Recommended BBA Teachers

All year groups

As you will be aware, your child has a new Knowledge Organiser every half term, which aims to document the essential knowledge for each unit of work and acts as an essential revision tool. Year 7 should have a total of 4 Knowledge Organisers and Year 8, 9 and 10 will have a total of 10.


You can use your Knowledge Organisers and books in a number of different ways but you should not just copy from the Knowledge Organiser into your book.

Below are some possible tasks you could do in your homework books:

  • Write out the questions and try to remember the questions
  • Write out the answers and try to remember the questions
  • Ask someone to ask you the questions and you write them down
  • Fill in a blank Knowledge Organiser with as much as you can remember
  • Create mind maps
  • Create flashcards
  • Put the key words into new sentences
  • Create Mnemonics
  • Give yourself spelling tests
  • Cover the key words and test your definitions
  • Draw diagrams of processes
  • Draw images and annotate/label them with extra information
  • Do further research on the topic
  • Create flowcharts

Please take this opportunity to see the potential significant benefits reading for enjoyment can have on a child’s development. It is recommended that secondary students read for at least 20 minutes every night; there is a reading log for you to sign each night in the front of the Knowledge Organiser to help you keep track of what your child is reading.


Please use the Powerpoint’s below to complete the English tasks:
