Laurus Ryecroft’s out of lesson learning has just become easier. The preparation, practice and retrieval guide is now here to help both students and parents understand the homework process so everyone can get involved.

At Laurus Ryecroft we refer to homework as Preparation and Practice (P&P). This practice may often take the form of retrieval practice – PP&R.

Retrieval is different from revision in one distinct way – it involves students retrieving information from their memory, as opposed to looking up information in books or from their notes. Students are familiar with retrieval practice exercises as they complete these in lessons. The act of retrieving information is a powerful learning tool that can make significant improvements to long-term memory and retention of information.
