This 2.5h online session will focus specifically on the subject knowledge needed to teach Key Stage Two geography effectively. Our speaker, Dr Paula Owens, will focus on some of the key components of human and physical geography such as:
biomes and vegetation belts
rivers and the water cycle
settlement and land use
natural resources such as energy and food
The session aims to demonstrate the links between these topics, and encourage participants to think about the structure of their own curriculum planning in order to create a smooth and cohesive curriculum.
Dr Paula Owens is a former deputy head with many years' experience teaching children from the Foundation to Key Stage 2 age range. She completed a PhD that focused on how children develop environmental values in the early school years (ages 4–7) and lectured part time on primary geography courses for students completing QTS and PGCE. She previously worked for the Geographical Association and now works as an independent education consultant specialising in primary geography and curriculum development. She has led CPD and created written resources for the Society, and has also worked with other organisations including the BBC, PTI, OS and British Council.
