Our Curriculum Knowledge Organisers

 

The acquisition of pupil knowledge and vocabulary within the curriculum is supported by Knowledge Organisers. Knowledge organisers provide key facts and vocabulary relevant to topics and build upon prior learning. We recognise that the acquisition of knowledge and the development of skills is interdependent, and the curriculum is designed to provide opportunities to revisit learning in a variety of different contexts. Curriculum content is ordered in such a way that children will remember and connect the steps they have been taught. As new knowledge, skills and understanding are acquired; children build on prior learning and make connections across and within curriculum areas. We have developed our own Knowledge Organisers to support the delivery of the curriculum. A Knowledge Organiser is a go-to document for a topic/unit of work: each one identifies the key information that children need to have learned by the end of a topic. It also acts as a tool to support children in retaining and retrieving knowledge for life-long learning. Our teachers produce bespoke Knowledge Organisers for the children in their care, which also identify parental involvement, quality texts matched to the topic and subject specific information e.g. timelines on history topics. We understand the importance of teaching vocabulary across the day and across the curriculum as vocabulary levels are strong predictors of later literacy skills. We therefore have a whole school approach to the teaching of vocabulary and teach vocabulary across all ages and all subjects. So our subject specific Knowledge Organisers also identify the key vocabulary the children will be taught in each class during their topic work.
