Knowledge Organisers

What is a knowledge organiser?

A knowledge organiser is a document, usually no more than two sides of A4, that contains key facts and information that children need to have a basic knowledge and understanding of a topic.

Most knowledge organisers will include:

  • essential knowledge about a topic or concept, usually laid out in easily digestible chunks
  • key vocabulary or technical terms and their meanings associated with the key concept or topic
  • quality images such as maps, diagrams and photographs
  • features such as a timeline
  • famous quotations, if relevant.

Pupils should use knowledge organisers to self-quiz, prepare for assessments and revise key information.
