At KS3 all students at The Hurlingham Academy receive a printed copy of their subject Knowledge Organisers.
A Knowledge Organiser is a list of key facts and vocabulary that is critical for students to memorise. For each subject, the Knowledge Organisers will help students to access, revise and enjoy their lessons at The Hurlingham Academy.
Part of KS3 homework will be to learn this knowledge in small sections. Students will be quizzed on this knowledge by their teacher in lessons. Students must achieve 80% in a Knowledge Quiz to pass.
How can I use my Knowledge Organiser to help memorisation?
1. Read a section of your knowledge organiser.
2. Cover it up.
3. Write out what you've remembered.
4. Check the knowledge organiser to see if you are correct.
5. Repeat this process.
Revise your knowledge organiser every day to help store the information in your long-term memory.
