    You could use the headings given in the new KS3 curriculum:
    Place, Space, Scale, Interdependence, Physical & Human processes, Environmental interaction and sustainable development, Cultural understanding and diversity

    Someone kindly emailed me an APP-style grid for KS3 a few months ago. I would gladly email it on if it was useful. It only goes down to level 3, but might be useful. Message me if you would like it.

    I'd really appreciate that thank you, would be helpful to the year 6 teachers and i could always adapt it to fit into level 2 and 1.

    Thank you tafkam

    What a bloody fab document, cannot wait to share with staff and i think we might add some additional parts in too - speak to nursery and reception in particular.

    Thank you so much, great find once again!
  6. Hi, I am also a history and geography coordinator (was NQT last year) and I am really struggling to find assessment materials. Is there any way I could have a look at the skills progression grid for history you have made?
    Thanks in advance

    Can I just beg of you all to ensure that you don't over-simplify the wide heading of Geography to mean 'map skills' because the resources are more easily available.

    I did say this was a good starting point. Not this is all you will need to ensure progression in Geography. But it may give them a good jumping off point to see an example of one key area in Geography. I'm sure they will now look at other areas like patch studies, environment etc.

    Sorry upsadaisy, my comment wasn't intended as a slight against you at all. I agree that any starting point is useful. I'm just also aware that when such things are shared with teachers who are less confident in their teaching of Geography, the risk is there that it will become the central focus of assessment rather than just one strand of it.
    I know; I'm guilty of it myself in other subjects.
