Discover how a secondary school has developed Key Stage 3 pupils' map skills in geography with the use of bingo and 3D models.
When Emma Thom took on the role of head of geography at Kingsbury School and Sports College in Birmingham, she recognised a need to improve understanding of maps among the pupils.
She found that text books and traditional lessons were putting some pupils off the subject. With her colleagues, Emma set about developing more creative lessons to both invigorate teaching and inspire the children.
The teachers behind the project say it has created a new enthusiasm for geography among the pupils and achievement is up at Key Stage 4.
