Knowledge Organisers

Each term, we produce a knowledge organiser to explain the key areas of the topic we will be focusing on.  A knowledge organiser is a document that contains key facts and information that children need to have a basic knowledge and understanding of a topic.

Most knowledge organisers will include:

  • the essential facts about the topic, usually laid out in easily digestible chunks
  • key vocabulary or technical terms and their meaning

This term our question is History based: 'Could the Great Fire of London have been prevented?' To help answer this question we will be investigating the causes and consequences of the fire and looking at evidence written at the time in diaries and newspapers.  In Science we will be thinking about the life cycle of plants and what makes plants grow well.  At the end of the term we will be doing a mini topic about dragons based on the book 'Tell me a Dragon' by Jackie Morris.  We will design and make dragons using junk materials and write instructions for looking after them.
