How can I help my child at home?

At Britannia Bridge we define knowledge and skills as follows.

‘Progress means knowing more and remember more.’

Ofsted – Concepts that matter when designing our curriculum

‘Knowledge and skills are intimately connected. A skill is the capacity to perform, drawing on what is known.’

(Ofsted – Concepts that matter when designing our curriculum)

It is our mission to ensure that children have and retain the essential knowledge to developing into well-educated citizens and have a success future.

In Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, we have created Knowledge Organisers to summarise the essential knowledge including vocabulary for each subject and for each year group. The knowledge organisers reflect the National Curriculum and Britannia Bridge School’s curriculum intent (content and expectations). Each terms Knowledge Organisers can be found below or by contacting the school office.

How do we make knowledge stick?
The best teaching helps children to make connections and commit information (knowledge) to their long term memory. Some of the strategies we use to help children commit the essential knowledge memorable are as follows.

    • A Hook at the beginning of a lesson or topic to create interest and excitement.
    • Making learning purposeful and real.
    • Recalling Prior Knowledge – Activating children’s current knowledge web (Schema) helps new connections to be made.
    • Catering for preferred Learning Style e.g. Visual Learners, Auditory Learners and Kinaesthetic Learners.
    • Linking knowledge to actions and emotions.
    • Use of models and images. ‘A picture is worth a thousand words’, therefore we help children visualise information.
    • Revisiting, rehearsal and repetition.
    • Opportunities to apply new knowledge.
