St Francis' School 40th Anniversary 
On October 1st 2019 Bishop Declan visited St Francis' School because we were celebrating our 40th Anniversary. It was also the start of the Month of Mission and Year 6 organised a special Mass which was said by Bishop Declan and con-celebrated by Fr Reg and Fr Tom. Children dressed up in national costumes and read the bidding prayers in different languages to represent the diversity of our school and to remind us that we are called to spread Jesus' love to all nations. We carried coloured flags to the altar to represent the different continents. It was a very successful Mass with some excellent singing and upbeat songs and the hall was filled with excitement, enthusiasm and joy. After Mass some of our class interviewed Bishop Declan about the Month of Mission and he told us that we should share what we have with others and we should spend extra time in prayer. We are very grateful to Bishop Declan for coming to see us and we all enjoyed the special Mass. The memories of this occasion will stay with us for a long time.

Faith in Action Award 
The children in Year 6 have started working towards a FAITH IN ACTION AWARD, an award similar to the Duke of Edinburgh award, which encourages young people to live out their faith by serving others. We are the first school in the Diocese to sign up for the award and the children are very excited to be taking part. This term, to put their faith into action, they have made cards for the elderly and donated items to the homeless. They have also been helping with lots of jobs around the school such as sweeping up the leaves and answering the telephones in the office.

Master Class 
On 24th January, pupils and staff from Clifton High school visited our classroom to lead a Master Class. They had come to share their knowledge of Science and Maths and to teach us a bit about Space. 
The title of the class was "Measuring the Universe" and using our measuring skills we worked out the size and weight of the earth. 
We enjoyed learning about shadows and different ways of measuring distances. 
Kite Making 
We have been helping our buddies to make Kites. 
First we designed the kites, then we copied the designs onto some parachute material. We helped our buddies to colour in the picture and decorate the kite. 
We are going to add some sticks to make a frame and attach some string and a tail. 
We are hoping for a good windy day so we can take our kites onto the school field and help our buddies to fly them.

Rainbow Wraps 
As part of our science work we took part in a Healthy Eating workshop where we found out about the importance of a balanced diet. We made Rainbow Wraps and sampled vegetables we had never tasted before such as beetroot and raw onion. We filled our wraps with lots of brightly coloured fillings including peppers, carrots, cucumber and cheese. They tasted delicious!

Have you ever seen anyone this happy to do the washing up?! 
Another unsuccessful crate stacking attempt! 
All aboard the Katakanu! 
We don't normally encourage playing with fire... 
During the last week of term 5, Year 6 went to the Brecon Beacons to visit the Acorn Adventure camp site at Tan Troed. We had a fun-filled and busy week doing many activities, including katakanuing, climbing, high ropes, bushcraft, raft building and more. Not all of these activities were easy! Just in case you thought we weren't busy enough, we even had evening activities to complete as well. The instructors did a great job of organising games, races, sing-songs and even a camp fire so we could toast marshmallows. At one point, some children were toasting multiple marshmallows at the same time and then eating them at once - it was quite messy! We all had a fantastic time on camp and learnt something new about ourselves, whether it was pushing yourself to achieve or realising that you could do something new. A great week with wonderful memories! 
Walking across tyres is easy! (Unless you're blindfolded.) 
No children were harmed in the taking of this photo. 
We were incredibly confident that the raft would float... honestly! 
What a week!

End of Year Production - Year 6 has got talent 
This years production took the form of a talent show, based on Britains Got Talent, with a good variety of acts including singing, dancing, magic tricks, tennis skills and a poetry recital. The hall had been beautifully decorated by Miss Parry and the Friends of St Francis, and parents, governors, friends and relatives came along to watch. The atmosphere was amazing and there was lots of cheering, clapping, laughter and smiles as each performer took to the stage. Freddie and Luca took the roles of Ant and Dec and introduced each act. The teachers were the judges and they were amazed by the range of talents that were demonstrated. One of them said that we all deserved the Golden Buzzer! Although we were a bit nervous beforehand by the time we were on the stage we felt so excited and made our parents extremely proud. We all agreed it was one of the best experiences of our lives because it was so much fun. At the end we got presented with our Leavers jumpers and we said Thank you to Miss Parry and everyone who helped.
