Subject Intent

Geography at Woodfield is designed to allow our children to leave Year 6 with an understanding of the diversity of the world we live in and how we as humans can impact changes upon it at a local and global level. Children will understand the human and physical aspects of the world?and how and why these change over time. They will be given the skills to confidently read and interpret maps, atlases, and globes in order to explore the environment around them. Our geography curriculum will enable our children to have the skills and knowledge to become informed global citizens.

This is through providing experiences and teaching opportunities within Understanding the World in People, Culture and Communities and The Natural World.
