To support our teaching of history and geography topics, we have developed knowledge organisers for children to use as a learning aid. They contain key vocabulary, big questions, sticky knowledge, recommended reading, timelines, important people, interesting facts and more; they will be used regularly in class and, we hope, by parents at home to support children's learning.
