Geography at Woodlands provides the children with the opportunity to explore, understand and apply their conceptual understanding of the earth which we live in and how it is changing. We aim to build upon the children’s personal geography by developing their knowledge, understanding and geographical skills through studying places and themes both locally and around the world, e.g. compare & contrast the landscape of Formby dunes to that of Easedale in the Lake District.
We believe children are active participants and investigators within geography and value fieldwork as an essential part of the curriculum allowing them to explore, make connections and comparisons and identify patterns and changes. Geographical enquiry and skills are embedded throughout teaching to ensure skills are transferrable and progressive.
