The pedagogical approach for teaching Year 3 students about London's status as the capital city of the United Kingdom is structured to enhance their retention and understanding of the subject matter. This approach, developed by Focus Education (UK) Ltd, is a systematic method designed to help pupils know more and remember more through a five-stage learning process: 'link it, learn it, check it, show it, and know it (make it stick)'. This progression framework is applied to ensure that the learning is coherent and cumulative.

Before the learning begins, students are encouraged to 'link it' by connecting new information to their existing knowledge. As the lesson unfolds, the 'learn it' phase involves actively engaging with the new content about why London is the UK's capital. The 'check it' stage allows for assessment and consolidation of understanding, while 'show it' provides an opportunity for students to demonstrate their learning. Finally, the 'know it (make it stick)' phase ensures that the information is deeply embedded in the students' memory. This progression within the unit is designed to be revisited after the initial learning to reinforce knowledge retention, as outlined in the 'Five stages of learning and remembering' document available on the Focus Learning Challenge website.
