St Francis' 
Catholic Primary School 
 
 
The Prayer team were invited to spend the afternoon with Bishop Declan to talk about the Year of Mission. They travelled to his home in Leigh Woods where they were shown around his house and garden, shared photos of activities they had been doing in school and asked him lots of questions about his role as Bishop. Each class had submitted a question that they would like answered and the interview was recorded so the Bishop's responses could be played back to the whole school in Assembly. The Prayer team felt very honoured to be invited to Bishop Declan's house and enjoyed spending time with him and eating some rather delicious cakes which he had provided!A very warm welcome to St Francis' Catholic Primary School

Inter-School Football Tournament ~ Pupil Report 

On 18 June, 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.
