Year 11 use the Pomodoro Technique to help with their exam preparation

Students in Year 11 are really ramping up their revision, both inside and outside of school at the moment. One of the risks for students revising is that they try to do to much and end up “sort of revising”, which ultimately has very little positive impact on their ability to remember information. To counter this problem, teachers are currently asking students to use the “pomodoro” technique in class and at home. This technique works in the following ways:   1) Students get ready to tackle a topic that they have set themselves to revise. This means getting a glass/bottle of water, their stationary and any paper or revision tools that they will need   2) Students put away any distractions and make it clear to those around them that they are not to be disturbed   3) Students set a timer for a set period of time - we find that around 20 or 25 minutes works well.   4) Students attempt to complete a clear task during that time. Once they time is up they stop and - this is the really important bit - they TAKE A BREAK! This should involve walking away from their desk, dealing with whatever distractions popped in to their head whilst they were working and then getting back to work. Students should be able to do up to 4 sessions before taking a more extended break.   The results so far have been very positive. Both History teachers have reported excellent focus using this technique and the students fed back that it really helped them get through tasks that otherwise seemed pretty daunting. Ms Crisa, ICT teacher said: “I tried the Pomodoro Technique this afternoon with my Year 11 GCSE Computer Science group.  It was very successful, we did two sessions each of 20 minutes.  The students worked incredibly hard and completed revision on two topics. I put a timer on the board so they could self regulate.   Adam Batbout said that using the technique had helped him to focus and complete lots of really good revision notes.”   I wish all the students the very best of luck over the next few weeks of revision as they  prepare for the exams to come.
