Dear Parents and Students of Year 3
We would like to invite interest from any students in Year 3 wishing to participate in a workshop designed to boost study/revision skills and preparation for exams.
Following the successful set of workshops  offered last academic year to  Year 3 students as well  as to Upper School students , Veema Education, a UK based educational consultancy firm (, is working with us to offer a student masterclass designed specifically for Year 3 students, entitled ‘Kick-Start Study Skills’.
What does this masterclass involve?
  • Effective strategies for processing information — including memory games that help build brainpower.
  • Reflecting with students on how they currently study — what works for them and why and how we could improve the way they approach independent study time.
  • What revision methods do not work and why they are not effective.
  • Growth mindset — the importance of students developing a growth mindset attitude towards learning.
  • Activities include areas such as: personal, learning and thinking skills, independent enquirers,team workers,creative thinkers,self managers,reflective learners,effective participators etc.
The workshops will take place in the School Hall on  Tuesday 4th April . The times will be confirmed at a later stage.
  • To acquire important strategies and techniques for exam success
  • To enable students to properly plan and personalise learning and revision
  • To develop time management and organisational skills
Projected outcomes:
Student will leave the Kick-Start Study Skills masterclass;
·                     Feeling confident in using ''the seven habits of an effective learner'- when in the classroom or studying independently.
·                     With examples of a ‘growth mindset’ attitude and how the brain works best when learning.
