At West Walsall E-ACT Academy we pride ourselves on using the most recent research to inform our teaching practice. We introduced Knowledge Organisers into academy practice in September 2019.
A Knowledge Organiser is the collation of key learning content for a given topic.
Knowledge Organisers are used within prep time to promote retrieval and recall and to support the development of the long term memory and retention of key information. Students also use Knowledge Organisers within their lessons to support independent practice and promote self-regulation. Students are encouraged to complete 20 minutes per evening of routine homework, replicating their prep time practice following the academy programme of study. Below you will find our current Knowledge Organisers categorised by Key Stages and Terms. We will update our Knowledge Organisers as we continue to review and develop our curriculum.
