Run in conjunction with the Historical Association, this participatory day course will support you in planning primary History and Geography in ways that strengthen links between the subjects and amplify learning. Taking examples of enquiry-led topics from both key stages 1 and 2, from the UK and the wider world, it will be a chance to enhance your subject knowledge and explore the potential of meaningful cross-subject planning.
Practical examples will include the UK's Little Ice Age, Egypt and the Nile, the Viking World, the Maya (past and present) and Stone Age to Iron Age. The day will also include an opportunity to review resourcing and support.
