What are Knowledge organisers?
Knowledge organisers are a summary of the key facts and essential knowledge that your child needs to know about the unit of work they are going to study. They are not normally more than two sides of A4 with all the information broken down into easily digestible chunks. This design enables students to memorise the information better. Learning these facts will help them make greater progress with their learning, they are also a great tool for their revision too.
Why do we use Knowledge organisers?
For students to succeed and understand in detail the unit of work they are studying, they must have a solid foundation of factual knowledge. They should be able to understand those facts in the context of the unit of work and most importantly be able to organise the knowledge in their minds so they can retrieve it when required. Knowledge organisers are a proven method of improving students’ long-term memory.
