The consultants here at Focus Education have prepared a range of Focus Mini Clips. These are short video inputs on current and relevant themes which are a great starter to any staff meeting or twilight session. Pause, rewind and share with staff in your school.Product Description
This mini clip looks at how we should be creating learning journeys for pupils in foundation subjects and science. It provides examples of how you could ensure that pupils are provided with opportunities to retrieve previous knowledge before starting on a new unit of learning. It also provides you with clarity about strands of learning such as the human body in science, chronology in history and mapping in geography.
Getting the retrieval right contributes hugely to pupils' long-term retention of new information. This mini clip explores the retrieval from within the subject, other subjects, and personal experiences. For example, before starting on the Year 4 unit about the digestive system, pupils should be given time to retrieve all the learning they have already done about the human body. In addition, there needs to be an opportunity to acknowledge what they already know, i.e., where the stomach is and how important it is to eat healthily.
This mini clip shows how this could be completed across all foundation subject as well as science. It supports the process of helping pupils retain information for the long term. The mini clip suggests that 'Lesson One' in each new unit of learning should be a retrieval of prior knowledge.
