Knowledge Organiser Autumn 1
What are knowledge organisers?
A knowledge organiser is a set of key facts or information that pupils need to know and be able to recall in order to master a unit or topic. Typically, an organiser fits onto a double sided A4 piece of paper.
How will a knowledge organiser help my child?
Knowledge organisers will be made available at the start of each unit to help them remember what they are learning and to help them to see the bigger learning journey in their subjects. Instead of forgetting previous learning, students will continually revisit and retrieve prior learning from their memories. The current knowledge organiser is always displayed in the classroom and referred to frequently. Previous knowledge organisers and examples of children's work are kept in an accessible scrapbook that the children can look back at during the year. At the end of the unit the knowledge organiser is used as the basis of a fun quiz to ascertain how much we know, that we didn't know before.
How will a knowledge organiser help me to help my child?
Many parents/carers ask us how they can help to support their children at home. Many are worried that they do not have all of the subject specific knowledge to be able to help their children. The knowledge organiser highlights key terms and knowledge that will be taught at school, which you can talk about at home. Please feel free to upload any evidence to Seesaw (photo's, recordings etc) that show whether your child is demonstrating this knowledge at home too.

Monday 29th June 2020 - Marvellous Me!
This week you will receive a special package in the post. Just for you! Inside the envelope there will be a very special bag and an activity book. This is your 'Marvellous Me' bag. We would like you to put your name on it (written or spelt out using stickers etc) and decorate it with anything you like. Just like you, your bag will be unique and unlike anyone else's. When you have decorated it please fill it with some items that you would like to share with us in the first half term of reception class. Often people pop in photograph's of their family, information about favourite places, a toy they would like to show, a favourite storybook, a badge, medal or certificate for any achievements, a drawing they have done, something they have made. This is not a checklist, it really is up to you what you decide to include. You can put in as much or little as you like - but it must be able to fit in the bag. You will then bring this in with you when you start in September. You will be able to show a friend, teacher, small group or the whole class dependent upon how confident you are feeling. We can't wait to find out more about you. Parents: This is a fantastic activity as the bag contains things your child treasures. These are the things they are most likely to feel confident and animated talking about. It is a great icebreaker and a great way to share information with others. We average 1 or 2 a day so it can take 4 weeks to ensure everyone has their turn. BUT everyone will get a turn. Bags and contents will be stored safely and taken home after they have been shared. Last year, every child put a photo of themselves with their family in the bag. This enabled us to make a lovely display, in the home corner, that children could go to - and see a familiar face. It would be great if you were able to do the same thing. We will of course return the photos once the display is taken down.
