Geography Schemes

Discussion in 'Geography' started by Happy Chappy, Mar 19, 2011.

  1. HI
    I need a little help- I have just taken over as Humanities Co-ordinator and have been looking at curriculum coverage in the school (taken me hours!!!). The previous co-ordinator was looking at getting a scheme in (Badgers) so that Geography would be better covered. From what I can see we need to improve only some areas, so children can undertake more fieldwork in topics taught, which I don't think would be affected by buying in a scheme.

    I don't really want to rock the boat and upset majority of teachers in school by changing too much at once. Are there any Geography experts who could give me a little advice. I want to make sure that there is good progression in skills being taught at every level- from Foundation to Year 6 - is it better to have a scheme or not (will this be the case with a scheme!! as some are not that good).
    Please suggest useful schemes- or topic ideas for year groups as at the moment we seem to covering same in Year 1 and 2.
    Thanks in advance
  2. I know this is a busy time of year with parent's evening etc but are there any Geography Co-ordinators out there?? I really need some guidance. Please!!!
  3. Have you tried posting in Primary? Sorry I can't help as I teach secondary. Good luck with it.
  4. thanks- haven't tried as thought Geography would be best option- perhaps not. I will post on Primary too. Thanks
