‘Geography Rocks!! 2.’

Course Details

As the Geography Order (2014) explains ‘high quality geography education should inspire
in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world’ and develop an understanding of
the relationship ‘between the Earth’s key physical and human processes’ as well as ‘the
formation of landscapes and environments’.

This course will build upon last year’s successful workshop, but is also a stand-alone
event if you did not attend the previous one. It will explore in practical ways how the vast
range of different elements of physical geography in both Key Stage 1 and 2 will develop
an understanding of the relation between people, place and physical geography.

An important focus will be upon teacher background knowledge as well as how primary
children can ‘get to grips’ with the subject in ways that avoid a diet of diagrams, or
standing in the rain at Malham Cove!

If you’re new to physical geography or already an advocate then this course is for you...
