This course will demonstrate how geography can encourage pupils to engage with literacy, providing you with ideas to develop a rich and relevant curriculum which will give pupils excellent educational experiences. It will explore geography through stories, consider the use of images to develop speaking and listening, and think about sharing and justifying opinions in geography. Opportunities for outdoor work will also be examined, promoting relevant, real-world learning. We will trial the various activities and discuss how they might be adapted for use with your own pupils and school setting.
By the end of the day we hope participants: • Understand how geography can support and enhance literacy • Discover a range of geographical activities that will help pupils to develop their literacy skills • Discuss and share ideas for developing literacy through geography with other primary teachers • Find out how to develop useful resources that support outstanding geography and literacy
