Love to Learn, Together with the Lord
At Chorley All Saints' we aim to provide a high-quality geography education that inspires a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people, that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Our teaching should equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.
We aim for all pupils to became confident and inquisitive geographers. We place a huge emphasis on pupil's locational knowledge and geographical skill development.

Encouraging Geography at Home
You can develop and promote the child Geographer within your own home. Here are some easy activities you can encourage your child to do:-
*Have globes and maps to refer to at home. If you hear a news story, want to find out about a football team, movie star or place in a story find it on your map or globe.
*Try out new foods from around the world - find out where that food is from on your map/globe.
*Re-design your bedroom, draw a map of your room and where you would like to move your furniture to.
*Can you follow the SATNAV or a map when you go on a trip? Can you identify which way you are going North, South, East, West, South-West?
*Use maps and keep maps from days out. Is the map easy to use? Could you make your own map of the area?
