Knowledge Organisers

Knowledge Organisers - Junior department

What is a Knowledge Organiser? 

A knowledge organiser contains all the important information from a particular topic, summarised in just a few pages. It includes keywords, important facts, diagrams, methods and skills relating to the topic. Currently we have Knowledge Organisers for : History and Geography (one subject is taught each half term), Science, Computing , French, Music and PSHE (PSHE must be requested from the class teacher due to copyright).

Why is it useful?

A Knowledge Organiser helps students to organise the content they need to learn. This makes it easier for them to remember the information and access the facts from their memory when they need to answer an exam question. 

How can it be used? 

The more memories are used, the stronger the memory becomes and the easier it is to access. For students, this means regular practice at retrieving the facts they have learnt and using them in a variety of ways. They could play games with the information, explain the facts to someone, apply the information to a new situation or organise the knowledge organiser into a different format. 

How can I help? 

The Knowledge Organiser contains all the facts needed to test someone on the content from a topic. This is great because it means you can help someone revise content even if you haven’t studied it yourself!

Please contact your class teacher if you have any questions about Knowledge Organisers.
