At St Barnabas CEVC Primary School, we use Knowledge Organisers to help children to learn the essential knowledge they need for each topic they study. A Knowledge Organiser sets out in detail the essential information that children should know and understand by the end of the topic. It also acts as a tool to support children in retaining and retrieving knowledge for life-long learning.
We have developed our Knowledge Organisers to support the delivery of the curriculum, with each one starting with the knowledge children should already have from previous learning. Each Knowledge Organiser also has a quiz to help children recall the knowledge, vocabulary, terms and definitions.
As well as learning the knowledge from the current topic, it is also useful for children to go back to previous Knowledge Organisers and re-read and revise these so that the information from previous learning is not forgotten.
