  • Using Short Feedback Loops to Improve Student Knowledge Retention and Recall

    Getting teenagers to revise effectively has always been difficult. Though, with so many entertainment options at their disposal nowadays, it can sometimes seem like a losing battle. Thanks to recent technological advancements, not only does the average teenager have a shorter attention span but they also have endless distractions. All these factors combined means it can be harder to get them to focus on written information in the first place, and then even harder to convince them to return to that information to test their knowledge.

    Thankfully, Daydream Education has come up with a double-pronged solution combining strong physical resources with short feedback loops to improve student knowledge retention.

    According to Wired magazine a feedback loop is “a profoundly effective tool for changing behaviour [in which you] provide people with information about their actions in real time, then give them an opportunity to change those actions, pushing them toward better behaviours.” The concept is simple. The shorter the feedback loops, the more often learners correct their behaviour and the faster they learn.

    The first prong of the Pocket Poster revision guides’ solution is their high-quality printed format. They are small in size but huge in content, fitting the whole curriculum contained in normal revision guides into a travel-ready, more accessible package. Designed in full-colour, strong paper and filled with engaging images and annotated diagrams, they are tailored to contain only the most essential information needed to master each school subject. At the same time, they are substantial enough to engage the brain’s sensory memory system.

    As people tend to retain more information from physical paper texts, this first port-of-call, according to a study conducted by Scientific American magazine, provides the learner with a strong yet accessible revision foundation.

    The second prong of their solution to revision comes in the form of the extra digital content Pocket Posters provide. Each book contains a code that learners can use to access a digital version of the book on a computer, tablet or phone – complete with a range of over 1,100 quiz questions to test their own knowledge. Questions are categorised into fluency, reasoning and problem solving to ensure students are being tested with all types of questions.

    Not only do these quizzes correct students so that they can find gaps in their own knowledge and improve their academic performance, but they can also help teachers track students’ progress. The Pocket Posters come with a teacher portal so educators can see their pupils’ progress and discover where there are common gaps in knowledge and, therefore, improve their own teaching practices. A similar tactic has recently been taken up by professors at Harvard University to improve their lesson plans.

    Such a revolutionary concept isn’t just a way to improve exam performance, either. It can also improve attitudes towards learning itself. A 2001 study conducted by Stanford University’s Albert Bandura concluded that “people are proactive, aspiring organisms” who crave information about themselves in order to improve. The short feedback loops incorporated into Pocket Posters tap into this natural instinct, turning revision into an interactive self-improvement game.

    Ultimately, Daydream Education’s Pocket Posters provide the best of both worlds – a strong, engaging print product and interactive digital content, all for a small price for schools on a budget.

  • Tackling KS2 SATs Season

    With SATs season fast approaching, the best way to prepare KS2 pupils is a focal point of discussion amongst teachers and parents alike.

    As SATs are likely to be the first formal exams pupils have undertaken, they can often cause unnecessary amounts of stress and pressure for many primary school students.

    Communicating the importance of structured revision and implementing effective preparation methods will help to alleviate pupils' concerns and ensure a positive mindset in regard to exams – something that will be beneficial both now and in future years.

    Why are SATs Needed?

    SATS, or Standard Assessment Tests, are used to evaluate pupils' educational progress throughout primary school and measure how much they've learnt, understood and remembered.

    From the school's perspective, SATs provide easy comparison between pupils' results and average attainment levels, allowing teachers to gage an understanding of pupils academic strengths and weaknesses.

    SATs can also help to determine which set a child will be placed in when he/she reaches secondary school, and the academic targets that should be aimed for.

    SAT results are also used by the Department for Education to create league tables, which rank schools by the number of students who achieve the expected standard in English and Maths.

    Why Should Pupils Revise for SATs?

    Every year, there are debates about whether SATs revision is suitable. After all, SATs are designed to be 'snapshots' of a child's academic aptitude and have no official 'pass' mark.

    However, with no structured revision, it's very unlikely that pupils will be able to perform to the best of their abilities. Therefore, sitting SATs with no preparation at all will not be an accurate reflection of their current understanding, or of the effectiveness of the school's teaching.

    Encouraging regular SATs revision over a sustained period will:

    • Teach pupils to take responsibility of their own learning.
      Communicating to pupils the importance of independent revision will help them to develop responsibility of their own learning. This is a fundamental skill that can then be built upon throughout secondary school.
    • Allow pupils to experiment with different revision techniques.
      As previously mentioned, SATs are likely to be the first real exams pupils will have had to revise for. Therefore, SATs season is the perfect time to allow pupils the freedom to trial different revision methods and find the approach which works best for them.
    • Lessen pupils' worries and ensure effective exam preparation.
      By openly discussing and inciting revision, any worries or misconceptions pupils have will be greatly diminished. Revising little and often well in advance of the exams will ensure students are well-equipped by the time May comes around.


    What's the Best Way to Prepare Pupils for SATs?

    The list below includes established techniques that will help all pupils to prepare effectively for their upcoming SATs.

    • Break down topics & practise, practise, practise.
      Breaking down revision into manageable chunks will help the workload to feel a lot lighter. This will better motivate pupils and ensure they don't become overwhelmed with the amount of revision they have. Regularly practising areas of weakness (and recapping areas of strength) will help pupils to build a broad knowledge of all topics across the key subjects of Maths and English.
    • Encourage the use of revision guides.
      An effective way to prepare pupils and inspire independent revision is to equip them with targeted KS2 revision guides. At Daydream Education, we offer KS2 Maths and English Pocket Posters that can be used to refresh pupils understanding of essential topics, from spelling, punctuation and homophones to times tables, averages and algebra!
    • Make use of past papers.
      Using past papers is a sure-fire way to ensure pupils' familiarity with the layout of the exam and the question types and command words that are likely to appear. The more accustomed pupils are with the style and content of the SAT exams, the less anxious, pressured or stressed they'll feel about the whole experience.
    • KS2 Pocket Posters

    This year's KS2 SATs are scheduled for the 14th – 17th May 2018.

    At Daydream Education, we wish all your pupils good luck!

    If you have any questions or would like to purchase any of our KS2 learning resources, feel free to get in touch.

  • How to Keep Pupils Safe Online

    It's no surprise that in today's digital world, primary and secondary students are using the Internet and social media more than ever before. With a wealth of information, games, images and videos readily available, the Internet is an incredibly useful and exciting tool that many young people have grown up with from an early age.


    However, the Internet can also pose very real threats to pupils' safety, that are often overlooked or ignored due to a lack of awareness.


    It is therefore vital to educate students and promote online safety throughout schools, so our pupils can be best prepared to recognise and react appropriately to any dangers they may face online.

    Ensure pupils understand digital risks

    Even though young people often have solid digital knowledge of how different sites, applications and technologies work, they may still lack a fundamental understanding of the risks these platforms can present.


    Cyberbullying, viewing explicit content, inappropriate contact from strangers, grooming and negative digital footprints are just a few of the potential implications of online activity, that could negatively affect both primary and secondary school students.


    By educating all pupils about digital dangers, they'll be better prepared to deal with situations in which they feel uncomfortable or threatened while online.

    Encourage open conversation

    An effective approach to ensuring pupils' understanding of Internet safety is to have honest discussions about the risks of the digital world, and how they can be combatted through different measures.


    For example:

    • Not sharing personal information online

    • Always being respectful toward others

    • Never accepting friend requests from strangers

    • Knowing what content is and is not suitable to post on social media

    • Practising password safety


    This will help to build a solid foundation of digital literacy skills and safe online behaviours throughout your school.


    A brilliant way to spark these types of open conversations is to display relevant and up-to-date digital safety information in the classroom.


    At Daydream Education, we have just released a brand-new range of primary and secondary Online Safety posters, that will inspire a whole school approach to digital safety.


    Covering vitally important digital safety topics, such as Online Bullying, Sexting and being Share Aware, the wall charts are ideal for promoting awareness and education in all schools.

    Safer Internet Day 2018

    A brilliant upcoming opportunity that can be enjoyed by both teachers and pupils alike is Safer Internet Day 2018.


    The global event, held on the 6th February, is designed to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.


    With the motto 'Create Connect and Share Respect: A better Internet starts with you', this years' Safer Internet Day is set to be the biggest and best yet.


    With a range of lesson plans and activities available, why not get involved in the national conversation?

    It's important that students know how to report anything that makes them feel uncomfortable online. Encourage understanding and open conversation of digital risks this Safer Internet Day with our comprehensive Online Safety posters.

  • 5 Tips to Make You a Better Maths Student

    Maths is often thought to be one of the hardest subjects to revise, but with a little thought and preparation, that doesn't have to be the case. Success in maths is certainly an achievable aim, particularly when the correct guidance is made easily available for all students.


    Below are 5 useful maths revision tips that both students and teachers can follow to improve learning, understanding and revision in maths.


    (1) Practise without a calculator.

    In exams, students can very often find that they run out of time. This could be a result of relying too heavily on a calculator, subsequently resulting in a lack of confidence when it comes to mental calculations. This can lead to wasted time and a negative impact on performance. By regularly practising mental arithmetic, students will be encouraged to forget the calculator when it comes to simple sums.


    (2) Use real-life examples for studying.

    A major barrier to understanding in maths is that students often struggle to comprehend how topics such as fractions, algebra, and Pythagoras' Theorem, can be used outside of the classroom. Of course, maths in itself, alongside the skills it develops; reasoning, critical thinking and problem solving to name a few, are integral to the functioning of daily life.


    To covey this to your class, real-life examples should be incorporated into both classwork and homework, so that students develop a greater understanding of the importance of maths and its role in the wider world.


    (3) Display posters with content that needs to be remembered.

    When it comes to learning maths, there are formulas, methods and rules that ideally, students should always keep in mind. Displaying visual reminders of relevant maths content will help students to grasp the most complex topics in small daily steps, without even realising that they're learning.


    (4) Encourage the completion of homework.

    Unfortunately, maths is not a topic that students can look over and immediately understand. Instead, success in maths requires daily practice, which can be guaranteed through effective homework. If small tasks are set on a regular basis, formulas and methods will be kept fresh in your students' minds, which could help to avoid the dreaded 'cramming' the night before a test or exam.


    Too many students give up on difficult exercises before even attempting to solve the problem, which is an attitude that can result in lost marks and lost opportunities for growth. Homework however, can encourage students to work through problems independently, and only ask their teacher, parent or private tutor for help if they're really struggling. This will build upon existing maths knowledge and increase students' confidence in their abilities.


    (5) Keep old lessons in mind.

    Another important aspect of effective maths homework is to include elements of topics taught earlier in the year, as well as what students are currently learning. As previously mentioned, maths formulas and their usage tend to be forgotten over time. This inevitably results in panic setting in when students realise that they must relearn everything for their end-of-year exams. To avoid this, try and include one or two exercises from some previously taught topics, so that every topic learned is revised at least once a month.


    By following the above top tips, students will feel confidently prepared for their exams and tests through effective homework, revision and learning techniques that are systematically implemented throughout the academic year.

  • 6 Simple Ways to Keep your Workplace Safe

    Health and safety at work is a well-known, yet often neglected aspect of running a business.


    Whether it's an office or a warehouse, a building site or a laboratory, both employers and employees have a responsibility to be aware of risks that could impact occupational health and safety.


    According to HSE statistics, 1.3 million people suffered a work-related illness in Britain in the year 2016/17.

    So, what can be done to ensure our workplaces are kept as safe as possible?


    (1) Promote a clean working environment.

    A clean and safe workplace sets the initial foundation for a successful working environment. Keeping work areas tidy, clearing obstructions, avoiding trailing cables and immediately cleaning up spills or leaks, will help to create a hazard-free workplace. Not only will this protect employees' safety, but it will also contribute to a more productive and motivated team.


    (2) Create an open culture of communication.

    In workplaces where there is a one-way funnel of communication from managers to employees, workers could be too afraid of speaking out or asking questions. Safety shouldn't be limited to a set of rules. Instead, health and safety should be part of a wider workplace culture, where all employees feel comfortable to voice their opinions and speak out about potential hazards.


    (3) Be aware of health and safety regulations.

    According to HSE, 31.2 million working days were lost due to work-related illnesses and workplace injuries in 2016/17. Awareness of workplace safety regulations can lead to the prevention of avoidable accidents that often cause lost working days. By ensuring both employers and employees are mindful of the most up-to-date guidelines, businesses can help to predict what could go wrong, before it happens.


    4) See something? Say something.

    On average, slips and trips cause almost 40% of all reported minor injuries in the workplace. However, most of these accidents can be prevented by simply recognising hazards and taking steps to reduce risks. In a workplace with an open safety culture, employees will feel comfortable to speak out when they see a problem, such as an obstruction, loose cables, or uneven flooring.


    (5) Ensure all employees are aware of their responsibilities.

    Employers are legally obligated to perform a risk assessment and provide a safe working environment for all staff. However, employees also have a responsibility to safeguard their own health. Becoming aware of hazards, refusing to take unnecessary risks and abiding by safety regulations will all increase the likelihood of good occupational health and safety.


    (6) Make important health and safety information easily accessible.

    A brilliant way to remind employees about the latest safety regulations is to clearly display important information. At Daydream Education, we have a brand new range of colourful and engaging Health and Safety posters that will help to ensure your employees know what to do in a workplace emergency, and are aware of occupational risks, hazards and symbols.



    Health and safety plays a significant role in the functioning of a successful workplace. Employers and employees should adopt a proactive attitude toward workplace safety, to ensure both the safeguarding of staff and the efficiency of the business itself.

  • The Benefits of Educational Learning Apps

    Twenty years ago, most pupils’ early experiences of IT in the classroom were limited to tapping out sentences on a stuttering old Acorn computer, or trying to draw wobbly pictures on Microsoft Paint with a computer mouse. Today, however, there is barely a classroom which doesn’t have a sleek display of iPads lined up at the side of the classroom, ready to assist with the day’s lesson. With Daydream now offering learning apps as well as our conveniently-sized pocket posters, why are more schools turning to digital tools to support their learning?

    Learning: anytime, anywhere.

    According to the International Telecommunication Union, more than 80% of the youth population are online in 104 countries.

    Online apps have made life more convenient for millions of users, and have granted access to a wealth of resources at the touch of a button. A study by the National Literacy Trust revealed that as many as 9 out of 10 children own a mobile device, and while it may not always be convenient to haul a rucksack full of heavy textbooks around 24/7, apps allow pupils to instantly access a wealth of learning material at school, at home, and on the go.


    Apps for active learning

    Too much screen time is often portrayed as a barrier to effective learning; the media often blames smartphones or tablets as a cause of lowered concentration and engagement with study. However, whilst too much time spent on social media or recreational games may hamper efforts to learn new information, the technological revolution has also created a whole new learning platform which is able to support a whole spectrum of different learning styles.

    Apps not only improve pupils’ IT skills, but encourage children to actively engage with and apply their classroom learning; for some pupils, this has made revision a whole lot easier if they struggle with passively reading information. With bright colours, sound, video and interactive quizzes, apps remove some of the main barriers of traditional ‘textbook’ learning.

    Targeting problem areas

    No doubt one of the biggest benefits of educational apps is the seamless interaction between pupils and teachers for tracking learning progress. In a class of 30 pupils, it may be difficult for a teacher to individually gauge pupils’ understanding of a topic, and any weaker areas may go unnoticed until a pupil either asks for help or struggles with related questions in an assessment setting.

    Apps can help teachers and pupils to identify early on which topic areas are in need of a little more work. For example, Daydream’s learning apps give teachers and pupils the opportunity to instantly track progress of key topic areas through the easy-to-use Reporting portal, making it easy for teachers to identify strengths and take note of any topics that need revisiting.

    A wealth of assessment questions

    There are only so many assessment questions that can go into a book, and getting plenty of assessment practice traditionally meant multiple expensive textbook purchases or photocopying. However, apps provide a wealth of assessment questions ready and available for download in just a few easy clicks.

    Daydream offers over 1,000 assessment questions per subject, meaning pupils will never be short of ways to challenge themselves and broaden their knowledge of key topics.


    Whilst textbooks will always have their place as a staple of the classroom and as a home revision tool, the added benefits of digital apps have certainly helped to pave the way to a more accessible, interactive and engaging future of blended learning.

    To try Daydream’s apps for free, please visit or enter the unique product code found inside each of our Pocket Poster books to sign up and gain full access to all 1,000 topic assessment questions and resources.

  • ‘But Rhymes are Boring!’ – Finding Fun in Poetry Workshops

    If you’ve ever taught poetry to a group of pupils and asked the question: “Who here likes poetry?”, you’ve no doubt experienced the one or two hands tentatively reach up amongst the collective sighs and dramatic eyerolls. This lacklustre response to poetry is a sad but clear reflection of the idea of poetry children have largely been exposed to; one that is often limited to the misconception that poetry is all strict metre, tightly-constructed verse and archaic, inaccessible language.

    When questioned at the start of creative writing workshops on why pupils dislike this literary form so much, the most common responses have included:

    • “It’s just boring.”
    • “I don’t like the old language.”
    • “Rhymes are annoying.”
    • “I don’t understand it.”

    Unfortunately, there still isn’t a wide enough variety of poetry being introduced to students at a young age. Why must children wait until much later to discover the incredible range of styles, themes and forms that poetry can take? Why do so many go into adulthood still believing that poetry is limited to hefty, archaic epics or the few funny limericks they once chanted on the playground? How many people are still under the impression that it's not a poem unless it rhymes? Whilst it’s great to see the likes of Owen Sheers, Rita Dove and Imtiaz Dharker featuring more widely on GCSE syllabuses alongside the traditional Emily Brontë and John Keats, there’s certainly more that needs to be done to get children discovering poetry at an age when they are more eager and inquisitive.

    How can we inspire a passion for poetry earlier in a pupils’ school life? Story-writing is often met with far more enthusiasm. Children are exposed to more fiction in general; whether that’s the bedtime stories they were read by their parents, the books that became blockbuster movies, or the hype of 'Pottermania' and The Hunger Games that made reading cool again. There was Roald Dahl, who delighted his readers through gruesome tales, and Roger Hargreaves whose charming Mr Men and Little Miss characters have endured in pocket-sized books and on staff room mugs for generations. Children are aware from a young age that when it comes to stories, there’s a style and a genre to suit most tastes.

    When teaching a poetry class, there are several things you can do to show them how poetry can appeal to a variety of tastes too:


    1) A new style every time - Aim to introduce children to a new style of poetry every week. In the same way that many classrooms have a designated carpet ‘story-time’, why not have a little bit of time every week to just hear a few poems on a particular style? Get your pupils involved. One week they could be looking for all the comic verse they can find (comedy verses are often the best way to get children's interest at first, particularly with younger classes who delight in humour) and the next they could be looking for sonnets, each sharing their favourite discoveries. Make sure there’s a good mix of both modern and old to demonstrate that old forms do not necessarily have to be restricted to old language; having a modern sonnet alongside a more traditional one will often help them understand and engage with both.

    2) Stand and deliver - From ancient fireside lyrics to lullabies and nursery rhymes, poetry was originally designed for the ear not the page. Deliver poetry in the way it’s meant to be delivered and see (or hear) the words spark into life. Rhythms, rhymes and even accents add a powerful dimension to poetry and the rise of the spoken word doesn’t have to be reserved for festivals and poetry slams. Show them videos of performed poetry and get them to try performing their favourites themselves (children’s laureate Michael Rosen, Benjamin Zephaniah and poet Joseph Coelho both have excellent resources on their YouTube channels perfect for Key Stage 2 poetry). This doesn’t necessarily have to be limited to ‘silly’ poems; more serious and important messages can be expressed through the power of verse too, and reading aloud often maximises the impact.

    3) Create, create, create! - Whether it’s constructing cut-up poems using an eclectic spread of words picked from the centre of the table or the challenge of writing to a theme (e.g. an October poetry-writing class could focusing on the scariest and most inventive adjectives to create a spine-chilling verse), the possibilities are endless. Nothing gives a child a greater boost of self-esteem and confidence than creating something themselves, and it’s a great way to get them actively building each other up through positive and constructive peer feedback.

    As you teach your workshops, you will find more inventive ways to incorporate poetry into your lessons and find yourself being just as creative with your teaching as children are with their writing. Follow the steps above and soon those few tentative hands at the beginning of class will give way to a confident chorus of enthusiasm.

  • See How Fell Dyke Primary School is Promoting Online Safety With Our Help!

    As part of our ongoing focus on online safety in school, we have promoted the use of the SMART online safety rules over the last few years. Despite SMART rules posters being displayed prominently in all classrooms and communal areas, last year, following discussions with pupils, we recognised that whilst most of our children in Key Stage 2 were familiar with what the SMART acronym stood for, they were not entirely sure of the meaning. In fact, some of our younger children were unfamiliar with the SMART rules altogether.

    During some consultancy work with Martin Bailey, a local ICT consultant, we were impressed to see the SMART posters that Daydream Education had produced for Martin's school. As a result, we launched a whole school competition which involved the children designing their own SMART rules posters. The standard of work produced was very high and selecting just one winning design from KS1 and one from KS2 was difficult.

    It was great to see how the children had interpreted the rules and expressed them in more age-appropriate language. Finally, the two winning designs were selected, celebrated and submitted to Daydream Education who did a fantastic job in keeping the children's designs but 'professionalising' them and producing the high quality posters we now have on display today. A2 sized posters are displayed in every classroom and referred to every time any form of online technology is used by the children. A2-sized KS1 and KS2 SMART posters are also displayed prominently in communal areas throughout school: entrance area, hall, corridors and Media Suite. In addition, smaller A3 posters feature on all of the trolleys of laptops and iPads just to serve as an extra reminder!
    We have found a huge increase in children's knowledge and understanding of the SMART online safety rules. We attribute this to the fact that, following the poster design campaign and competition, the children now have ownership of the rules and the large eye-catching posters have meaning and appeal.

    We place such a high emphasis on the SMART rules that they feature in our home-school contract and in our school prospectus. Mrs Jade Wallace (Computing Lead Teacher and Upper KS2 Phase Leader)
