Silas and Me

SAM Challenge is a series of planned activities for our children to work on at home, at school and within the community. It is based on our four school shared values – love, belonging, thankfulness and service.

Phase 1 for Years 1, 2 and 3

For each badge, choose 3 home challenges and 1 community challenge. Your teacher will choose 6 school challenges.

Phase 2 for Years 4, 5 and 6

For each badge, choose 3 home challenges and 2 community challenge. Your teacher will choose 5 school challenges.

For each challenge you need to show how you have completed it. 

You could make up a song, draw a picture, write a poem or letter, make a model or piece of art, tell your class what you’ve done, take photo’s, design a poster or create a PowerPoint. You only need one piece of evidence for each challenge. 

To earn your badge, you need to have completed and shown evidence for ten challenges. Your badge can be sewn onto the arm of your school jumper.

Some of the challenges have been adapted in light of COVID so that your child continue with the awards despite the COVID restrictions. Please see the links below.

Children will be awarded the badges above to sew onto their school sweatshirt when they complete the challenges.
