Outstanding teaching and learning in primary geography

***POSTPONED*** Outstanding teaching and learning in primary geography on 23rd March 2020

£110.00

We're really pleased to have secured The Geographical Association to come to Barrow and deliver “Outstanding teaching and learning in primary geography” and at a hugely discounted price of £110 per person.  The nearest delivery centre is Manchester, meaning our training not only saves you travel time and expenses but also offers a huge saving as this normally costs £220 per person (GA members price) or £285 (non members price).

With the placing of the Curriculum at the heart of the new Ofsted Inspection Framework, it is critical that schools embrace the opportunity to consider whether their current curriculum is fit for purpose and the sustained impact it has on children as learners.

This course will help you develop stimulating geography teaching and learning that will inspire and enthuse both pupils and members of staff. We will consider what constitutes high-quality geographical knowledge and skills, and how to plan for and evidence it. Taking a wider view, we will investigate how aspects of spiritual, moral, social, cultural development and British values can be taught in the context of geography.

Course Aims:

  • Explore outstanding teaching and learning in geography
  • Develop a deeper understanding of what assessment in geography looks like
  • Assess pupils’ learning and plan for improvement
  • Evaluate and plan for whole-school development in the subject
  • Help staff to better support wider issues such as SMSC, British values and the global dimension
  • Develop a deeper understanding of the role of fieldwork in geography

*** 19/03/20 UPDATE: Wild Words in the world; Outstanding teaching and learning in primary geography; Phonics into Spelling: How to create effective spellers in classrooms ALL POSTPONED ***   On balance, we feel it is the right and responsible thing to do because it will reduce the amount of social interaction which can only help to prevent the spread of Covid-19. By halting groups of visitors to schools we hope we are demonstrating a duty of care to school staff and pupils as well as the wider communities that they are all part of.
