Knowledge Organisers

Please have a look at the knowledge organisers I have uploaded in the files below.  These are meant for you to use at home.  Please put them up on a wall or somewhere that is easily visible to your child.  It is important that you chat to your child about the content of the knowledge organisers as this will help them to better understand and remember their learning in school.
