Your Guide to British Life, Culture and Customs
Woodlands Junior School is in the south-east corner of England is our new quick entrance to our British life and Culture website


Our British Life and Culture website will tell you some of the fascinating facts and information about our beautiful country, in a way that is easy to read and to understand. We have mainly written about England, as that is the country within the UK where our students live.

Britain is the birthplace of Newton, Darwin, Shakespeare and the Beatles; home of the world's largest foreign exchange market, the world's richest football club - Manchester United , the inventor of the hovercraft and the JK Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter books. From Scotland to Cornwall, Britain is full of customs and traditions. A lot of them have very long histories. Some are funny and some are strange. But they're all interesting and are all part of the British way of life. Throughout this section of our website you will have the chance to discover many of our customs and traditions.

We receive many e-mails from our visitors who want information on England and Britain. In this section of our web site our students answer some of those questions. You will find out about our home, family and religious life as well as schools and how we spend our leisure time.

We have over 13,500 pages on Britain, so you are sure to find what you are looking for right here!
