HOME LEARNING AND REVISION

Introduction to home learning and revision

Teaching students how to correctly retain knowledge and key subject vocabulary is fundamental to successful learning. Improving knowledge retention will have a positive impact on all levels of attainment and achievement.

When used appropriately, consistently, and in structured time at home, Knowledge Organisers (KOs) will help instil in students a wide range of knowledge to prepare them for lessons, the new style GCSEs and the world of work. KOs also encourage students to be independent when developing knowledge.

At CAN, we introduce our students to techniques that help make this key knowledge stick, through use of self-quizzing and retrieval practice within lessons.

Year 11 students have also been provided with Knowledge Organisers for all their subjects (these can be downloaded here).  We expect students to learn and revise from their KOs every week, as directed by their subject teachers. For students to succeed it is vital that they learn by heart the information on these KOs.
