At Christ Church Primary School, we aim to inspire children’s curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. We believe in encouraging all children to develop a greater understanding and knowledge of the world, as well as their place in it. This will instil a passion and interest for the subject overall, providing children with the key knowledge, skills and vocabulary needed to be confident geographers.
Learning is linked to a range of topics and the children will have opportunities to investigate places, investigate patterns and communicate geographically. They will build on their prior learning and revisit these areas regularly, allowing them to remember more, know more and understand more.
Children at Christ Church will develop an excellent knowledge of where places are and what they are like, using geography to provoke and provide answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the world.
We see exploring geography within the context of the immediate and wider local area as highly valuable and our children will be provided with the chance to explore the geography of their locality. We are committed to providing them with opportunities to investigate and make enquiries about their local area of Chadderton and Oldham so that they can develop a real sense of who they are and what makes their local area unique.

Integral to our high-quality curriculum, children use knowledge organisers to help develop a deeper understanding and to perform increasingly complex skills. Introduced at the beginning of a topic we use them as a point of reference throughout to help children gain, retain and build the knowledge and skills as set out in our well sequenced geography curriculum.
