At Telford Priory School our aim is to provide an ambitious curriculum for all of our students. This curriculum will provide our students with powerful knowledge. This knowledge is encapsulated with our core questions.
What are Core Questions and how should I practise them?
Core questions are sets of questions and answers that all students are expected to learn off by heart by practising using the "Look, Cover, Say, Check" method: cover the answers, read the question, say the answer, uncover the answer to check if you got it right. If you didn't get it correct then say the correct answer out loud and write it down. Repeat for all questions until you are confident in all of them. Paper copies of Core Questions will be given out every half term and they will be available through the school website.
When you are given a new set of Core Questions, you will need to add them to your practice but you must continue to practise the old ones as well, so that you continue to remember them. All our Core Questions have been chosen because they are important both now and later in your study - so it is very important that you do not forget them once you have learned them.
When you have quizzes and tests on Core Questions, you will be asked about questions from any point, to make sure that you are revising and practising all your Core Questions and not just the most recent ones.
In years 7 and 8 you will receive a weekly quiz which will test your knowledge on the core questions that you have been learning each half term, from across a variety of subjects.
