What are knowledge organisers?
According to Third Space Learning
Knowledge organisers are a summary of the key facts and essential knowledge that pupils need about a unit of work or a curriculum subject. They should be no more than one side of A4 with all the information broken down into easily digestible chunks.
The single side of A4 is important in order to focus the minds of the teachers creating them so they only include what’s absolutely crucial. It is easy for knowledge organisers to become overwhelmingly full of information which then renders them useless.
Knowledge organisers can be used for any subject or year group, from the humanities such as history and English to maths and science.

Knowledge organisers are not a curriculum and they will never replace the expert teacher. It’s best to think of them as tools to help teachers enact a curriculum. This is the start of an article by Third Space Learning.
