Schools' Games Mark World 5000m Challenge 
 
On Friday 7 October, all children took part in an intra-house 5000m relay run as we are entering the World 5000m Challenge. This is a competition that has taken place all over the world during the past week and our results will be uploaded to the international database to see how we rank! Each child ran between 200m and 400m as part of a team effort to achieve the fastest time. Congratulations went to our house team to St Mary's for coming in first with a time of 14:48. 

Year 6 Tag Rugby as St Bede's 
(Term 1, 2015-16) 

We have been lucky enough to work alongside Tom Luke, the Head of Rugby at St. Bede's. Not only did he come to school to teach a Tag Rugby session to everyone in Year 6, he also arranged a tournament at St. Bede's, where eight lucky children got to compete against children from Catholic Schools across Bristol and North Somerset. 
 
The session we had at St. Francis was great fun, but hard work! Mr. Luke had us playing 'Follow the Leader', whilst passing, placing and picking up the ball. Many of us haven't handled a rugby ball too often, so it wasn't always easy. We then practiced tagging each other by playing 'Beavers and Badgers' - half of us were beavers, half of us were badgers and we had to catch the enemy. The session ended with some seven-a-side games on the playground. Mr. Luke was very impressed and said we were the best Year 6 class he had seen so far! 
 
 
 
Following such great feedback, we couldn't wait for the tournament. Josef, Dolores, Nicola, Harry, Connor, Kira, Jamie and Bela went along to St. Bede's on Thursday 15th October and did the school proud, coming second out of nine teams! The results were as follows: 
 
Pool Games: 
 
St. Francis 6 - St. Nicholas of Tolentine 0 
 
St. Francis 4 - St. Bonaventure's (B) 4 
 
St. Francis 4 - Corpus Christi (B) 2 
 
Final: 
 
St. Francis 3 - St. Bonaventure's (A)  
 
It was a fantastic performance by the team, losing the final by a single try. Well done St. Francis
