What are knowledge organisers and what are their benefits?
A Knowledge Organiser is a go-to document for a topic/unit of work that provides a "bigger picture." Each one identifies the key facts and information that children need to have learned by the end of a topic. We want children to gain specific knowledge and skills over time. Knowledge organisers play a useful role here as they focus on one subject or topic and grow in complexity over the year groups, building on the children's prior learning. They also act as a tool to support children in making links, retaining and retrieving knowledge for life-long learning.
We have developed our own Knowledge Organisers to support the delivery of the Curriculum, Each organiser poses questions, includes key content and provides a list of technical vocabulary with definitions. These are matched carefully to the year group and collectively, provide a clear progression in knowledge and skills. Copies of our progression maps are available in school.
