Science at Christ Church
Christ Church Curriculum Intent
We want all our children to:
- Have a desire to learn a range of new skills and experience new things so that they can reach their full potential both academically and as a ‘whole person’.
- Come to understand and apply Christian values through learning, worship, prayer and reflection
- Become independent, responsible and confident individuals who show respect both to others and themselves as well as their environment
- Understand their own place in God’s World and to appreciate the religious, moral and cultural traditions and different needs of others
At Christ Church, we have a strong emphasis on 'community' and ‘Learning together’ and believe that our Christian values play an integral role in helping to shape our vision and in turn our curriculum.
Our curriculum has a natural synergy with our local area, with learning across the year groups taking place in Oxleas Woods, the school allotment at Woodlands farm, our own forest school area and even own school pond! Our children are aware of their local community, the diversity that exists within it and discover how they can play an increasing role within this larger ‘family’ as courageous advocates for progress.
We have deliberately shaped our curriculum to be ambitious for our children, so that it provides them with a range of new concepts that are relevant to our community of learners. We want our learners to respectively live 'life in all its fullness', but to understand that this is best achieved if you work together and celebrate the achievements of others. While we have strong outcomes within our core subjects, we are equally ambitious in our vision to ensure that our offer encompasses a range of curriculum opportunities.
