"To be the best we can be"

Mrs. Wilkinson's retirement: We are having a celebratory Glitz and Glamour FUN THURSDAY (22nd) to mark Mrs. Wilkinson's time here at St. Francis. Children can wear bright and sparkly clothes to celebrate as a St. Francis family (bubbled) with Mrs. Wilkinson. No coloured hair please.

07.09.2020 Celebration Assembly 

Celebration Assembly was a little different today, we were able to be together (virtually) via a link across classrooms. We celebrated children's efforts in returning to school and those who have clearly demonstrated resilience.

 

Congratulations goes to ALL children for a tremendous start to our new school year!

Y5 Pre-history Gallery Session

Year 5 used the Museum Gallery to explore life from 7500BC until 1066AD. 

Y6 Pre-historic handling session

Year 6 learnt about everyday life by exploring objects and discussing their use. The objects were very,very old and came from the Iron Age, Stone Age and Bronze Age. Some were really gross. For example, they used animal fat for candles and there was a stone knife used for skinning animals. (Kayla)

Our first day as journalists!

Year 5 - Young Journalists Academy

 

Today has been the start of an exciting adventure for Year 5, working with John Jerreries from the YJA.

As the children entered school this morning, instead of the average class day, Year 5 entered the world of journalism. At the beginning of the day, we re-introduced ourselves to each other, by sharing our passions and interests. This led us onto interviewing skills, where the children had to find out two facts and a lie. The rest of the class participated, using investigative skills to work out the lie. 

Just before the lunchtime, the children started to research into Fake News, and the reasons for their views. This led us to sum-up the day with understanding more about news articles, how news is spread and our adventures into article writing.

The articles will be created throughout this academic year. 

 

Welcome to the gallery celebrating achievements and events in school!
