Knowledge Organisers

This week students in year 10 and 11 have been introduced to a new and exciting approach to help support them in developing in-depth knowledge in all subjects. Knowledge organisers have been launched to further enhance the high quality of teaching and learning taking place here at Isca Academy.

A knowledge organiser is one side of key information for each unit of work a student studies, in every subject. This may include facts, vocabulary, diagrams and concepts they need to learn in order to master subjects they are studying. Once learnt, and committed to long term memory, students will have the foundations to build on to make progress across the new and more challenging knowledge rich GCSE programmes of study. This exciting initiative will be introduced to students in years 7-9 at the start of the Spring term, in January 2020.

All students will follow a set home learning timetable and be expected to complete a minimum of 1 page per subject per night in their knowledge organiser exercise book. This will be checked by their tutor once a week during a dedicated knowledge organiser tutor period and subject teachers in lessons.

There will be information for parents of students in years 10 and 11 at the Key Stage 4 Secrets to Success evening taking place on Wednesday 9th October. Further details will be issued to parents in the coming weeks.
