iAPS Session

A gorgeous sunny day in Ely yesterday with the cathedral looking stunning. Spent the day in the Old Palace, which is the school's main 6th form block.
With my colleagues Claire and Kate, I was helping to present a day for local teachers. We explored some ideas for narratives in Geography teaching, explored the changes in the new curriculum and Common Entrance exam, and also spent the afternoon exploring the ideas behind the new Global Learning Programme and also took a preliminary WALK THE WORLD walk around Ely.

Don't forget the RGS resources on the GLP and also a page on the GA website.

Thanks to my colleagues for their part in the day, and for the teachers who took the time to come along and offer their thoughts and energy.


Keep an eye out for the next meeting, which is likely to be in the Summer term all being well, with a focus on technology, such as GIS.

Teachers from the local area around Ely and beyond welcome to come along as always...
