Key Stage 1 (Years 1 & 2)
At Christ Church (Church of England) Infant School and Nursery we ensure children receive a broad and balanced curriculum to provide learning that is relevant, exciting, aspirational and challenging. We are committed to meeting the requirements of the Primary National Curriculum and consider the starting points of all learners. We have high expectations for education and care and aim for each child to fully achieve his/her full potential in a caring, supportive and positive environment. We aim to provide our children with the skills and knowledge required for lifelong learning allowing our children to grow and learn together with God by their side.
The Primary National Curriculum highlights English (Reading & Writing), Maths, Science and Computing as core subjects with History, Geography, PE, Art, Music and DT identified as foundation subjects (requiring lesser emphasis but still taught as part of a broad and balanced curriculum). Teaching of foundation subjects may be encompassed in a 'topic' to engage pupils whilst extending their knowledge beyond isolated subject lessons, facilitating application and the transferring of skills. Parents will be informed of the new topic on a half-termly basis to encourage home study. Christ Church also places emphasis on the teaching of Religious Education and the well-being of pupils with Personal, Social, Health and Emotional education (PSHEe) being taught throughout the school.
