KNOWLEDGE ORGANISERS & HOME LEARNING
A Knowledge Organiser is a book that sets out the important, useful and powerful knowledge of a single topic on one page.
When used effectively, Knowledge Organisers are useful in:
- Helping build a foundation of factual knowledge
- Embedding revision techniques for now and future studies (A-Level, College, University)
- Allowing knowledge to become stored in long term memory which frees up working memory for more complex ideas. It also allows you to connect concepts together, even across subjects.
Please find below the current Knowledge Organisers (available for download as a PDF below), information about knowledge organisers and a guide on how knowledge organisers are used at Trinity.
New knowledge organisers are issued to all students termly in school (replacements can be purchased at school or downloaded below) and are used as a tool for revision, home learning and to build a foundation of core contextual knowledge for each subject.
Please contact your child's Family Group Leader if you have any questions about knowledge organisers or their use within Trinity.

Watch the video below to find out more about the science behind knowledge organisers and how they are used at Trinity.
RETREVIAL PRACTISE TECHNIQUES
Retrieval practice is a strategy of converting information taught in lessons from short term memory to long erm memory through the bringing of information to mind and increasing learning. Recalling information forces us to pull knowledge previously learnt and to examine what we know. This process is what cognitive scientists refer to retrieval practice as the ''testing effect'' and is the active precess that students engage in to to boost learning.
See some of the techniques that we are using at Trinity below (these are also in page 2 of the Knowledge Organiser) with 'how to ......' videos.
