Curriculum CPD – Geography

Assessment, Progression and the Power of Fieldwork in Primary Geography

Led by Jon Cannell


The session will consider how we plan and implement a curriculum that builds and connects substantive, disciplinary and procedural knowledge. It will explore a range of assessment techniques to empower you to create a cohesive geography curriculum which constantly reviews and builds on pupils’ prior learning.

This hands-on session exploring the power of fieldwork will provide you with the skills and knowledge to ensure that your pupils experience high quality, memorable geography fieldwork. We will explore the power and importance of fieldwork across all areas of geographical study, sharing a range of techniques that support pupils to make multi-sensory observations about the world around them, including how to collect, analyse and present their data. Please come appropriately dressed to support in the practical nature of this session.
