Knowledge Organiser Key Terms

Key terms

  • Knowledge Organisers contain only the most vital knowledge students need to memorise in a half term. It is broken up into subjects and individual boxes to show what students need to memorise each week. Each half term students will receive a printed booklet containing Knowledge Organisers for each subject for that half term. This contains all the knowledge students need to commit to their long term memory. Not all subjects will be represented in the Knowledge Organiser booklet which is a conscious decision on the academy’s part.
  • Knowledge Retrievers are an A5 book that students complete their knowledge organiser homework in.
  • Fetch, Flip, Check and Repeat is the process that students use to do their knowledge organiser homework in their Knowledge Retrievers. Students do not write down the answers to the questions found in the Knowledge Organiser boxes. The questions at the bottom of the box are for students, parents and carers to know what questions students will answer as part of a low stakes quiz in lessons.
  • Silent Do Now This is a silent, independent, task that focuses on students recalling knowledge that they have learnt previously. Its aim is to stop students forgetting key knowledge that they will need for their exams. So questions may be based on content from last lesson, last topic, last term or even prior years.
  • A homework Low Stakes Quiz occurs when a teacher incorporates the questions from the knowledge organiser box into the Silent Do Now task at the beginning of a lesson. Low Stakes Quizzes are not a test where students pass or fail and get told off. They are just an opportunity for students and teachers to see, each week, how well students have done in remembering the key facts in the subjects they are learning and if they can apply them. 
  • Fluency Task This is a short task that allows teachers to check if students can link and apply the knowledge from their Low Stakes Quiz.
  • The BIG Quiz is a large multiple-choice test that students will sit in exam conditions. It is low stakes so there is no pass or fail bench mark. However, it is an opportunity to get feedback on how much of the most vital knowledge students have managed to commit to their long-term memory.
  • Overlearn is to learn or practice repetitively until it becomes automatic e.g. like knowing the order of letters of the alphabet
  • Interleaving is returning to knowledge that has been taught previously with the aim of stopping it from being forgotten.
  • Low Stakes means students are not sanctioned, reprimanded or told off for not being able to do os remember something.  This encourages students to think hard, not to cheat and lower anxiety.
