At Kew Woods we believe Geography can inspire children to think about their own place in the world, their values, and their rights and responsibilities to other people and the environment.
The topic of Fair-trade, taught in Year 5, really brings the above to significance.
Children are encouraged to develop a sense of wonder about our world through studying a variety of locations, as well as our local area. For example, Year 3 go on a fieldwork trip to a nearby nature area. They learn to look at both human and physical features of places.
At Kew Woods we strive to carry out as much fieldwork as possible, bringing the subject to life. This involves trips out, both within our own locality and further afield.
Lessons are planned so children will carry out investigations, solve problems and make decisions.
Geography matters. So many of the world's current issues, for example global warming and migration, boil down to geography. At Kew Woods all children develop a good understanding of this .
