Miss Nugent is Head of Spanish at The Perse Upper School. She has been involved in a number of research projects since joining the school in 2016 and is currently undertaking a Perse Research Award. Her research concerns recent changes to the homework timetable and how best to adapt vocabulary learning to this new format. Her full report is available here.
“I want to investigate the implications of the homework timetable changes from an MFL perspective, with a particular focus on vocabulary learning and the intervals needed to maximise long-term recall. By combining the findings of the homework review group, the research undertaken in MFL by Miss Freeman on vocabulary learning methods, and my own research, I will be able to give further recommendations for homework strategies within the department, and also the wider school in terms of managing the overall homework timetable in years 7 and 8.”
