenge, we develop self-confidence in children and the ability to be independent learners, preparing them for their next step into Class 4.
