At KLA we deem it is important to set about making excellent progress in your child’s learning by reinforcing crucial knowledge beyond the classroom. To help structure this important aspect of their learning pupils have access to Knowledge Organisers for all subject areas. The Knowledge Organisers will help your son/daughter to learn a wide range of knowledge to prepare them for lessons, low/high stake assessments and GCSE public examinations, and the world of work when used appropriately, consistently and in structured time. Knowledge Organisers encourage pupils to be independent when developing knowledge. Each half term pupils will receive a booklet, which comprises of Knowledge Organisers and the Journey for all subjects in the curriculum. Moreover, this booklet is available on the school website and emailed to parents.
Why Knowledge Organisers?
The GCSE specifications have a greater focus on application, reasoning and evaluation skills. This leaves less time in class to focus on ‘the bits they just have to know’. If knowledge retention is improved, this will have a positive impact on levels of attainment and achievement.
