Knowledge Organisers

A Knowledge Organiser is a go-to document for a unit of work: each one identifies the key information that children need to have learned by the end of a topic. It also acts as a tool to support children in retaining and retrieving knowledge for life-long learning.

We have developed our own Knowledge Organisers to support the delivery of the Geography, History and Science curriculums, with each one starting with knowledge children should already know from previous learning. Each organiser also has a quiz to help children recall the knowledge and a list of technical vocabulary with definitions. They also contain a list of key 'skills' to be developed throughout the units including researching, observing, analysing and comparing. These are matched carefully with the year group and there is clear progression in the skills. Copies of the skills progression maps are available in school.
