Today in Prep 2 we have been investigating addition – using up to 5 single digit numbers to create totals. It has been lots of fun!

Nursery have had a lovely first week back at School and this term they are learning all about transport. The children have been in small groups to learn about the different types of transport. Whilst the sun was shining the teachers also decided this was a great chance to use the new outdoor learning area.
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.
