Revision is vital for exam success but is not the easiest to get done at home with so many distractions. Children must also learn to manage their workload and stay organised which requires a space that allows them to do so. In this post we share tips from a private school in London on how you can create the perfect study environment for your child.
Noise is possibly one of the hardest things to work through. If your child’s room or study space is at a busy part of the house, you may need to consider setting up a space elsewhere so that they can give their work their full concentration and focus. This should ideally be somewhere away from doorways and busy parts of the house such as the living room. That could be your garden shed or summer house. Alternatively, you can find a means of noise cancellation such as headphones they can use to study.
A desk is one of the most important parts of kit they will need as they will need somewhere that they can sit up right, lay out their notes and work comfortably. Also, a comfortable chair is a must as during exam season they will likely spend a lot of time at their desk.
To ensure that none of their work is lost and everything is accessible, invest in storage systems for their study space such as shelving, cabinets, and folders.
Lighting has a huge role in our energy levels, motivation, and of course, our ability to see what we are doing. This space should ideally have ample natural lighting.
These are just a few ideas we’ve put together. Before putting anything in place, we recommend that you consult with your child to see what will work best for them.
