Global learning at Christ the Saviour celebrates our christian values, promotes our British values and is committed to upholding our journey as a Rights-Respecting school. It is a cross-curricular subject that celebrates the multi-cultural, multi-faith and ever-changing world around us.
Global learning themes are woven throughout our curriculum from EYFS to Year 6. In KS1 and KS2 each year group has a termly global learning theme or inspirational individual that is embedded in their curriculum.
In addition, discrete Global Learning lessons are delivered on whole school topics that enable everyone in the school community to engage in an issue or theme at the same time.
Each whole school global learning lesson focuses on one aspect of our school vision: nourishing our loving community, offering service, developing our gifts or promoting inclusiveness and tolerance. Examples of lessons that have been taught this year include looking at how bioplastic can be made from bananas, how religious festivals such as Holi, Vaisakhi and Rosh Hashanah are celebrated in different communities and how two primary aged girls from America succeeded in launching a weather ballon into space!
Through our global learning lessons pupils are encouraged to take an active interest in current affairs in their local, national and international community, and to collectively work with others to make our world more peaceful, fair and sustainable. We aim to develop educated global citizens who are aware of, understand and respect the wider world, and their place in it.
