NQT - Geography/History


Oakington Manor Primary School , Oakington Manor Drive, Wembley, Middlesex, HA9 6NF

Course description

This course will be split into an hour on Geography, followed by an hour on History. We will look at the key learning areas for each subject and try out a variety of practical, easily adaptable skill-based activities that support each of these learning areas. This course aims to equip participants with the knowledge and understanding to deliver outstanding history and geography lessons which excite and engage young learners by exposing them to high-quality sources; encouraging them to ask questions and reflect on their observations or interpretations and empowering them to take ownership of their learning through independent research and analysis. The format of the course is intended to be as practical as possible – participants will have the opportunity to try out a range of activities involving a variety of sources, including: artwork and photographs, replica and real artefacts, atlases and maps, historical texts, online digital and multimedia resources and more. Participants will also be given some direction to useful websites and organisations that can provide additional resources or support.
