General Discussion / Fieldwork survey
« on: June 18, 2017, 11:39:47 AM »
A plug for the GA’s Fieldwork survey – please can you complete yourselves and diffuse further to other colleagues (this includes those responsible for geography provision in Primaries etc...). Re-sharing this onto other groups would be fantastic.

It’s all about how the GA can support teachers with fieldwork in the future – so responses are valuable!

Thanks :)

General Discussion / UK County Word Cloud project
« on: May 31, 2017, 07:59:28 PM »
Alan Parkinson has been spending half term with another cracking idea! Using Facebook he has asked people to submit 5 or so words they associate with "Cornwall". he created a word cloud using WordArt with the results.

Alan is expanding the project and hopes to create a word cloud for each county! Can you help? It takes a few seconds and I am sure the results will be very interesting. They will be shared on

Dan said "Birmingham is greener than you think"
Stoke is "interesting"
Newcastle has "so many children"

Driving home southwards this afternoon I had a thought ....

How about how we are connected via the Prime / Greenwich Meridian 0°?

UK (France, Spain), Algeria, Mali, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Togo

Off the top of my head ....

Football
Chocolate and other Fairtrade goods
Mobile phones - Coltan from Congo
Holidays - growth of tourism

Of course, ensure that they understand Africa is a continent not a country!!!!

General Discussion / Pearson Geography Progression Scale
« on: November 22, 2016, 08:14:39 PM »
Pearson's Geography  Progression Scale is an easy to use tool to track students’ progress over Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. It comprises of 12 steps ranging from low (1) to high (12) challenge. It is anticipated that the average student will enter year 7 working at the 3rd or 4th step. The expectation is that a student will make one Step of progress a year.

Someone else has asked me about these - I thought I still had them, I've looked, but can't find them - I must have given them away when I had a clear out a few years ago.
Sorry!  :(
