A Parent’s Guide to Knowledge Organisers
At Shaftesbury School, all our subject departments create knowledge organisers to support each unit of learning across Key Stage 3. These are then compiled into a booklet for each student to use. Knowledge Organisers are a simple tool that provides the necessary knowledge required for each particular unit.
Students are expected to spend 30 minutes per subject (2 subjects per night) which total 1 hour. Students are given a clear timetable at the front of their Knowledge Organiser which tells them the two subjects they are expected to work on per night. This is in addition to reading for 35 minutes – see below for more detail.
