Our French UFA group invited parents into school on Friday to experience a French cafe. They created menus, served French food and waited on their guests…. all in French! Everyone was impressed with their language skills and excellent customer service. Mrs Blair did a great job organising it – well done to all involved!
Community Action Group
Some of the children have been involved in the community action UFA group this term. The children planned a coffee morning over in church. We had games, tea, coffee, cakes and biscuits. We even had a visit from a past pupil of the school, Auntie Winifred attended St Francis 80 years ago. Take a look at some of the photos that the children have taken.
The art of Upcycling!
We have been enjoying turning junk into works of art….old t-shirts into stylish bags, tin cans into tealight lanterns and magazines into jewellery!
This term the UFA groups are… Chick Welfare, Sports, Baking, Board games and Cross Stitch… Take a look at the photos of this terms courses.
Every Friday, the children in our junior classes mix up to partake in activities they have applied for. UFA stands for University of the First Age. A range of exciting activies are offered by the staff each half term and the children have a choice which to apply for. So far we offered Art, orienteering, forest schools, sewing, baking, rounders, cricket, outdoor art, Christmas crafts and computing. The children absolutely love UFA and produce some wonderful things using their many skills and talents. We now have a ‘chicken welfare’ group!

The willow dome is ready for its spring trim.
Along with Mr. Bonsall and Mr. Flanagan, some of our pupils went on a detective hunt to try to find the first signs of spring. We walked around the school grounds, including around the church and along the Millenium Walk. Channeling Sherlock Holmes, the pupils took to the task brilliantly!
