Memory For Learning



Why is learning memory important?

Memory is essential to all learning, because it lets you store and retrieve the information that you learn. Memory is basically nothing more than the record left by a learning process.


At Lawrence we have a toolkit of agreed activities that improve the storing and retrieval of information.


Activities that work


Quick Quiz: Whiteboards out, children are asked 5 quick questions based on their learning. Quick review of answers and out to play.

Google Forms: These are subject/topic specific and can be completed online either in school or at home. The children can publish their scores.

Class Chanting/Singing: Youtube has some amazing songs and videos. 

Talking Partners: This works! Children can talk about the skills and strategies they use every day during active read.
