Knowledge Organisers And Home Learning

 

What is a Knowledge Organiser? 

A knowledge organiser (KO) is a document that contains key facts and information that students need to have a basic knowledge and understanding of in a topic. It is no more than 2 sides of an A4 sheet.

 

Depending on the topic KO’s may include: 

  • Essential facts about a topic, usually laid out in easily digestible chunks 
  • Key vocabulary or technical terms and their meanings 
  • Images such as maps or diagrams 
  • Famous quotations, if relevant 
  • Timelines and key dates

 

Where to find the Knowledge Organisers

  1. Students will be issued with paper copies in a folder each term that they can take home.
  2. Students have access to a shared folder on their google drive that contains knowledge organisers for their year group, and past years. They can access this using their school email address.

 

How to use the Knowledge Organisers

Here are 4 steps on how to teach students how to use this resource: 

  1. Look – at a small section (read it over and over in your head) 
  2. Cover – one side you have been reading and copying 
  3. Write – as much as you can remember of the whole section without looking back 
  4. Check – with green pen to ensure 100% accuracy – spellings, order of words. 

 

Each time there is a mistake or spelling mistake – try again.  We want students to use the process above at home on their own, with parents and siblings.
