Revision Day

Y7-13 have taken part in a revision day to support future assessments and life long learning. During this day, students explored the theory of learning and memory with the emphasis on retrieval practice. Students were taught 7 strategies underpinned by cognitive science to support the retention of knowledge. This was further supported with a parent webinar on Tuesday 19th October, thank you to all that attended.
