Our Vision for Geography:

  • To build knowledge of the location of national and globally significant places.
  • To understand the processes that give rise to physical and human geography, and the impact this can have on a locality.
  • Use and develop field skills that allow for data collection, analysis, observation and recording of key geographical processes.
  • Interpret a range of sources of geographical information such as globes, atlases, maps, compasses, diagrams.


Shaping Our Geography Curriculum: 

At Chorlton C of E we believe Geography, by nature, is an investigative subject. One that helps to provoke and provide answers to questions about natural and human aspects of the world. Geography’s fundamental role is to allow children to understand the world, its environments and places near and far. Children begin by learning about the 'near', their own locality and what makes it unique and special. This expands as they grow and their knowledge deepens. Through field skills and interpretation, we hope our children leave us with a solid understanding of the fascinating and precious nature of the world around us and what we need to do to protect it. 

Our geography curriculum has been shaped to ensure knowledge and skills are entwined with different aspects of geographical content. Due to its quizzical and tangible nature, geography is taught through a variety of topics throughout the year. This provides children with wonderful cross curricular links across most subjects. 


Our Geography curriculum is also drawn from: 

  • Connected Geography
