Good morning

Does anyone have a copy of this programme that was broadcast by Panorama back in 2003 for Comic Relief? It is a long shot I know. There are no online versions I can find.

Thanks in advance

Justin

For primary teachers and geography subject leaders

Would you like the opportunity to explore creative ideas and strategies designed to support high quality geographical learning?
Would you like to feel more confident about leading impactful fieldwork at KS1 and 2?
Would you like to save time and energy by examining some of the ways in which real-world geography can support and enhance literacy learning?

If the answer is yes, then the GA primary conference is the place to be.

Workshops
Leading fieldwork in the primary curriculum (Ben Ballin, Consultant to the GA)
Outstanding teaching and learning in primary geography (Richard Hatwood, Ysgol Esgob Morgan, St Asaph and Consultant to the GA)
Dipping your (geographical) toe into the literacy lake (Nell Seal, Consultant to the GA)

London 3 July 2018

It was a shame not to have a  proper chat Judith - as you say lots on and some excellent sessions. I didn't get to meet Tony either as his session was full when I arrived. A great event as always !   I will never look at a window seat again without thinking of Nick's geography club. We came back on the train and each had a window seat :)

This hands-on course uses the outdoor environment as the inspiration for developing your geography curriculum. The National Curriculum states that geography should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world that remains with them for the rest of their lives; what better way to achieve this than by immersing pupils in real-world geography outside of the classroom? The course will provide numerous ideas for engaging fieldwork and will increase teachers’ confidence in getting out of the classroom.

I'll be there on Friday - looking forward to Nick's Presidential address, 15 creative ideas for quality geography teaching, and obviously your session at the Teachmeet Alan :).   The first Teachmeet in Manchester was the first one I had attended - great fun

Looking forward to meeting up with lots of enthusiastic geographers as always. I live in hope of finally meeting Tony Cassidy.

I'll be there (if my flight from Toulouse is not cancelled!). Getting in on Thursday night and going to Dan's lecture. Hoping to get around as many sessions as possible and looking forward to seeing as many colleagues as possible. Will be attending the teachmeet as an observer and the beermeet as an active participant!

a demain....
