'Let your light shine' Matthew 5:16
Geography Visions Statement
At Hawkesley, we believe that a successful geography curriculum enables our pupils to leave us with a sense of curiosity and fascination about the world around them. We want our children to turn the unimaginable (i.e. why do we have volcanoes? What causes tsunamis? What causes migration?) into the understandable. We believe this is the bedrock for supporting our pupils to be informed participants of a global society.
At Hawkesley Church Primary Academy, we believe that Geography motivates and inspires our children to find out about the amazing world that surrounds them. Our vision is that children will be global and sustainable citizens who are aware of the world we live in and are able to take an active part into contributing and protecting the world as they grow up. We aim to build on children’s locational knowledge, place knowledge, human and physical geography and geographical skills and fieldwork starting them and their immediate locality before branching out and examining other parts of the world. We intend to develop children’s curiosity in both their immediate surroundings and places and environments in the wider world whilst also developing the skills necessary to interpret what they see and seek answers to further their knowledge and understanding.
