Remembrance Day 

Remembrance Day has been commemorated at St Francis School in Nailsea this year by children wearing their Cub and Brownie uniforms. The children also wore poppies and held a one-minute silence at 11am. One pupil commented "We wear our poppies to remember the soldiers that have fought and died in the war." While another said "Lots of poppies grew in the fields where there had been fighting so they help us to remember those who died." A spokesperson for St Francis School said "We are very proud of how respectful and thoughtful the children were in marking Remembrance Day today. They showed great maturity in their reflections." 

Prayer Garden 

The prayer team have created a simple prayer garden at the front of our school. Each class has been visiting the garden during Lent to say some extra prayers and to remember those in need. Parents are welcome to visit the garden for a moment of quiet reflection before or after school each day. In time, we hope to add some extra plants or items that represent our prayers and intentions. Please let Miss Parry know if you have any ideas of ways we can further improve this resource. 

World Book Day 2020 

What an amazing array of book characters were on display! Thank you, parents and carers, for providing such imaginative and varied costumes. Pictured are some of the children sharing the joy of reading with their buddies 

Radio Bristol's Christmas Heroes 

Congratulations to the Prayer team who are Radio Bristol's Christmas Heroes. They have been collecting items to put under our school "Giving Tree" which will be packed up into Christmas parcels and donated to the homeless and refugees in Bristol. Two members of the team, Grace and Chloe, appeared live on the breakfast show on Monday morning with Miss Parry, talking about the work they have been doing and how they have been encouraging others to do acts of kindness during Advent. Well done to them and to the rest of the team! 

Prayer Team Planting Bulbs 

As part of the work the Prayer Team have been doing on Catholic Social Teaching, the children have been out in the autumn sunshine planting bulbs to create an area where we can pray, reflect and give thanks for God's creation. 
Thank you to our RE link governor, Mr Yi, who helped with the bulb-planting. We are looking forward to seeing the daffodils and crocuses flowering in the front flower bed in the spring. 

School Prayer Team 

Congratulations to the children who have been selected to be on our school prayer team this year. The prayer team has become so popular that we now have two teams who will be working together to further improve the prayer life in our school and to put faith into action.  

Circus and Summer Fayre - 2019 

What a fantastic time we all had at the circus! Many people in the wider community remarked on the warmth of the atmosphere of St Francis'. Thank you to all who were involved in making this particular event such a success. 

A Letter from Pope Francis to Year 6 

Year 6 wrote letters to Pope Francis telling him about the work they have been doing at home and at school to spread the Gospel to others. They were over the moon to receive a reply! The Holy Father sent the children his blessing and promised to pray for them and the St Francis' School Community. 

Diego, our school dog 

The children really enjoy their time with Diego, our much loved and very friendly school dog who joins us on Wednesdays. Here he is proudly wearing his new "school uniform"! 

Forest School 

The children are enjoying den building and hunting for natural "woodland treasures" in the wonderful outdoor environment. One child commented "I like building dens because we work as a team" with another adding "it has made our class's teamwork stronger with everyone, not just our friends". 

Feast of St Francis ~ Radio Bristol and Billy the Beagle visit - 2019 

Emma Britton, from Radio Bristol, visited Year 2 and the School Prayer team to talk about St Francis - the patron saint of animals and ecology, and his love of nature. They featured on her morning breakfast show and enjoyed meeting her pet dog – Billy the Beagle. The children told Emma about their favourite animals and how they were celebrating the school feast day.
