Carbeile Junior School


At Carbeile we firmly believe that children should be able to remember key pieces of knowledge or key skills in every topic taught.  To that end, we have introduced KIRFs (Key Instant Recall Facts) to develop children’s long term memory.  These are written by the children as they come to an important fact or skill within their topic and then compiled by the classteacher at the end of the topic.  These are then sent home for parents to see and sent up to the teachers in the next year group so that these KIRFs can be constantly revisited.  Have a look at some of the KIRFs from the first topics from this year.  There is also a set of KIRFs for each maths half term.
