||Over the years, we have recognized the importance of equipping the Year 6 children for the demands of Senior School. Following the great success of last year, we will be repeating our Study Skills Course during the Summer Term.
We shall spend 6 sessions looking at preparation for Senior School and giving the children an introductory course on Study Skills. In particular the lessons will cover:
- Self organisation - We have found, in previous years, that children from state Schools, in particular, have not had experience of a more structured timetable with individual subject areas and the need to be in the right place at the right time with the right kit!
- Revision techniques - We also find that children benefit enormously from some early tips on how to revise (using fun activities and techniques on memory strategies.)
- How we learn – an introduction to recognizing different learning styles and what suits you eg visual, auditory or kinesthetic learners
- Memory strategies
- Mind Mapping
This is a busy and exciting time for Year 6 children so there will be no homework and the sessions will be light and fun in tone.
Details of the course will be posted here as soon as they are available.
