Learning to Learn: Memory & Retrieval
The Mastering Memory Programme equips students with the skills they need to revise effectively. The programme gives students a better understanding of how their memory works and applies this understanding to a variety of revision techniques.
These revision techniques are based on ‘retrieval practice’ which is backed up by a wide range of cognitive science research.
- Students in years 7-10 receive a Mastering Memory lesson once every half term during PSHCE.
- Our year 11 students have a Mastering Memory workshop once every 3 weeks as part of the school’s period 6 programme.
