Woodfield Primary School

History and Geography

History at Woodfield teaches children a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past, our local area, and that of the wider world. Through our local history studies, children develop knowledge and a sense of pride in our local history. We aim to inspire curiosity in children and a desire to ask questions, weigh evidence, sift arguments and develop perspective and judgement. By developing an understanding of the past and the diversity of society, children are better placed to face potential challenges of the future and consider ways to overcome difficulties.


The Geography Curriculum is designed to develop in children an awareness of their own environment and pride in their community.  We aim to inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people, equipping them with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. Learning in Geography includes the use of maps, diagrams and globes and considers the interaction between physical and human geographical features of the world.  Children’s work on sustainability and opportunities to join the Eco Team develops their understanding of challenges facing both the world and their local environment,.
