Spring 2 wk 1 22.2.21

Something extra for you to do, if you are thinking about your future....

 

Warwick University are launching a monthly challenge aimed at primary school children in Key Stage 2. The project will take place between February and July 2021 and is designed and delivered by four Undergraduate Warwick Students.

What is the Digital Monthly Challenge and why take part?

The University of Warwick believes in supporting every child to access higher education and the monthly challenge aims at bringing the campus and our students to you digitally.

Our students have designed an online set of activities for your pupils to discover at home. They can learn more about our campus, what a university is and what it is like to be a student. These will be published here at the end of each month.

Who is it for?

The activities and resources are available for anyone in Key Stage 2.

How does it work?

The children can complete the activities at home on their own or with the help of their parent or teacher if they are used as part of a lesson. To access the activities, just click on the link below to find out about our topic this month and hear from our students. There will be downloadable activities and you can submit your work once you are ready. Our students will then send you a completion certificate and a short video feedback.

The project is entirely digital and can be done from home or school on a computer. It is asynchronous so the children get to meet our students indirectly via videos and blogs.  Challenges will be released in the first week of each month, February’s is now released and can be found  here.
