Knowledge Organiser


Knowledge Organisers should be used to support your child throughout the topic being covered. They provide dates, key vocabulary, key facts and important information that will be covered. Children will use these both in school and at home to supplement their learning, allowing us to work collaboratively together.


Knowledge Organisers are designed to help with our current home learning packs, they provide additional support and direction for families whilst learning at home. They can be used as a point of reference for year group knowledge and expectations within the given topic area.  See below this terms knowledge organiser for our Geography topic.
