At Hylands we focus on ‘PREP’ rather than the traditional ‘homework’. So what is PREP? PREP is what we do with important information we have learnt during the school day and how we prepare for the next day of learning.
Evidence suggests that we only retain 50% of the information we learnt yesterday and after a week, we only retain 10%. The only way we can move the information we have learnt into long-term memory is through re-visiting the information 4 or 5 times over a number of weeks.

PREP will either be uploaded to your child’s google classroom or given to them in lesson. We encourage students to PREP each evening.
Here at Hylands school we use Google Classroom to aid and support our student learning experience.
This google account will give the student access to:
