We believe that the teaching of Geography at Eskdale encourages our pupils to be Geographical thinkers: relating the near and far; the physical and human; people and environments and the economic and social.
The learning of Geography at Eskdale is rooted in our core values I, specifically ‘Skills and Knowledge for Life’ and ‘Take Care’ as Geography contributes in distinctive ways to pupils’ personal development.
Our core intent is to enable all pupils to strive to:
Geography is taught as part of a thematic, cross-curricular approach.
To allow our pupils to achieve, our method of teaching incorporates specific meta-cognitive strategies to enable all pupils to retain the learning of both skills and knowledge.
This is typically applied by:
✓ Activating prior knowledge
✓ Small step teaching delivery
✓ Independent practice
