What is it?
The Super Curriculum here at Priestnall offers all students the opportunity to take part in a range of exciting, enriching, learning activities outside of the regular school curriculum.
The activities take the subjects you study in the classroom beyond that which your teacher has taught you or what you have done at home. For example, you may go into much more depth on a topic that you have learned in the classroom or learn about a new topic altogether. These activities can take many forms, so you will have the opportunity to experience learning in lots of different ways. There is a handy key at the bottom of each Super Curriculum activity sheet. This shows you exactly what type of learning experience you will be undertaking when completing an activity.
The activities include:
- Listening to podcasts/other audio material
- Watching documentaries/movies
- Reading new novels/literature
- Visiting relevant places
- Researching a specific topic and leading your own investigation
- Creating something
- Writing a specific essay/article
- Taking part in a competition. Locally or nationally.
Engaging in super curricular activities will help you develop a love for your favourite subject or subjects. In this booklet, there are a range of activities, suggested by your teachers. They are by no means exhaustive lists but should get you started. I would encourage you to share ideas and opportunities you come across with your teachers so that, over time, the recommended activities in this booklet can grow. In the future, employers or universities will be interested to hear about what super curricular activities you have engaged in; they will be interested in what you have learnt and will be impressed by your efforts.
I wish you well as you commence your Super Curriculum experience!
