Primary Geography Champions Network
A network for primary teachers created by the Geographical Association for the Primary Geography Champions project.
A Geographical Association project - join the GA here.
Welcome to our collaborative learning community. With more than 1500 members it is a great place to share ideas, resources and news about primary geography and the primary curriculum. Do browse the library of great Blog Posts with keyword links here and add your own posts. Please do take the time to comment on queries and thoughts submitted by others.
A big welcome to all new members! Remember, you can have your own page AND belong to a group where 'local' discussions are held – our Champions are keen for you to join them so please find a relevant group in your area to join by checking the list below or using the map.
IMPORTANT: If you have applied to join our network but not been given access it is probably because you have either a suspicious looking email address or name - eg a christian name only. We moderate each new member individually and do our very best to avoid having spam on the site.
FREE FOR ALL TEACHERS: stunning image sets available to download as part of A Different View - the Manifesto for Geography plus accompanying free activities written by teachers - well worth a look.
Please do add a picture of yourself to our professional networking site as it makes it much more friendly. See the blog adding your image if you're not sure.
