Brand new - Food – a fact of life knowledge organisers

The team at Food – a fact of life has been busy putting together a series of Knowledge organisers for both primary and secondary schools. If you are looking for resources to support pupil learning in class or to use as a revision aid, these Knowledge organisers are ideal.

Currently, there are Knowledge organisers around healthy eating and cooking for 5-7, 7-11 and 11-14 Years.  There are also Knowledge organisers around healthy eating (including digestion), food hygiene, food science, sensory science, and consumer awareness for 14-16 Years. 

Where food comes from and food commodities Knowledge organisers will be available over the next few months.

What is a knowledge organiser?

A Knowledge organiser collates the key facts and information on a particular topic, broken down in an easily digestible way. The FFL Knowledge organisers incorporate images, key terms and definitions (11-14 and 14-16 Years)  and plenty of information suitable to each age phase.

The FFL Knowledge organisers can be edited to suit the needs of your pupils and the requirements of particular 14-16 examination specifications.

What is the purpose of FFL's Knowledge organisers?

Pupils:

  • To provide pupils with key facts/information and what they should know and can do at each age phase.
  • To provide an opportunity to learn, check and extend knowledge.
  • To develop key subject specific vocabulary/terminology.

Teaching staff:

  • To provide an outline of knowledge and skills that should be taught at each age phase.
  • To provide consistency between teaching colleagues in the same school or group of schools.
  • To support new, less-experienced and non-specialist teachers.
  • To save teachers time and reduce workload.

How can they be used in lessons?

Knowledge organisers are commonly used in several ways:

  • Prior to starting a topic, to encourage class discussion or for pupils to get a feel of what the topic will entail.
  • Encouraging pupils to bring their knowledge organisers to class as a regular retrieval tool, to help them frame each lesson in the context of the topic.
  • During class as a handy reminder of spelling, key terms and key themes of each topic.
  • As a revision tool where pupils can use the Knowledge organisers to quiz themselves.
  • Cut up and used as flash-cards.
  • To extend pupil’s knowledge through completing related tasks.

You could print a Knowledge organiser and put it on the wall in your classroom so pupils can refer to it when required and as a reminder of the topic being worked on.

The Knowledge organisers demonstrate progression in key knowledge and skills throughout the age phases. To find out more go to: 5-7 Years, 7-11 Years, 11-14 Years and 14-16 Years.
