We use Knowledge Organisers (KOs) in class and as homework to help children to learn the essential knowledge they need for each topic they study. A KO sets out in detail what we want children to know by heart by the end of the topic. We expect the majority of children to be able to recall all of the information on the KO by the end of the unit of work.
The children will be able to talk to you about the section they are learning about that week so you can practise at home. The children will be tested on these in class to help them remember what they are learning - this will be very much high challenge, low threat testing (so not marked, in backs of books.) This allows children to self-assess their learning and to pick up on parts they haven't fully learned yet.
It is also useful for children to go back to previous KOs and revise these so that the information from previous learning is not forgotten.
