The National Training Laboratories analysed the learning retention from different aspects of education. Only 5% of what we hear is retained, whereas a massive 75% is achieved from practice in doing.
In the classroom, lesson practice involves equipment and time, both of which may be in short supply – or shared with other pupils. This is one activity easily achieved at home! Using the same teaching resources at home builds confidence and pays dividends back at school in Maths, English, Numeracy and Science. Parental involvementÂ leads to a much closer understanding of the curriculum and their child’s performance rather than waiting for the end of term report.
