At Woodley Primary School, we aim to deliver a high quality geography curriculum which inspires our pupils to have a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. Our teaching equips the children with knowledge about places and people; resources in the natural and human environment; together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. This knowledge is built over time, where solid foundations allows for teaching to progress throughout the children’s learning journey.
We want our children to develop geographical skills such as collecting and analysing data, using maps / globes / aerial photographs and digital mapping to name and identify countries, continents and oceans; and communicating information in a variety of ways. We want children to be confident, enjoy and love learning about geography by gaining this knowledge and skills, not just through experiences in the classroom, but also with the use of fieldwork and educational visits.
Throughout the delivery of the geography curriculum, the staff at Woodley aim to help the children to develop an appreciation for the world we live in, where they are taught how to contribute responsibly and respectfully to the community and our society. Over time, children at Woodley learn to develop attitudes and form opinions about current issues, appreciate tensions and uncertainties and consider the future of their world and its people.
