What have we been doing?

 Design and Technology Week

This week the children have been creating DT projects. The children have been learning about the process of designing an item, making prototypes and finally creating their final product. 




First Holy Communion 

On Saturday 27th April, some of the children on St Francis Catholic Primary school received the sacrament of Holy Communion for the first time. It was a very special day for all the children who celebrated with their families at church.

Lenten Roadshow

Some children from Year 4 took part in a Lenten Roadshow with children from St Edmund's. The children lead the school in a reflection to prepare us for Easter. They then went and lead the children of St Edmund's in a Lenten reflection too.

First Confession

The Holy Communion children went the convent to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time. This a chance for them to confess their sins and say sorry to God. They received a penance in the form of a prayer and their sins were forgiven. 


First Confession Workshop

The Holy Communion children have been taking part in workshops with children from St Clare's in preparation for their First Confession and Holy Communion. The children enjoyed taking part in a range of activities to help them to understand the importance of their confession and to become closer to God.


World Book Day 



The children had a lovely time celebrating World Book Day. The children dressed up as their favourite characters, created masks about their favourite books and shared their favourite books with different year groups across the school. 

The Animal man


The children of Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 had a lovely time when the Animal Man came to visit as part of their Science topics. The children got to learn about a variety of different animals and even got to hold some of them too.
