Expectations of Students
Students are expected to:

Why Knowledge Organisers?
The new GCSE specifications have a greater focus on application and evaluation skills. This leaves less time in class to focus on ‘the bits they just have to know’.
If knowledge retention is improved, this will have a positive impact on levels of attainment and achievement.
Decay theory states that if learning is not used, revisited or rehearsed it simply fades away.
