We hope you had a lovey Christmas and New Year.

This Term our topic in Reception is Journeys.

During the first half term we will be focusing on the story, Whatever Next.

This is a story about Baby Bear who wants to go to the moon. He uses his imagination to make a rocket and go on an adventure to the moon.

The children will be complete lots of fun activities such as:

Using talk for writing to learn the story, put actions into the story and create their own story,

count backwards- for take off.

role play going to the moon in a rocket.

problem solve.

We are focusing on embedding basic skills along with:

linking letters and sounds to read and write words and sentences.

practically adding and subtracting an beginning to record number sentences.

Welcome to RBF


A big welcome to all our children who have started Reception at St Christopher's after the summer break. We are delighted with how well the children have settled into RBF.


Sunny days

outdoor learning is an important part of the early years curriculum so the children spend a lot of time outside. On sunny days please ensure your child has suncream, a cap and a water bottle. Thank you.



PE is on a Wednessday. Please can you ensure that your child's school uniform, coat, PE kit and PE bag is clearly labelled with their name.



Book Bags

Please can your child bring their book bag to school everyday as we don't have a set day for reading. Your child will bring home a reading book. Please feel free to write any comments about how they got on in the reading diary. Your child will also bring home a library book for you to share. Remember, you can record any book, magazine or comic you have read with your child. Children will be give a sticker each time they read at home and when they reach 20 stickers can choose a small prise.


Water bottle

Your child can bring water into school in a water bottle with a sports cap. The bottles need to be labelled with your child's name.





Thank you Mrs baxter, Miss Franklin, Miss Lamb and Miss Gargan.






Here are some of the fun things we have been learning and doing since starting school.

Independent Learners

We are encouraging our children to be independent learners. You can help with this by giving your child the opportunity to dress and undress themselves, help with jobs at home and to be responsible for bringing their book bag, lunch bag and PE kit into school.
