I'm now retired from my role as Primary Curriculum Development Leader for the Geographical Association in Sheffield. Hence the fact that there have been far fewer posts on this site recently. Life changes for us all! I'm still working on a Geography & Global Dimension Project with DECSY (South Yorkshire Development Education Centre).
It great to read about the fantastic work Mrs Collins did with her class on Australia. They were fortunate to have Dan, who comes from Canberra, to correspond with via video clips. Have a look at their work - there are some some great cross curricular ideas. I'm particularly interested in seeing work about Australia at the moment as I'm in the process of writing a KS1 geography toolkit for the GA (Geographical Association). let me know if you've been working on an Australia theme.
