‘God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day. Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array.’ Genesis 1:31
The intent of our geography curriculum is to create a love of the great outdoors, to provoke children’s curiosity and fascination about the natural and human world and its people, that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
We are committed to providing children with opportunities to investigate and make enquiries about the local area of Chorley so that they can develop a real sense of who they are, their heritage, and what makes our local area unique and special.
Working with parents, we intend that our pupils leave St. Joseph’s with the knowledge and skills which will promote their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. We aim to ensure children are aware of global geographical issues, the importance of sustainability and human action upon our world. Through the teachings of Laudato Si, our children will be armed with the knowledge to make decisions about how they choose to live their lives and look after God’s planet, Our Common Home.
