Year 8 have a short assessment on waves tomorrow. There are some anchor charts (posters with important information) on google classroom which they can use to revise. If students log in to classroom and then click on 8.3 waves, there are a series of photographs of the anchor charts that are up in our classroom.
We have spoken today about how to use these. Self-testing is a very effective way to make knowledge permanent. So students ought to spend around an hour tonight, covering sections of the anchor chart and then testing themselves on what they have hidden. It helps to have pen and paper near so that they can make a note of things that they have forgotten. Then retesting on the forgotten bits just ten minutes later will strengthen the memory, even more so than had they never forgotten in the first place.
It would be really helpful if friends and family could test them on this too.
Students have a spelling test next Friday, 28th April. They need to learn to spell the first 10 clothes words learnt in class. Any problems, please see Mrs Sprakes.
