The team at Food – a fact of life has been busy putting together some new additions to our 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.
There are Knowledge organisers around healthy eating, cooking, where food comes from and food commodities for pupils aged 5-7, 7-11, 11-14 and 14-16 Years. Key topics such as digestion, food hygiene and safety, food science, sensory science, and consumer awareness are also covered.
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?
- 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.
- 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.
Examples of some of the Knowledge organisers can be found below.
