hi Sryia! some children are not serious and have their mind into so many other things like sports ,co-curricular activities, drawing , peer group , gadgets etc.. hence they don't pay attention to small things and easily forget ..it's advisable to allot her a separate study table with minimum distraction around. here is a blog with handy tips on how to improve memory. Hey! I find this parent blog really interesting. I suggest you have a look too: https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/10-playful-ways-to-improve-memory-in-children/702?ptref=sa0l000030g00ji

Hi Sriya, Ensure she doesn't do rote memorization. Help her understand what she reads. Before making her read her notes, ask open ended questions on the topic to make her think about the topic. Focus on "why" and "how" questions rather than on what when who and where.
