Subject Knowledge Organisers
Subject Knowledge Organisers form an important part of life at The Prescot School. Subject Knowledge Organisers, or SKOs for short are given out to all students in years 7, 8 and 9 at the start of every term. Their SKO forms part of their uniform standards checks, so students should have their SKO in their bag every day.
The video below is of our students explaining why the SKOs are useful for their learning.
A subject knowledge organiser contains all of the key information and knowledge that students will be taught in every subject for that term. The content of each SKO runs alongside the curriculum that is delivered in lessons and so students and parents/carers can see what has been taught, where students are up to and what is being taught next.
The SKO booklet will also form the homework for all of years 7, 8 and 9. The national curriculum contains a huge amount of information and if students don’t revise the new knowledge they have been taught, they will over time naturally forget it. To prevent this from happening and to help students store new knowledge in their long term memory, students are expected to use their SKO for homework to revise what they have been taught in lessons.
The videos below explain how you and your child can use the SKOs.
