Date: 18th March at 6.00pm

SUITABLE FOR ALL KEY STAGES

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

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 and book author, 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. We will give you evidence-based tips on how you can support your children through your own understanding of the science of how we all learn over time. We’ll also debunk some commonly held myths about how the brain works. Together, we will help children to build confidence, learn better and be more independent students throughout primary and secondary schools.

After the workshop you will:

  • Understand key information about how memory works
  • Learn the most effective research-based strategies for learning
  • Be better equipped to support your child’s learning at home
