At Woodside, Geography aims to develop pupil knowledge and understanding of the world around them whilst inspiring curiosity, fascination and a love for learning. The teaching of the subject equips pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, as well as supporting the development of a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. As pupils progress, 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. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.


  • In Y1-Y6 location knowledge, map skills and fieldwork are woven throughout Geography units.
  • Effective use of educational visits, local fieldwork and visitors are planned, to enrich and enhance the pupil’s learning experiences within the Geography curriculum.  In-depth fieldwork opportunities are greatly amplified throughout bespoke local area units where children go out into the field to conduct observations, surveys, investigations and field sketches. 
  • Throughout units of work, children have ample opportunity to revisit previous learning with each unit of study ending with a piece of work which provides the children with the opportunity to showcase their learning whilst also giving the unit a purpose.
  • In order to support our children with knowing more and remember more, as well as revisiting prior learning, each lesson begins with Mapingo – a fun game which helps pupils develop location knowledge
  • The Geography curriculum is underpinned by quality teaching and resources and continues to develop in line with the most recent research and ongoing CPD opportunities
