PATHS (Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies)
We have recently introduced a teaching programme called PATHS (Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies) for all pupils at St Christopher’s. PATHS helps children develop life skills such as problem solving, impulse control, emotional awareness and confidence. In school we encourage children and adults to compliment each other.
On Thursday 17th March, eight of our Year 5 & 6 pupils participated in the prestigious 'UK National CoSpace Championship' hosted by BT Education. This was the largest CoSpace Championship to take place anywhere in the world so far this year. After a closely fought competition, we are pleased to announce that one of our teams was crowned 'UK National CoSpace Virtual Robotics KS2 Champions 2016'.

Charlotte Ennals from the Norfolk Farming & Wildlife Advisory Group approached our school several weeks ago with a ‘Breaking New Ground’ project which is Heritage Lottery funded to provide landscape projects in the heart of the Brecks area. It provided us at school with some Scots Pine saplings to plant in the school grounds. This was so we could help continue the tradition of planting pine tree lines in our local area.
