Primary Geography - What do we need to be doing?

Discussion in 'Primary' started by gibbonfunky, Oct 14, 2011.

  1. I'm a primary school teacher. We're looking at altering things, making
    it fun for the children through topic based work. I was wondering if
    through the wider curriculum and the new freedoms offered to teachers
    with the creative curriculum, if we are still bound to teach certain
    skills as in the qca guidance. Also what would ofsted consider to be a
    wire and varied curriculum? I suppose I'm really asking how much freedom
    do we get.



    Thanks for your help.

    There is no new curriculum yet. You never had to use any QCA skills, just the NC.

    Colour in maps. Just as if you were doing a Geography degree.

    Lol, lardylegs. It is a pretty vacuous subject. I was once told that as long as you knew what an ox-bow lake was, you could pass a geography exam at any level.
