A Knowledge Organiser contains the basic information a student should know for each subject by the end of year. It should be out on the desk in every lesson.
Students should try to learn the key information on the knowledge organiser throughout the year
The teacher will tell the student which part of the information the student will need to learn
Over the year the student will build-up the knowledge learnt, and will be tested on this knowledge.
The student may also use the Knowledge Organiser in class to help identify key information or skills.
In Year 7 and 8, everyone has every subject, except for Spanish
In Year 9, Spanish and Option choices will be added during lessons
RE will also provide GCSE Knowledge Organisers in lessons
Maths have a full booklet of learning Maths, which your Knowledge Organisers refer to.
Students have a paper copy of the Knowledge Organisers
There is also a copy on Show My Homework.
Teachers will regularly set a Knowledge Organiser based home learning activity. This will depend on how often they see students each fortnight., but it will be roughly every other home learning activity
The aim of the Knowledge Organiser home learning activities is to show the student has learned the information by achieving a pass rate set by the teacher, however if the student does not pass the teacher will tell the student what they expect to see as evidence of having done home learning, one example may be flash cards.
