At Oyster Park Primary Academy, we have developed our own Knowledge Organisers drawing on recent educational research to support the delivery of the curriculum. Each knowledge organiser contains key information and visual references to support our pupils to learn and retain key knowledge and information. Each organiser also has an accompanying quiz, which is regularly taken by the children in school to help children recall the key knowledge from each Unit of work.
What is a ‘Knowledge Organiser’?
Knowledge organisers are a whole school resource (Year 1 to Year 6) we have introduced to support long term learning.
A knowledge organiser is a generally a one-page summary of the key knowledge of a particular unit of study within a subject. They specify what pupils will need to successfully learn by the end of a unit of study. They can be used to get an overview of a new topic, be referred to during a topic for key points, spellings and meanings and used home to consolidate learning. It also acts as a tool to support children in retaining and retrieving knowledge for life-long learning.
How do they help children?
They provide the essential knowledge that children need to cover in the Unit shared at the beginning so children know what they are going to be learning.
Knowledge Organisers help them to remember key dates, key people, key events, subject specific vocabulary and definitions as well as key concepts. They support and improve pupils ability to remember.
How do they help parents?
Parents will have a better understanding of what the children need to know. They will allow parents to build on their knowledge at home and provide an easy tool for parents to quiz children at home and provide a talking point for their child’s curriculum learning.
