Local Learning- History & Geography

Local Learning


Our local area is very important to our school and we have tailored our Curriculum to ensure that it is personalised for our children. We love visiting the 'Lovely Lakes' to conduct Geography fieldwork, as well as getting out into our community to learn about the geography and history of our local village and town. 


Here you will see a variety of our Geography and History work which also celebrates our local area!

Year 6 enjoyed learning about their local environment during a trip with West Cumbria River Trust and The National Trust.

5D have been using Google Earth and images of maps from Google Earth to find out about the local area of Seaton and in particular, where Seaton Allotments are.

Year 4 Visit to the WW1 Exhibition at the Beacon Museum

Year 6 thoroughly enjoyed their visit to The Beacon, Whitehaven. Primarily, the visit was to see the wonderful WW1 memorial to soldiers from West Cumbria but we also enjoyed looking at other historical sources while we were there.

Y3 enjoyed their trip to the River Eden. They learned about the features of a river and were able to take part in some river dipping!

Year 4 and 6 braved the very Cumbrian weather to walk around Lake Buttermere! We had a fantastic time exploring and learning about one of our local lakes, surrounding mountains and natural features such as cave formations and waterfalls. When we got back to school, we completed our map work and learned about the weathering and erosion of natural and man-made features. A fantastic achievement!

Lovely Lakes! Displaying our local Geography skills.

Aren't we lucky to live in such a beautiful area? Here we are using our fieldwork and mapping skills in Keswick.

Workington: Our Town

Seaton Junior School celebrated the history of our town by performing a production at the local Carnegie Theatre. Written and composed by our specialist music teacher, Mr Milner, the children learned all about Workington's heritage and traditions. It was a huge hit with families of the school and the local community and even featured on the local news! Here is ITV's news report on our production, Workington: Our Town.
