Knowledge Organisers

Curriculum Maestro is the platform which provides our topic based learning. Each topic has a knowledge organiser which provides the knowledge, skills and vocabulary learning for each topic. At the beginning of each topic, the children are immersed in knowledge and skills rich lessons which then underpin the future learning for the topic. Children are then able to choose which strand of learning they are most interested in and, where appropriate, can individually produce projects based on self-directed research and learning. At the beginning of each topic, the knowledge organisers will be displayed on the website for parents to view and discuss with their children. We don’t plan our topics in advance as the children lead the way in what topics they would like to learn about and the staff plan learning which then meets the children’s interests. This collaborative approach to planning the learning provides pupil agency which supports stronger outcomes.
