Woodlands Infant & Nursery School


At Woodlands, we seek to inspire a curiosity in the children’s local area and the wider world around them. This begins right from the Early Years Foundation Stage where they begin to look at their school surroundings and their local environment. They begin to notice weather changes as the year unfolds and each season arrives, experiencing this first-hand by getting out into the outdoors. The children begin to locate places and look at how their environment fits into the wider world by looking at maps, globes and atlases. 


Moving into Key Stage 1, these skills are developed further. The children begin to explore, investigate and learn specific geographical skills in a range of ways such as carrying out surveys, visiting the local area and using maps to locate places in the United Kingdom. The children develop this by locating the worlds continents and oceans. 


As Geographers, we aim to inspire children by the awe and wonder of our world and what this presents. Our geography curriculum aims to do this by deepening children’s geographical knowledge of people and places around the world, knowing geographical facts and allowing them to explore! Children are encouraged to ask questions and undertake new experiences for their education and beyond.
