Prep 6 have completed their handicraft challenge – to sew their first name initial in buttons. They can now all thread a needle and successfully sew on a button. A task many of them could not manage at the beginning of the challenge. Well done!
Prep 5 have been incubating Indian runner duck eggs this term. Today they were checking on their development!
Pancake races were postponed yesterday due to the poor weather, but today the children found a few minutes to get outdoors and have their races! St. David were the overall winners!
Prep 2 have enjoyed a super-fun last maths lesson before half term – we started off by working out different fractions of 9 – the number of cakes in the packet! Then we used cubes to help us find a quarter, half and third of an amount up to 50. What a lovely way to…
This half term Prep 2 have been studying ‘The Nutcracker’ by Tchaikovsky. They finished the topic by composing their own ‘battle scene’. What a fabulous end to this half term. Well done Prep 2!
In maths today Prep 2 have been finding fractions of amounts. Mrs Edwards found sharing out her bag of fruity chews a great motivator – and the children definitely understood how to find half, a quarter or a third of the packet!
This afternoon Prep 4 have been learning about electricity in their science lesson. The class spent time learning about switches and testing them.
This morning the lower school (Nursery to Prep 2) took to the stage to present their poems on the Olympics. It’s fantastic to see the children reciting their poems so confidently.
Today our Under 11’s have been to Cornwall to take part in the Under 11’s tournament at St Joseph’s School. They had a great time and competed well against the six other schools.
In Prep 2 this morning we have been making amounts of money using three coins, speculating whether larger amounts of money can be made in more ways or not. We are hoping to consolidate skills in finding totals using a combination of coins, making and testing predictions and work systematically! Look at the concentration!!

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.
