Christ Church CE (c) Primary School
At Christ Church we value ourselves, each other and the environment by showing respect, caring and taking responsibility.
Alongside this, we strive to:
- Form strong relationships with both our peers and adults in school, looking after one another.
- Be reflective and taking responsibility for our learning.
- Show resilience towards any challenges that we face.
- Take risks so that we can aspire to be the very best learners, workers and members of society.
- Be resourceful, in challenging situations by using our problem solving skills.
It is through our beliefs and values that we ensure enjoyment, happiness and academic excellence.
Our British values also underpin our school ethos and we develop our understanding of these throughout our curriculum.
We are proud to be a Church School, which continues to nurture and develop our Christian ethos through links to both our Church and the Diocese.

Year 4 learn about Hinduism
Last week Year 4 had a visit from Mrs Kumar, who helped them to learn about Hinduism. She talked to the children about what Hindu's believe. They also found out information about Hindu fesitvals and looked at what they wear. Thank you Mrs Kumar.
This year, we have introduced some new extra-curricular activites for the children to experience. One of the new sport that is on offer is Handball. The children have been learning about the rules of this new sport and have really enjoyed playing matches against each other in the club.
Year 6 visit the Think Tank
On Tuesday 27th January 2015, Year 6 went on a trip to the Think Tank in Birmingham. They learned about how different things, in the past, present and future, work and they also found out about our planets in the amazing Planetarium. They had a wonderful time at the Think Tank but also thoroughly enjoyed catching the train to and from Birmingham. They were an absolute pleasure to take and were a credit to the school. Well done Year 6!
Young Voices January 2015
On Wednesday 14th January a group of children from Years 4, 5 and 6 attended the Young Voices concert at the LG Arena. They had an amazing time singing and dancing to lots of different types of styles of music, from lots of different cultures. Both the children, staff and parents who came to watch, had an fantastic time. Well done to all involved.
Carol Singing at Waitrose
Yesterday, 18 children from Christ Church (along with a few parent volunteers), sang carols at Waitrose to bring some Christmas cheer and raise money for Christ Church. They all sang beautifully and raised £123.11. Well done to everyone who sang and thank you to everyone for their support.
Over the past six weeks, 10 of our Year 6 children have been learning how to become police cadets. The children have had a brilliant time taking part in problem solving projects and learning about initiatives used to address key issues in their communities around crime prevention and community safety. Well done to all involved.
There was a new after school club this term - sewing club. The children had a fantastic time, learning how to create different sewing stitches. Their final project was to make personalised badges. Don't they look wonderful?!
Year 6 Learning Outcome
This Tuesday afternoon, Year 6 held their Learning Outcome. Parents came to
see a big range of activities that the children had created themselves to show
what they had been learning this term. We were so proud of how much effort the
children put in to the afternoon, and grateful to parents for taking time out
Year 6 Art Gallery
On Friday 21st November, Year 6 hosted an art gallery for parents so that they could see the fantastic pieces of art they had created as part of their art topic, along with the work. Look out for some of their fabulous paintings displayed around school.
Year 6 go to Kingswood
Last week Year 6 had a fun filled week on their residential at the Kingswood Centre in Staffordshire. Each day was packed with activities, some of the favourites being: quad biking, zip-wire, power climb, abseiling and laser quest. Every child challenged themselves and loved being able to experience something new and exciting! In addition to the busy days, we also enjoyed a range of evening activities, such as, campfire, movie night and mini-Olympics. We are extremely proud of all the children and the way that they represented Christ Church.
Well done Year 6, a tiring but wonderful week away!
The Year 5 'Big Question' debate
Today, Thursday 23rd October 2014, Year 5 held their learning outcome debate all about deforestation...is it a good thing or not? Parents were invited to see this fantastic event take place. The children used all the knowledge that they had learned this half term around their big question 'Why is Brazil in the news again?'. It was a brilliant afternoon and the amount of knowledge that they children shared was unbelievable!
New books in each Year group
On Friday 17th october 2014, 14 children were selected to go to H & H Spalding Books in Barton to help choose some new books for their year group. We have kindly been given money from the School Association to purchase new books and shelving. It was a real treat for all the children who went, as they could choose 100 new books for their year group to read and enjoy. We can't wait to have the books and shelving in school after half term.
ALL THE CHILDREN AT CHRIST CHURCH WOULD LIKE TO SAY A MASSIVE THANK YOU TO SCHOOL ASSOCIATION FOR GIVING US MONEY TO DO THIS.
