To ensure that substantive knowledge is instilled in our students long term memory we believe independent learning is crucial to allowing our pupils to thrive. Through the use of knowledge organisers, online providers and reading we provide our pupils with the tools to constantly improve.
Weekly mini quizzes and retrieval exercises are imbedded in our lessons to allow our students to build stronger schema's of knowledge and become experts in geography.
Expectations of retrieval practice
- In all lessons mini quizzes to recap and recall prior learning. The questions will focus on the retrieval of knowledge which students have been studying over the course of the term.
- 60-80% of the questions will be focused on recent knowledge. 20-40% of the questions will require the retrieval of older knowledge.
