Book Description: Learning Primary Geography: Ideas and inspiration from classrooms celebrates children’s learning in primary geography. It is a book for all student and practising teachers who would like children to learn about their world in an enjoyable and stimulating way. Every page presents inspiring examples of children’s learning, and explains how and why creative approaches such as enquiry learning, learning outside the classroom, and using imaginative resources work so well in primary geography. Using illustrated case studies from a range of schools and classrooms, each chapter showcases the fantastic work all children can do in primary geography.

The book explores a wide variety of geographical learning, with chapters focusing on key aspects of the subject, including:

  • primary geography through the school grounds

  •  topical geography through issues and events

  • learning about places in primary geography

  • children’s agency and action through primary geography

Throughout the chapters, the role of primary geography in helping children develop all types of literacies, including spatial, critical and digital literacies, is explored.

Written by a highly experienced teacher and lecturer in education, Learning Primary Geographyis underpinned and illustrated by examples from a wide range of primary classrooms. It will be a source of support, guidance and inspiration for all those teaching geography in the primary school.
