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.
Aims and outcomes
- Feel confident in using the outdoor environment for hands-on geography.
- Understand how using the outdoor environment can contribute to outstanding geography.
- Develop geographical and cross-curricular activities that develop pupils’ geographical skills.
