Mile A Day 

The weather did not put all of us at St Francis School off with starting our new 'Mile A Day'. From Reception to Year 6 all the children and staff got involved and contributed to getting fit and healthy by a quick run/walk/skip/jog around the school grounds. In celebration of our new 'Mile A Day' the children brought in money to help support children in Jordan buying food and drink. Well done everyone for getting involved and running with big smiles on your faces.

Year 2 Olympics 

Year 2 completed their very own mini olympics at Hannah More Infant School and came out with some fantastic results.

Reception and Year 1 Multiskills Festival 

Reception and Year One class both took part in a school multi skills festival on Friday afternoon. The event was ran by Mr German and our school sports leaders. It consisted of 8 groups participating in a carousel of games earning points at each station. The games were targeting at team work and hand and ball skills. The sports leaders did a fantastic job of teaching the game before the action took place to the sound of the whistle. Well done to all the children who took part! 
 

 
 
Years 5 and 6 Inter-School Football Tournament ~ Pupil Report 

A team of Year 5 and 6 children from St. Francis’ went to Wraxall Primary School to take part in a local football tournament. There were six teams in total from the local area – St. Francis’, Wraxall, Court-de-Wyke, Golden Valley, Kingshill and Backwell Juniors. The teams were put into two groups and the winners of each group would meet each other in the final. Whilst we did our best to think positively, we were a little worried that we had been placed in the group for larger schools because we are considerably smaller! 
Our first match was against Backwell. The highlight of the match was when Benji made a break down the line, crossed the ball and Will finished it off. We then scored another and won the match 2 – 0. Our second match was against Golden Valley and we won that one 2 – 1. 
That meant we had topped our group and were in the final against Court-de-Wyke. It was a tough game but we managed to win 1 – 0! Everyone on the team did an excellent job and we are very proud of our trophy. 

Mini Marathon 2018 

The children worked hard in our sponosored 'Mini Marathon' raising money for the NSPCC. All of St Francis had a fantastic afternoon cheering eachother on and running as many laps as they could as a class in 8 minutes. The children worked together in a whole school, fun warm up and also motivated one another, when children were tired and struggling. Well done to all of the children for giving it a good go and doing an amazing job for such a good cause. 

Year 5 Rugby Tournament 2018 

The children had a fantastic morning playing Tag Rugby against Golden Valley and Kingshill. The morning consisted of training and learning the basic tag rugby skills followed by playing 4 games each. The children showed fantastic teamwork skills, they cheered for one another and helped each other to develop their skills, playing to each others strengths. Year 5 also had the opportunity to gain an understanding on what it takes to be good sportsmen and women making sure they ended the game by shaking hands.
