Knowledge organisers

A Knowledge Organiser is a go-to document for a topic/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 curriculum, with each one clearly detailing how skills and knowledge are built upon to ensure that pupil's learning is relevant and long-lasting. Each organiser has 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 groups and there is clear progression in the skills. Copies of the skills progression maps are available in the related subject areas of our website.
