resources including for example more up-to-date
atlases, globes and maps, metal detectors and
information books.
• Fear groups have developed planning and teaching so
that geography and history lessons are taught
discreetly as well as cross-curricular. In some E"+

book to complete geography and history work in.

or workshops held in school available from providers.
• There has been an increase in the amount of historical
and geographical museum loans used to support topics
in each year group.

courses about the changes to the geography and
history curriculum.
• ;s a result the children have shown a greater interest in
the topics and produced work of a high standard. This has
also resulted in a greater knowledge and understanding of
the topics covered. In addition, year group planning gives
the opportunity for more pupil led activities and a more
confident delivery of lessons by staff.
• %ue to this children have been able to develop their
knowledge, understanding and key skills within a context.
• The progress of all children can easily be seen in their
book throughout the year and also provide evidence of
progression more easily when comparing with other year
groups. In addition children take more pride in their work
and can respond to feedback or challenges more readily
than looking for sheets in their folders.
• #onse(uently staff have furthered their own knowledge
and enthusiasm of the topic being covered as well as the
children0s. The children have also had the opportunity to
go on more educational visits with greater links to their
history or geography topic.
• Therefore the children are given a greater opportunity to
develop their knowledge and understanding of a location or
a time in history and as a result of this their interest.
• ;s a result the co-ordinator has been able to feedback to
staff and inform them of the changes to the curriculum in
both history and geography as well as best practice.
• The co-ordinator then updated the long term history and
geography plans so that all teaching staff are aware of the
statutory ob*ectives to be covered in each year group.

• The geography and history co-ordinator has also
collected the views of pupils in each year group about
geography and history through discussion and
insight into what the children think about history and
