There is something here for everyone.

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.

Self-testing

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.
