Stretch & Challenge

These ‘Stretch and Challenge’ pages are intended to help your son or daughter to take responsibility for some of their own learning at Park Hall. In lessons there will be occasions when they may like to increase the difficulty of the work, try an additional task or link their learning across subjects. It may be that their learning at home or in extra-curricular studies could enable them to take their classroom learning to the next level. There will be explanations as to how your son or daughter can initiate this learning with the support of their teacher.
