Parent Question of the WeekBack
Parent question of the week:
My child tells me that they start every lesson the same way. What is this, and why do you do this at The Oxford Academy? - Year 8 parent
We expect students to be settled at the start of every lesson, to remember key learning from the previous lessons and to have opportunities every lesson to be successful. That is why we start every lesson the same way at The Oxford Academy- with a Daily Review. This is a short 5 minute quiz at the start of every lesson. It is usually 3-5 questions and takes no more than 5 minutes. We know that the routine of completing a daily review at the start of every lesson helps our students to understand that prior knowledge is important. It allows our lessons to start promptly and for every minute of every lesson to be a learning experience. By having routines our students know what to expect and have the same high quality experiences, regardless of teacher or topic.
