This two part day course offers an introduction to some of the key questions facing primary teachers and subject co-ordinators in planning for outstanding Geography in their schools.
The morning offers an introduction to National Curriculum Geography at Key Stages 1 and 2, including changes in the requirements and key terminology. It then goes on to look at planning for progression from Y1 to Y6, including geographical skills and core knowledge.
The afternoon focuses on the development of higher order thinking at KS2, through:
• teaching the regional study requirement at KS2, taking South America as an example;
