PICK OF THE WEEK: New way to remember things better

A teacher from Brighton has come up with a new way of learning which can help kids remember things better. Jonathan Hancock, a former World Memory Champion and a Grand Master of Memory, has been trying out the new techniques in his class. His trick is to turn everything they learn into a story, and pupils in his class say it’s a fun way of learning. It’s been so successful for them that schools around the country are also being encouraged to try it out. Mr Hancock says his way of teaching makes it really easy to remember absolutely anything — even Japanese. He turns stuff the children learn into pictures, to make things easier to remember.
