East London Geography Hub hosted a session by Susan Pike, the President of the Geographical Association, recently. The theme of the session was how to support KS2 students through transition, but also to recognise that many students have had strong experiences with geographical enquiry and fieldwork and that Y7 may not adequately challenge them.
The hub supports East London Geographers, led by Denise Freeman.
Here is the recording of our hub session with @SusanJPike. Several people asked for it. Also, there is a JamBoard to add your thoughts to & a form to fill in, to be part of ongoing discussions about strengthening links between primary & secondary geography. In the comments.— EastLondonGeographyHub (@EastGeography) July 4, 2021
Follow the links to watch the session, which is very well worth a watch and lasts around 25 minutes.
It might make a good video to watch in the first few days of the Autumn term next year to provide inspiration for KS2 / KS3 teams, perhaps on one of the start of year INSET days.
This is featured as the latest point on my newish RESETTING KS2 GEOGRAPHY blog where I am blogging my support for colleagues as we redevelop the teaching of geography for Years 3-5. Take a look.
