revising strategies1
Revising strategies
  • Organise a place to work
  • Hit the stationary aisle
  • Ask to have a look at any revision

notes at the end of the day and

get them to talk through and

explain what they’ve done

  • Review their planned progress
  • Help keep them positive
  • Plenty of breaks are good, chunk into at least 20/30 minutes (No faffing!)
revising strategies2
Revising strategies
  • Feed the machine!
  • Fresh fruit and plenty of water

(and bribes with the treats!)

  • Time to be sleeping like a baby!

Steady sleep patterns are proven to be crucial in helping retain information

  • Wakey, wakey weekend!

Encourage the morning to be used for revising new things, use the afternoon to revise things already learnt.
