Geography inspires in children a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. At St Patrick’s we aim to equip children with knowledge about people, resources, natural and human environments, in and around Oldham in Manchester. We also aim to inspire and inform children with knowledge about diverse places around our exciting world, in ways that is meaningful and relevant to them. As children progress, their growing knowledge will help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of different landscapes. Our aim is for children leave St Patrick’s with geographical knowledge, understanding and skills that allow them to explain how the Earth’s features, both in their local area and places further away from Oldham, are shaped, interconnected and changed over time.
