Learning at Bedford High School doesn’t stop when the bell goes at the end of the school day. With the challenging new changes to GCSEs ahead, never before has learning beyond the classroom been so important. Recent reliable educational research has determined that homework at secondary school improves the rate of learning by 15% and can advance children’s learning by one whole year.
We are coaching our students to reflect regularly on their learning in lessons so that they build on their learning from the classroom. Our students:
Recap the major knowledge and skills acquired in their 5 daily lessons- “what did we learn?” (Reflection)
Plan the follow-up learning from each lesson- “what do we need to revisit/revise, test?”
Practise our learning before our next lesson so that we have mastered it- “practice makes perfect!” (HOMEWORK)
