Your Geography needs skills. Spice them up with some new ideas.

Course Details

Geography should be about ‘real people and places’ and definitely NOT a diet of
inappropriate, non-challenging worksheets and work that is essentially an extension of
language-led work. The teaching needs to open a window on the world for every child and
it needs to do that through the use of a combination of skills. In this way they become the
‘gearbox’ of the geography curriculum.

The challenge is to use and choose the appropriate skills for the content being studied
and to use the skills progressively and in different contexts as pupils progress through the
primary phase.

Skills therefore are for all, so how do we organise that?

This workshop will explore practical ways in which the full range of geographical skills
can ‘spice up’ your geography and not ‘kill your curriculum’ but enable all to access it...
