At Lowerplace we use Knowledge Organizers in class and at home to help children to learn the essential knowledge they need for each topic they study. A Knowledge Organizer sets out in detail what we want children to know by heart by the end of the topic. Each Knowledge Organizer contains a Vocabulary Dozen, which is a collection of 12 key terms that children will learn related to their topic of study. We expect the majority of children to be able to recall all of the information on the Knowledge Organiser by the end of the topic. Through the use of quizzing and games, we support children to build up their knowledge of their topic of study each week. To assess the children’s understanding, we use quizzes before and after the topic, as well as enable children to apply what they have learnt through a written piece.
