St John’s is delivering The Meta-Package, a series of lessons on neuroscience, memory and self-regulation with an accompanying language for learning present in all lessons, to Year 7 pupils. They will investigate whether this intervention can increase pupil progress, especially for disadvantaged learners.
14 month project. Report due September 2018

Spaced Learning EEF Project
Throughout 2016 St John’s was involved in phase 2 of the feasibility Study for the Spaced Learning Project. The project was joint funded by the EEF and the Wellcome trust as part of their Neuroscience and Education round. The Hallam Teaching School Alliance was running the project from Sheffield in conjunction with Queen’s University Belfast. The remit was to look into the potential that putting in purposeful spaces (filled with Juggling practice in our phase) between learning cycles. We trialled this with two year 10 classes throughout a series of 3 lessons in each of Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Our variant was to trial 20 minute learning sequences with 10 minute spaces filled with Juggling practice. Dr Patrick Stark from Queen University flew in twice especially to meet the students and carry out the pre and post testing required to test spaced learning. Phase 2 is now complete and we are looking to take part in the third phase next year.
