READY STEADY STUDY PROGRAMME
Posted on 12th March 2020 | News
To help pupils prepare for their AS Modules, all Year 13 pupils attended the ‘Ready Steady Study programme’ on 9 March, delivered by Paul Gray, Company Director of Learn Spark. This course provided students with the attitudes, confidence and skill to study effectively and to A Level standard. It set out tried-and-tested techniques, strategies and approaches to support revision, and detailed the key steps required to effectively plan and manage learning and revision time. The day placed a strong emphasis on the students learning to think, act and study independently, all of which are essential life skills to implement in their learning and study.
The following key areas were explored:
Setting the right conditions for revision
Connecting with powerful revision strategies to strengthen understanding and recall, including:
- Note-taking and summary development
- Graphic organisers
- Memory techniques
Effective time management
With positive feedback from our Year 13 pupils on the event, they now feel further equipped with a range of new revision strategies to implement in preparation for their upcoming examinations.
