Curriculum

At chriswil Schools, we follow the Curriculum prescribed by the Ministry of Education in Nigeria, but through keen study and careful observation has improved upon this curriculum to enhance the learning perspective of our pupils.

Our curricula are guided towards building up our pupils academically, socially, culturally, spiritually and ethically.

There are three core curriculum subjects: English, maths and science. These subjects are given a greater amount of teaching time each week as one of the main remits of a primary and secondary school is to develop pupils and students’ basic skills so they can be successful in the subsequent phases of their education. Learning to read, write and calculate, for example, are keys to access the rest of the curricum.

English

We offer the children a very broad range of reading and writing experiences. Our students and pupils develop reading and writing skills across a broad range of styles. These include:

descriptive writing                    journalistic writing                            discursive texts                      

letter writing                             poetry                                                explanatory texts        

narrative                                    recounts                                             newspaper reports

Children must have well developed oracy skills they are to make good progress with their reading and writing. For this reason, the development of speaking and listening is an essential element in all literacy lessons.

Mathematics

Lessons start with children doing daily mental arithmetic exercises. This helps them learn to calculate in their heads. Our mathematics curriculum is divided into seven areas:

  • Using and applying mathematics
  • Counting and understanding numbers
  • Knowing and using number facts
  • Calculating
  • Understanding shapes
  • Measuring
  • Handling datas

Science

Each child will experience the following aspects of science during their time at Chriswil Schools:

  • Scientific enquiry
  • Life and living processes

Information Communication Technology (ICT)

Rapid technological change is altering the way we live. It is also shaping the world of work, as tasks that have traditionally been done by people are now being done by computers and machines. If pupils at Chriswil are to be competitive when they leave compulsory education and enter the workforce it is imperative that they are confident and accomplished users of IT. We aim to;

  • Ensure pupils leave Chriswil School achieving high levels of ICT competency
  • Maximize the potential ICT has to enhance students and pupils’ learning
  • Use ICT creatively to make children’s learning exciting and enjoyable

The study of ICT involves children learning about how different forms of technology are used. A principal area of study is learning how to use a computer to find, present or store information. We also provide opportunities for pupils to learn how to use digital cameras, video cameras, scanners, programmable robots and other technological devices.
