Geography

At Wood Fold Primary School we aim to give all children a high-quality geography education and inspire pupils to have a curiosity and fascination about the world.  We equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. Our aim is to ensure that children have a depth of Geography knowledge which they are able to transfer to other subjects.  At Wood Fold, children are encouraged to discover how physical and human features have developed and changed the landscape both locally and further afield, and we aim for pupils to be able to make connections between new and existing knowledge.  Our geography curriculum is progressive; In KS1, children explore local geography and gain knowledge around the area that they live in.  We then expand through the rest of the school to cover national and then international geography.

Teaching at Wood Fold will allow our children to gain confidence and practical experiences of geographical knowledge, understanding and skills; they will learn to think as geographers.

‘The study of Geography is about more than just memorising places on a map.  It’s about understanding the complexity of our world, appreciating the diversity of cultures that exists across continents.  And in the end, it’s about using all that knowledge to help bridge divides and bring people together.’   Barack Obama
