Prep 1 and 2 visit to Occombe Farm. In school we have been learning about food groups and eating healthily. Today we found out how much fun making healthy food can be. We made focaccia and added rosemary and tomatoes that we picked in the garden. You can see some vigorous kneading! We got our…
Today Prep 1 were learning about the five senses. We tasted different foods to experience sour, sweet, bitter and salt tastes. Then we used hand lenses to try to see taste buds on each other’s tongues.
Prep 2 and 3 girls had a wonderful afternoon at Exeter university. The children joined with girls from Exeter Cathedral school on the sand pitch for a coaching session. The girls vastly improved their skills and game awareness, learning from the other girls and growing in confidence. Their determination during mini games was impressive! Well done prep…
Today Nursery have been learning letters using the Letterland scheme. Whilst making their Dippy Ducks they have also been learning what it was like to write with feathers!
For the past few weeks Prep 2 have been learning map reading skills, including direction and using an 8 point compass. Friday was the highlight as the class had to create their own treasure map for others to find the treasure! Fantastic directions from all resulted in Chocolate treasure being found!!
Great fun was had at our last woodland club, where the children were challenged to make pictures out of items they found on their treasure hunt. All the ideas the children had, produced super displays, including a stick man and a rocket. Next week the children will be making their own pictures.
The inviting Nursery setting at St Christopher’s has a dedicated indoor and outdoor space, in the heart of the school. Children from the age of rising three can take advantage of the numerous opportunities, facilities, activities and resources on offer in beautiful surroundings.
Our next Open Day is on the 24th September 2020
Prep 4 were given the challenge to build a catapult which is connected to their History this term. They rose to the challenge and had a lot of fun in the process.
This term Prep 5 had the challenge of completing a windmill with sails needing to turn. We had some fabulous results and Prep 5 loved getting their teeth into this project.
Usually we would all be able to celebrate the end of term together and enjoy reflecting on the success of the past year at St. Christopher’s. We started the Autumn term with a phone call from ISI saying that they would be in to carry out an Education Quality and Compliance Inspection. The Inspection Team were scrupulous in their…
On behalf of the whole school we would like to thank one of our lovely parents for making 92 delicious cakes.
