Primary pathway - Pandas, penguins, sharks, elephants and swallows
This session will demonstrate how landscapes and animals can help to bring the study of the continents alive. Considering big concepts in teaching geography to under 7s, the National Curriculum requirements and misconceptions, we will show how the wonders of nature can help us to teach children.

Curriculum planning pathway - Scale in Primary geography
Scale really matters, yet the National Curriculum for Key Stages 1 and 2 mentions scale just once – to ‘explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.’. As a ‘big idea’ in geography, how do we build pupils’ sense of scale? Through an interactive smartphone quiz, this workshop will surprise, challenge and amaze you in showing how much of our sense of scale is wrong, inaccurate or even impossible to gauge.
