Courses 2016-2017

Developing mathematical fluency and language and literacy through geography.

Key Aims 

All colleagues will leave able to:

  • Demonstrate to colleagues how and why expertise in English and mathematics is vital in enabling high quality learning outcomes in geography
  • Design key question led enquiries in geography which integrate numeracy and mathematical fluency and language and literacy to enable children to perform better in geography
  • Ensure learning in geography which connects with English and mathematics through the curriculum is outcomes focused and progressively challenging for children
  • Know how to plan effective assessment methods (beyond levels) matched to subject performance descriptors to identify achievement in learning connected to English and mathematics

Conference Outline

  • 09:00 – 10:45  Geography: providing real life contexts for learning and applying literacy and numeracy
  • 10:45 – 11:00   Refreshments
  • 11:00 – 12:45   Exemplifying good practice at Key Stage 1

All delegates will receive a number of fully documented and resourced Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 learning enquiries to use in their own schools.  These investigations, written to the National Curriculum will illustrate how numeracy and mathematical reasoning and language and literacy can be taught through and add value to learning in geography.
