Practise, Consolidate, Reinforce

Practise, Consolidate, Reinforce plays a pivotal role in children's school education. Regular practise helps solidify concepts and skills, ensuring a deeper understanding and mastery of subjects. Consolidation enables students to connect previous knowledge with new information, fostering a holistic understanding of the curriculum. Reinforcement reinforces learning, bolstering confidence and long-term retention, paving the way for academic success and lifelong learning.



Practise is a fundamental aspect of effective learning and skill development. Practise allows children to apply and reinforce the concepts they have learned. By practicing problems and exercises, they gain a deeper understanding and develop proficiency in solving similar problems.

Regular practise helps children retain information and enhances their ability to recall it when needed. By revisiting and reviewing concepts, they strengthen their memory and ensure long-term retention.

Practise enables children to develop essential skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and time management. These skills are transferable to various aspects of their academic and personal lives, equipping them for future success.



Consolidation involves reinforcing and solidifying knowledge and skills acquired through practise. It plays a vital role in a child's educational journey.

This helps children make connections between different concepts and topics and enables them to foster a deeper understanding. Through consolidation, children integrate new information with their existing knowledge to promote critical thinking and analytical skills.

By consolidating their learning, they develop a structured mental framework that allows for easier retrieval and application of knowledge, and enhances problem-solving abilities by enabling children to recognise patterns and apply relevant strategies.


Reinforcement serves as a bridge between practise and consolidation. It involves reviewing and revisiting previously learned material to reinforce understanding and prevent forgetting.

Through reinforcement, children reinforce their knowledge over time. Regularly revisiting concepts solidifies understanding and ensures that the knowledge remains accessible and readily available for future learning. Reinforce helps children deepen their understanding and knowledge.

Reinforcement helps children to identify any gaps or areas of weakness in their understanding; allowing them to seek clarification, ask questions, and engage in targeted practise to address those gaps.

Promotes scaffolding learning

Our workbooks encourage scaffolding learning to ensure that students are continuously building upon their knowledge as they progress throughout the academic year, helping them to be more independent in their learning.

Monitor student progress

Continuous assessment is catered for through review tests, assessment resources and student record sheets in our workbooks, so you can identify areas of improvement needed within the entire class or individual students.
