This half day course is based on the premise of putting geography first whilst providing practical and easy to implement ideas for continuity and progression through the school in both non-fiction and poetry.
We will look at how to read and research, and organise and write texts to demonstrate understanding in geography. There will also be creative ideas for publishing work with an emphasis on audience and purpose. Similar ideas will be covered on the sister course Reading and Writing in History: practical ideas for history leaders in primary schools. This means that children will be able to become familiar with the techniques and concentrate upon applying their knowledge and understanding.
For KS1, there will be a focus upon describing and communicating information about human and physical features both locally and internationally. In KS2, we will move on to describing and understanding human and physical elements and topographical features such as hills, mountains, coasts and rivers in greater depth.
The reading element of the course will look at how texts are organised – text structure and organisation – before moving on to cover how to write these texts effectively – spelling, punctuation and grammar focusing upon key features of the genre and age related expectations in different year groups.
Finally, we will move onto creative and engaging ideas for publishing children’s geography work.
