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 starting with knowledge children should already know from previous learning. Each organiser also has a list of technical vocabulary with definitions.
Knowledge Organisers are sent home with children at the start of a topic/unit of work, revisited regularly in lessons and then used to assess the children's understanding at the end of a topic/unit of work.
