Roydon Primary Academy students working with parents to solve daily challenge set by head

Children are working with their parents to solve a daily challenge set by their headteacher.

PUPILS at Roydon Primary Academy, in Harlow, are being set work to complete at home while schools are closed due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Teachers are sharing videos on education app ClassDojo of them reading stories and regular virtual assemblies are keeping the school community in touch.

Now, headteacher Michael Clark has launched a fun project to bring children and their families together – Mr Clark’s Daily Dojo Challenge.

Each day, Mr Clark sets a challenge for children and parents to complete together, including map work, riddles, logical thinking puzzles, coding, Twitter challenges and quiz questions.

He said: “These challenges have been additional extras on top of the amazing work the children are producing.

“With parents also at home, the rationale behind this is to entertain the parents while encouraging some collaborative work between parents and their children.
The challenges I set are for both parents and children and the majority have been posted to do together, therefore trying to encourage parents and children to work together.

They have been a lot of fun and I love seeing the pictures and videos of the families completing them.”
