Primary Geography in the new curriculum: Developing subject understanding and outstanding practice
DateThu, 5th March, 2015
Time9:30 am - 3:30 pm
LocationLionwood Junior School, Norwich
ABOUT THE COURSE
There is much that is familiar in the new National Curriculum programmes of study for Geography, which will allow schools to build on the best of what they are doing already, and to go beyond the limits of what is prescribed.
While the programmes of study specify new core knowledge, investigation and enquiry are still at the heart of good Geography. Meanwhile, there is growing evidence from Ofsted and others that schools which pay attention to the humanities, also do better in Literacy and Numeracy.
This interactive day course will help you develop your planning and practice for Geography in the new national curriculum. It will support your subject understanding and the development of outstanding practice within the subject.
Course participants will:
• Gain a better understanding of Geography’s core knowledge and skills, and how to teach them effectively in the context of the new curriculum
• Understand how Geography supports and contributes to the wider curriculum
• Find out about key resources and approaches for planning and teaching outstanding Geography
• Begin to look at progression without levels in Primary Geography
• Explore the teaching about distant places as a focus for geographical enquiry, which integrates core knowledge and skills.
£150 for one place, £275 for 2 places
