Design & Technology Knowledge Organisers

knowledge organiser is a document, usually no more than two sides of A4, that contains key facts and information that you need to have a basic knowledge and understanding of a topic. You should learn the information on these - using the knowledge organiser, read, cover, say, write and then check your answers. 

Locate the knowledge organiser for the unit you are learning and revise the information. Once you have done this, use the game linked to that knowledge organiser to test your understanding.

Click on knowledge organiser --> learn the key knowledge and vocabulary --> play the games to test understanding.
