Knowledge Organisers
At New Delaval, we create knowledge organisers to support our pupils during their units of work. 
Our Knowledge organisers contain:
  • Facts - which provide pupils with background knowledge of their learning.
  • Vocabulary - to expose pupils to language used within the unit of work.
  • Images - to support the understanding of vocabulary.
We refer to our knowledge organisers at the start and end of every lesson to help consolidate learning.
