In order to help our pupils revise and our parents to support revision at home, the English Department would like to share this guide to effective revision. 

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1lHMKSj3pvrBF0AyIi4T37dnLZhM27MPABQnlGRI49qs/edit?usp=sharing

 

The first half of the guide looks at effective strategies and ways to approach revision to add the most value.   It focuses on six strategies:

  • Spacing
  • Retrieval Practice
  • Interleaving
  • Elaboration
  • Concrete Examples
  • Dual Coding

 

The second part suggests lots of English specific activities and areas to focus on.  This section could be also be useful when creating a revision plan. 

We hope this guide will be helpful to pupils and parents and would like to wish everyone a happy Easter break!   See you next term!
