Retrieval

In each lesson pupils are given numerous retrieval opportunities which challenges them to recall and apply facts and information from previous learning. At the beginning of each lesson, pupils will complete a short retrieval task that will be based upon learning that has taken place in the previous lesson. At the end of the lesson, pupils will be provided with a task which assesses the learning that has just taken place. At this point they will also be challenged to recall information from learning that may have taken place at any point in their learning journey whether that be the previous lesson, previous week, previous term or even previous year(s). These retrieval opportunities are supplemented by short tasks that appear intermittently during lessons which constantly allows assessment to be taking place. The aim is to prepare pupils for formal, termly assessments which are cumulative and can include questions on recent content as well as material that has been covered in the past.
