HARVEST 3ST FRANCIS DAY 038file10HARVEST 2imageIMG_4877

We meet every Monday in our Cottage and have over half of the school enthusiastically involved! The children plan meetings, take their own minutes and create newsletters for parents of St. Francis. These go over to church so our parishioners are always well informed about what is going on in school!

Glee Club

We’ve started September 2017 with an exciting new club, ‘Glee Club’. Children have the opportunity to sing, dance and act. Each week children participate in a singing warm-up teaching correct technique and develop confidence joining in drama games. We are currently learning an Annie medley which collectively puts together all the things the children learn week to week into an exciting musical performance. The children are super starts and always put in 100% effort every week. Here are a few pictures of an acting game making objects in groups and a few picks of the children learning ‘A Hard Knock Life’.

Diddy Dribblers

Diddy Dribblers

We have started out Diddy Dribblers football coaching in Key stage 1. We had a great start, and the children learned about dribbling, ball control and played lots of games too. The children were, of course, fantastic. Have a look at the photos  below…

(Any further interest please see Miss Taylor in the office.)

We are entering the final week of our first session with Diddy Dribblers. We have been learning ball skills and playing games and we have been playing mini matches too. The children have come along way in a short time. If you too would like to join this wonderful club for reception and key stage 1 children pleasee see Mrs Taylor in the office.

St. Francis’ Table Tennis Club

Over half the children from Key Stage 2 took part in St Francis’ first ever ‘Table Tennis’ club. The children really enjoyed learning new skills and using the new equipment.

 

St. Francis’ Band and Choir

Some of our school band played in the Advent service in church. Children from Reception class can be in the choir and band and all musicians have a wonderful time.
