It was lovely to welcome more of our pupils back to School today to finish off the summer term, and we look forward to welcoming back more Children next week. A big thank you to all our parent’s who have supported us.
This afternoon Prep Reception have had an impromptu Science lesson looking at frogs and how they disguise themselves to look like leafs. Most of the children seemed to enjoy it…..
It’s great to see our Nursery class back in School and enjoying time with their friends. Unfortunately we have had to limit the use of some of the playground equipment but it didn’t stop them using their imagination using water and a paint brush!
As we continue to plan for the further opening of School we have decided to utilise the large car park so it can be used for outdoor learning and play during the day times. What a great space we have created.
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.

Today Prep 2 have been experimenting with equipment to enable them to make circuits to light up bulbs, make buzzers and work a fan. They successfully worked out how to do all of these things. Great fun was had by everyone! A lovely Science lesson to end the term.
Nursery and Prep Reception had an end of term treat. We went out and explored our Woodland area, made a wood medallion, searched for wood, learnt how to light a fire and even got the chance to roast marshmallows…….delicious!
This week we have been investigating the weight of different objects in our Maths lessons. Today we went on a journey around the school to find things that were ‘heavy’ or ‘light.’ The boys were very excited to find out that a big leaf was heavier than a stick! The investigating continues………..
The teachers have been taking advantage of the beautiful South Devon weather today and teaching some of their lessons outside. Prep Reception are exploring nature to learn about Maths, Prep 1 have been outdoors for their ICT lesson learning about algorithms and Prep 3 have had an outdoor music lesson.
