Knowledge Organisers

“The knowledge organiser is the beating heart of each unit, with the core content meticulously curated and itemised to clarify the necessary (but not sufficient) knowledge to develop a sophisticated schema for each unit of work.”

Jon Hutchison, Reach Academy Feltham​

As part of our ongoing curriculum development, the staff team have piloted Knowledge Organisers for history and geography themes taught since the spring term 2022.

Knowledge Organisers can be used in many ways; at All Saints’ we aim to develop them to support:

  • the planning and prioritisation of the most important knowledge for each subject taught
  • pupils and staff to quiz themselves and others on this knowledge
  • opportunities for retrieval practice
  • strengthening links (schema building) between concepts

Our ultimate aim is maximise opportunities for learning to ‘stick’, facilitating deeper understanding and long-term retention of knowledge.
