The Benfleet Teaching School Alliance is delighted to offer schools an opportunity to attend a one-day training session by David Weatherly aimed at supporting primary schools to offer outstanding Geography and History learning within a creative curriculum. 

Course Facilitator: David Weatherly 

David Weatherly has nearly forty years of educational experience as a teacher, senior manager, local authority consultant and school improvement adviser. His work with schools across the UK and abroad focuses on ways of achieving improved outcomes for pupils through the professional development of teachers. David also contributes to Early Years and Primary SCITT, Teach Direct and university PGCE programmes. David has been a Harper Collins author at both primary and secondary levels for many years and his Primary Connected Geography framework published in 2016 was highly commended by the Geographical Association. His corresponding Primary Connected History scheme was published in 2018.

David always seeks to improve the engagement and raise the performance of pupils at all stages through the carefully planned progression of key subject knowledge, concepts and skills. David's focus is always on learning and in particular on identifying challenging subject outcomes which are made accessible to pupils through key question-led enquiries. He has particular expertise in designing cross-curriculum learning programmes which integrate the teaching of English and maths to support pupils to study places, issues, people and events at depth. His enquiry-based approach teaches important subject knowledge whilst emphasising the significance of teachers allowing time and opportunity for pupils to master key subject skills and outcomes by 'doing less better'.

Improving provision and outcomes in Geography and History: EYFS-Year 6

This one-day training programme will focus on raising pupil achievement in Geography and History through designing and teaching a high quality curriculum which is relevant, engaging and progressively more challenging in terms of outcomes EYFS – Year 6. It will include sequencing, appropriate assessment, learning goals and establishing a pedagogy of enquiry to enable skill development in each subject. The sessions will be practical and interactive with an emphasis throughout on reflective professional practice.

All colleagues will leave:

  • Understanding what it means for pupils to make progress in geography and history;
  • Knowing the principles of designing rigorous geographical and historical learning enquiries which focus on achieving appropriately challenging subject outcomes and the mastery of key subject skills, vocabulary and concepts;
  • Aware of how pupils can be supported to learn as young geographers and historians;
  • Having reviewed practical and manageable approaches to assessing and recording pupil progress against subject learning goals.

 

Feedback from previous training by David has included:

A fantastic thought provoking engaging course with many useful resources and ideas for an enquiry led curriculum in history.  Can’t wait for the geography one!

Entertaining, informative and useful.  A passion for teaching and history was evident throughout.  David’s enthusiasm was infectious.  

Fantastic course which has inspired me to go back and implement so much in my school.

After becoming a new teacher recently, this day has literally changed my outlook on teaching.  Before today I was struggling to fit in my scheme of work but after listening to David I now understand what is required -eternally grateful. 10/10.  

David Weatherly is a brilliant trainer – having been to all his Geography courses, they just get better and better.

A very engaging course leader.  It is fantastic to have a course led by someone who is still fully involved in education and has a fantastic plethora of experience.

A fantastic, inspirational course which, as a deputy and English subject leader, I found matched what we want to do in school perfectly. A wonderful antidote to today's educational 'policy' - thank you so much. 


This training is suitable for EYFS - KS2 primary phases.
