Dear Most Able Learner,
I hope that you and your family are well and that you continue to work hard on
completing work set by all your teachers. I also hope that I can encourage you to
participate in the Most Able Challenge, in addition to what you already complete on a
In short, the Most Able Challenge for students in Y7, Y8 or Y9 involves writing four poems
in six weeks, in different poetry styles. The focus for all poems is COVID 19. If you are in
Y10, the challenge refers to university-style fiction writing.
The Most Able Challenge has cross-curricular links with the main focus on English
Literature and Language. It is aimed at widening your knowledge at GCSE level and
beyond. In addition, it will provide you with a different style of challenge and one I hope
you will enjoy.
The Most Able challenge will start on different days, for different year groups, and all
resources, and detailed instructions, will be published on Show My Homework. In
addition, resources for Y10 learners will be posted to their home addresses. You have
also been added to a SMHK class, called ‘Most Able Challenge’, enabling you to
access the resources and instructions.
The challenge start dates and submission deadlines are as follows:
Y7 – 19.05.2020 – 30.06.2020;
Y8 – 02.06.2020 – 07.06.2020;
Y9 – 09.06.2020 – 14.07.2020;
Y10 – 19.05.2020 – 10.07.2020;
I really hope you enjoy this fun, yet challenging, project and look forward to getting your
insight on this unique experience. Once the school re-opens to its full capacity, I hope to
celebrate your work, effort and creativity.
Please contact me via Show My Homework, should you have any questions
