A Message To St Michael's

We thought we would put together a video to show you how much we are thinking about you and missing you. We know times are though but it is so important to keep going. Soon this will be over and we will all be together again.

Knowledge Organisers

To help with this term's topic - Crime and Punishment - we have created a knowledge organiser that each child can use to begin to understand what will be taught throughout the topic. This document contains the essential knowledge we will be studying in class.

If your child could learn this section by section, as each week we will be testing them. 

 

Some ways you could use the Knowledge Organiser at home - 

  • Children read the information and try and recall it either verbally or writtten down
  • An adult tests them on small sections
  • Repeat it over and over
  • Keep revisiting information that has already been learnt in previous weeks

 

Any other hints and tips that you have found useful would be welcomed.
