Seneca Learning 

Students will use directed Seneca tasks to consolidate knowledge and skills acquired in-class across curriculum areas.

Knowledge Organisers and Self Quizzing Books 

Knowledge Organisers contain critical, fundamental knowledge for all subjects that you must know in order to be successful. They will help you recap, revisit and revise what you have learnt in lessons to move the knowledge within from your short-term memory to long-term memory. Students will receive a copy of their knowledge organiser and self-quizzing book. These should be kept safe and brought to school every day.
