Latest Announcement:



From the youngest age children will be taught about people and places and the importance of global changes affecting the world in which we live. We want our geographers to understand where things are found, why they are there and how they develop over time. We intend to develop children’s curiosity, fascination, joy and a desire to protect the world and its people, to grow an interest and a passion for the subject that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.


Children in our early years will learn through stories and first-hand experiences as well as being taught specific skills (including fieldwork) and vocabulary. Throughout KS1 and KS2, children continue to have a range of opportunities to experience geography through practical engaging tasks beyond the classroom. Children will secure their geographical understanding of where they live and how this compares to other areas in the UK, Europe and the wider world through an enquiry-based approach to learning. Teachers will scaffold learning in lessons to allow all pupils to secure positive outcomes for all.


All children will use geographical vocabulary accurately. Children will begin to make links from geography to other curriculum subjects, such as history and science. They will improve their enquiry skills and inquisitiveness about the world around them, and their impact on the world. All children will realise that they have choices to make in the world, developing a positive commitment to the environment and the future of the planet. Children will become competent in analysing and communicating a range of data gathered. They will be able to interpret a range of sources of geographical information and they will communicate geographical information in a variety of ways. All children in school will be able to speak confidently about their geography learning, skills and knowledge.


At Hawkshead Esthwaite Primary School, we maximize children’s learning by providing them with a range of rich, memorable experiences. Field trips include regular visits to Grizedale forest, Wray Castle and Latterbarrow; we utilize our local environment at every opportunity. Eco recycling, activities in Fletchers Field, wild camping and orienteering are firm favourites with our children whatever the weather.
