much that was good and outstanding use of ICT much more evident . and pupils take greater responsibility for their own learning. generally taught well and the subject was well led. Most pupils enjoyed well-planned lessons that extended their knowledge, challenged their thinking and enhanced their understanding. Most pupils reached the end of Key Stage 2 with detailed knowledge derived from well-taught studies of individual topics. However, some pupils found it difficult to place the historical episodes they had studied within any coherent, long-term narrative. They did not have an overview. .so they found it difficult to link developments together. ..many primary teachers lack adequate subject knowledge beyond the

specific elements that they taught. The curriculum structure for primary schools was itself episodic and militated against pupils grasping such an overview. There is a pressing need for 1. better professional development 2. for the curriculum to provide overview as well as in-depth topics so that children grasp the coherent chronological framework for the separate periods and events that they study. Ofsted geography 2011: learning to make a world of difference pupils progress uneven across classes more or less disappearing in 1 in 10 schools (often using themes) primary teachers weak knowledge, lack of confidence in teaching

insufficient subject-specific training limited use of topical events or geographical information systems 50% were not using geography to support pupils role in their locality, their country or the wider world Feb 2011 and best practice is where: HTs acknowledge the value of geography there is a subject action plan subject-specific training is provided the curriculum is monitored to ensure coverage and progression

CPD is offered through the Action Plan for Geography Feb 2011 ofsted recommendations 2011 Focus on core knowledge Develop a sense of place Identify subject content in a thematic approach Ensure coverage Provide support and professional development Plan frequent fieldwork Use new technology Recognise responsibilities for the locality, country and the global

LUNCH 12:30 13:30 Planning a unit of work for history or geography Ann Walker, Schools Library Service Manager Coffee 14:30 14:45 Progression in history and geography from Year 1 to Year 6 ISSUE: that only the core subjects address the issue of progression beyond that defined at KS1/KS2 How can we ensure that skills

and understanding are developing from Year 1 to Year 6? Subject aims: -essential for guiding the development of skills/understanding alongside knowledge Ensuring progression in planning Reflect on the subject aims for your subject Explore the (draft) models presented for progression in geography and history

Discuss and amend the models based on your knowledge/experience Reflect on the unit plan completed in the last session, the age/year group it was intended for and suggest where changes/additions are needed Plenary Completion of evaluations What needs to be done next in your school?
