Christ Church CofE Primary School

together we can...

Curriculum

Religious Education

Our class value is Compassion.  In our R.E lessons, we have been learning about Pentecost and what happened next - how Christianity spread around the world. Rev. Williams also came to talk to us about what she likes about the Bible.

History

Our first topic was, 'Were the Anglo Saxons Really Smashing?' We discussed why invaders and settlers might want to come to a new land and whether we would let them in to our area. We decided we would fight them off!

Our second topic was. 'Why Was Islamic Civilisation around 900 AD known as 'The Golden Age'?'. We learnt how advanced the Islamic scholars were in mathematics, astronomy and medicine - they invented anaesthetics and stitches!

Our final topic is, 'Were the Tudors really so Terrible?' We are thinking about the effects of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I's religious reforms on our lives today. Without them, we would not have the Church of England and so no Christ Church Church of England Primary School!

Science

We have studied 'Earth and Space', 'Forces', 'Living Things and their Habitats' and 'Animals Including Humans'. We enjoy practical investigations!

Geography

Would you like to be 'Born in the USA'? We celebrated Thanksgiving, spoke to visitors and did a range of activities to help us decide!

Languages

Years 5 and 6 are now studying Latin, as over 50% of English words are derived from Latin, so this will help us with our English as well! We started by saying 'Salve' to our Roman characters, who actually lived in Vindolanda, near Hadrian's Wall, in the first century AD.

Art and Design Technology

Our themed weeks have included 'Structures' and 'A View from my Window'.
