History Year 8 Knowledge Organisers
The History department have created knowledge organisers for each unit that pupils will study this year. These pages contain the minimum standard of knowledge that students are expected to be able to use in their written work. All of this will be taught in lessons, alongside extra details and examples. At some points throughout the year, pupils will be sent home to revise and memorise details from these sheets. In assessments and exams, pupils will be expected to recall key words, facts and examples from these sheets and use them in their written work.
We hope that you will use the knowledge organisers to support your son/daughter's learning - for example, by testing them on key facts or details. Can you son/daughter define each key word or use it in a sentence? Can they explain why each event was significant? Can they explain what caused each event, or what the consequences were?
