What is a Knowledge Organiser?
A knowledge Organiser is a document, usually one side of A4, that contains key facts and information that children need to have a basic knowledge and understanding of for a topic or unit of work. Knowledge Organisers will capture the key information and vocabulary for a topic.
At Rowena Academy our Knowledge Organisers are presented in a clear and simple format making them accessible for both children and adults. They set out what children can expect to learn in a topic and what they should know by the end. They list key facts and information that children will learn throughout the topic. They also list key facts and information, that children should already know from previous learning.
Research shows that our brains remember things more efficiently when we know the ‘bigger picture’ and can see the way that little pieces of knowledge within that subject area link together. Making links, essentially, helps information move into our long-term memory.
