    We are currently developing a Primary Curriculum that is based upon countries and skills with the content being taught through each county. This curriculum model allows children the opportunity to return to geographic vocabulary, skills and concepts every two years and embed the skills of a geographer. 

    Find out more through the network meetings and the primary planning course taking place in June.

    Primary Network Meeting
    by Karen Falcon - Monday, 8 October 2018, 11:57 AM

    We had a great primary network meeting with the Fareham and Gosport group last week exploring how we can train our children's eyes to look, observe and make patterns and connections. Great fun playing games using the atlas and Google maps that we can use with our children to improve their fluency with the their local area and the world.

    There are still spaces on the networks around the county to join in with the learning.
