Maximising Success Workshop
On Friday 13 December all year 11 students attended part 2 of the Maximising Success training from The Life Skills Company which builds on all the revision tips and techniques shared with them in Year 10.
The session started by asking students to focus on where they want to be next year: sixth form, apprenticeship, college etc. They then revisited the 12 learning/revision techniques and reminded students of what effective revision looks like. The presentation focused on the need to commit to start revising now as it is marathon and not a sprint and to create an Action Plan and stick to it. Each student received a booklet which they started to complete during the session. We all know that revising is hard work and there are many more exciting things to do, but there are 149 days until the first GCSE exam starts on 11 May 2020.
One of the key messages of the session is short-term pain for long-term gain.
Key pages from the booklet have been emailed to parents/carers. Please discuss your child’s Action Plan with them and ask them to show and explain their revision products. Your encouragement will help to keep them motivated.
