A little while ago, as part of an RE lesson, 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. This week they received a reply! The Holy Father sends the children his blessing and promises 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"!
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
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.
KS2 Singing Festival
Our KS2 singers represented the school so tunefully and with such infectious enthusiasm at a concert in Clevedon. Mrs Baker’s singing group’s performance was outstanding and we thank her for all her work with the children this year.
