Year 8 Spanish Extended Study

Students need to research a Central or South American Spanish – speaking country, and make notes in English about what is popular there in terms of sport and freetime activities. This can be shared as a googledoc, or written in their exercise book. Due date is Friday 12th May.

Year 8: Waves assessment REVISION

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.

 

Thanks!
