Yesterday our students in Year 9, Year 10, Year 12 and Year 13 participated in a study skills workshop with their year group, Memory Mnemonics, Study Sensi and Student Elevation respectively. These workshops were engaging and informative and helped break down the study techniques of top performing students, providing our students with a ‘road map’ for what work they need to be doing across the year and how to do it. Key skills covered included memory aides, time management, effective note taking, conceptual learning skills and standing out in assessments. The Year 11 students will attend their workshop, Ace Your Exams, in Term 2 after their mock examinations.
An information session for parents will also be run by Elevate Education on Wednesday 4th September, 5:30-6:30pm. Whilst it is most relevant for parents of students in KS4 and KS5, parents of students in Year 7 and 8 are also welcome to attend. This workshop will focus on key study and time management skills and how to support students through the stages of their iCGSE and IBDP courses.
