    Memory is extremely important to learning, and various types of memory can be identified:-  (Select Three) 

    • A.

      Working memory

    • B.

      Dysfunctional memory

    • C.

      Short term memory

    • D.

      Long term memory

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Working memory
    C. Short term memory
    D. Long term memory
    Explanation
    Memory is crucial for learning as it allows us to retain and retrieve information. Working memory refers to the temporary storage and manipulation of information while engaged in a task. Short-term memory is the ability to hold a small amount of information for a short period of time. Long-term memory is the storage of information over an extended period, allowing for retrieval at a later time. Dysfunctional memory is not a recognized type of memory and does not fit within the context of the question. Therefore, the correct answers are working memory, short-term memory, and long-term memory.

    A child that struggles with fine motor skills may find it hard to hold an ordinary pen or pencil, or a knife and fork, they might struggle to colour pictures within the lines, to use scissors, or tie their own shoelaces. Running and jumping may be hard, too.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A child who struggles with fine motor skills may find it difficult to perform tasks that require precise control of their small muscles, such as holding a pen or pencil, using utensils, coloring within the lines, using scissors, or tying shoelaces. This can also affect their ability to run and jump, as these activities require coordination and control of their larger muscles. Therefore, the statement that a child with fine motor skill difficulties may find it hard to perform these tasks is true.

    A classically dyslexic learner is likely to have poor comprehension skills but good skills in decoding, however older pupils and adults may appear to present differently, due to their inexperience with texts in general.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that older pupils and adults with dyslexia may not necessarily have poor comprehension skills. While it is true that dyslexic learners typically struggle with reading and decoding, their comprehension skills can vary. Older individuals may have developed compensatory strategies to overcome their reading difficulties, allowing them to have good comprehension skills despite their dyslexia. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Decoding skills are underpinned by phonic knowledge, and refers to the term 'phonological awareness' which is divided into sub-areas:-     (Select Four)

    • A.

      Language sounds

    • B.

      Rhyming

    • C.

      Sound blending

    • D.

      Phoneme manipulation.

    • E.

      Muscles skills

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Language sounds
    B. Rhyming
    C. Sound blending
    D. Phoneme manipulation.
    Explanation
    Decoding skills, which involve the ability to sound out and read words, are supported by phonic knowledge. Phonological awareness, which is the ability to recognize and manipulate the sounds in language, is divided into several sub-areas. These sub-areas include language sounds, which refers to the ability to recognize and differentiate between different sounds in language; rhyming, which involves identifying and producing words that have similar ending sounds; sound blending, which is the ability to combine individual sounds to form words; and phoneme manipulation, which involves manipulating individual sounds within words. Muscles skills, while important for speech production, are not directly related to decoding skills and phonological awareness.

    The aim of phonics teaching is to assist children with learning and using the ________ principle, which is the understanding that there are predictable and systematic relationships between written symbols (letters) and sounds that are spoken.

    • A.

      Alphabetic

    • B.

      Numerical

    Correct Answer
    A. Alphabetic
    Explanation
    Phonics teaching aims to help children learn and apply the alphabetic principle. This principle refers to the understanding that there are consistent and organized connections between written letters and the sounds they represent. By teaching phonics, children can develop the ability to decode and read words accurately, as well as spell words correctly. The alphabetic principle is fundamental to building strong reading and writing skills.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Dyscalculics often struggle with quantity, making it difficult for them to understand and work with numbers. However, they may excel in understanding spoken language and have better visual abilities. This suggests that the statement is true.

    Some dyspraxic children may find it difficult to copy from the board because their eyes don’t allow them to focus on a near object and then a far one immediately afterwards, this is called ‘repositioning gaze’.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Dyspraxic children may struggle with copying from the board due to a condition called "repositioning gaze." This means that their eyes have difficulty shifting focus from a near object to a far one quickly. As a result, they may have trouble visually processing information from the board and transferring it onto their own paper. Therefore, the statement "Some dyspraxic children may find it difficult to copy from the board because their eyes don't allow them to focus on a near object and then a far one immediately afterwards, this is called 'repositioning gaze'" is true.

    Collaboration and sharing of __________ between parents and teachers is essential to the learning success of a dyspraxic child because it means that what is taught at school can be underpinned at home.

    • A.

      Skills

    • B.

      Information

    • C.

      Knowledge

    Correct Answer
    B. Information
    Explanation
    Collaboration and sharing of information between parents and teachers is essential to the learning success of a dyspraxic child because it allows for consistent support and reinforcement of what is being taught at school. By sharing information, parents and teachers can ensure that they are on the same page regarding the child's learning needs, strategies, and progress. This collaboration helps create a cohesive learning environment, where the child receives consistent guidance and support both at school and at home.
