At Woodlands, we provide high-quality geography education, which encourages fascination about the world and its people that will remain with the children for their rest of their lives. From Reception, the children at Woodlands learn about diverse places such as Italy, Australia, Brazil and the Polar Regions; inspirational people from all over the globe, who work tirelessly to protect our planet; and natural and human environments and processes such a deserts, volcanoes, earthquakes, rivers and coasts.
As the children progress through the school, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments all around them. They develop knowledge about the world they live in, the United Kingdom and our local area of Tonbridge. They use geographical skills, including first-hand observations on field trips, to enhance their locational awareness and understanding of the world around them. In Key Stage Two, the children extend their knowledge and understanding beyond the local area of Tonbridge to include the United Kingdom and Europe, North and South America. They will study location and characteristics of a range of the world’s most significant human and physical features.
“Young people - they care. They know that this is the world that they're going to grow up in, that they're going to spend the rest of their lives in. But, I think it's more idealistic than that. They actually believe that humanity, human species, has no right to destroy and despoil regardless.”- David Attenborough.
