Remembering Learning - Knowledge Organisers

Knowledge Organisers in RE


It is important that the children know where they are heading and have the key information to help them on this learning journey.


The Knowledge Organisers do this job (example right): they provide the children with an outline of the new knowledge and some reminders about what they have already learnt. Although one Knowledge Organiser may differ from another, each shows the children what they are going to be learning, hold the key facts or information needed and a glossary of the main technical vocabulary for the unit. Information may be communicated through text, pictures, maps, photos, symbols, etc. 


Knowledge Organisers may contain symbols that relate to key concepts or knowledge categories which run through units and through the year groups (like the one for 'Incarnation to the right). The children are familiar with these and also have reminders in their books for quick reference. Please see the RE policy for further information.


Knowledge Organisers (KO) may have additional wider references, such as to literature, the arts, environmental issue and so on (see right). On occasion, they may also contain, for example, a QR code, an envelope with information (see left) or resources needed for future lessons - each additional aspect is to ensure that the Knowledge Organisers stay relevant and engaging each time a child begins a new unit. 


Please see below to access each KO; your child's teacher will also use these to ensure that the learning continues to be progressive and to check that prior learning supports new learning opportunities.
