At Chelsea School we teach from the NZ Curriculum. We provide a broad range of experiences and opportunities to meet the learning needs of our learners in;
Our learners are developing life long learning skills by focusing on our School Values, Learner DNA and developing a Growth Mindset. As our learners grow they develop greater understanding of their abilities and next steps, taking ownership of their learning and goals.
We run a variety of learning support programmes to meet the needs of our learners and where possible enrichment opportunities for identified students.
Staff skills and collaboration when assessing and planning, provide teachers with opportunities to share good teaching strategies that assist learners in understanding more about their own learning and improving outcomes.
Learning support programmes such as;
Steps to Literacy
Specialist music teacher
School wide productions
At Chelsea Primary School, the Nature of Science has been integrated in all classrooms, and in many ways.
The NZC breaks down Science into five contextual strands;
- Planet Earth and Beyond,
- Material World,
- Living World,
- Physical World’
- the Nature of Science (NoS).
Nature of Science :
- Understanding about science
- Investigating in science
- Communicating in science
- Participating and contributing
We start our learning using the…
‘I notice, I think, I wonder concept.
We also use ‘I observe, I predict, I explain.’
