The importance of practice when learning and remembering new skills
Your children often need more practise in learning and remembering knowledge and skills than school timetables allow for.
Is your child:
- Having difficulty remembering particular skills?
- Not understanding some new knowledge?
- Hating or not confident in certain subjects?
Perhaps they have issues with all of those?
Revise, revise, revise to make learning and remembering effortless.
It is vitally important your child practise key reading, writing, and Mathematics skills and knowledge until learning and remembering them is effortless and automatic. The brain’s memory pathways grow physically larger when they are regularly used. When your child does not get enough practise in learning and remembering new skills and knowledge, those memory pathways fade away easily, especially when they are not connected to other memory pathways so they are anchored and strong.
