At Trinity Academy, we have an approach to homework that is based on Knowledge Organisers. A knowledge organiser (KO) sets out the important, useful and powerful knowledge on a topic on a single page. Regular retrieval practice is important such as low-stakes quizzes during lessons, or writing down the dates for key events in a timeline from the KO. Testing will also identify gaps in knowledge, lead to more learning in lessons and produce better organisation of knowledge. We have created a handy guide about how students can use their knowledge organiser when they have to learn sections for homework.
