The Science of Learning: Powerful Tools for Parents


FOR ALL KEY STAGES (mostly appropriate for KS2, 3, 4 and 5)

Do you want to learn more about the powerful tips for supporting your children’s learning at home? Do you want to know what the research says about how we learn?

At BIC, we are committed to supporting students to develop the most effective habits for learning — and we want your help.

In this parent session, led by international speaker, Tricia Taylor from Tailored Practice, you will learn specific strategies children can use to maximise memory and learn more efficiently, leading to more creative and analytical thinking — and better outcomes and more confidence. We will give you evidence-based tips on how you can support your children through your understanding of learning and the language you use in daily interactions. Together, we will help children to build confidence, learn better and be more independent learners throughout primary and secondary schools.

After the workshop you will:

  • understand key information about memory works
  • learn the most effective research-based strategies for learning
  • be better equipped to support your child’s learning at home

Parents from all over the island are welcome to take part, even if their child does not attend BIC.
