Just before Christmas we had a crack news team look at all the sport on offer at St Francis. This is a brief edit of their extensive study of sporting excellence and fun.

Watch out! There’s a boggart about!

Year 1 had great fun creating boggarts on the trees outside. They used clay and natural items such as leaves and sticks.

Into the Underworld at the Royal Northern College of Music

Year 6 had the amazing opportunity to help create an opera based on the story of Orpheus in the Underworld with composers and musicians from the world famous Royal Northern College of Music. There were four schools involved, who each took a scene from the story and put together the music and action. The final opera was performed on the stage at the RNCM with a full orchestra and real opera singers. It was a wonderful performance from all the children and it great to see how many parents and staff went to support our children.

Our 2015 Year 6 also took part in this project and created an opera called After the Storm. Follow this link to see their photos and video.

Reverse Advent

Our Year 5 and 6 children have being collecting items of food for a reverse advent calendar…they have filled the calendar rather than taking things out! They decided to do this for Cornerstones, a local charity that support the homeless. A lovely, kind gesture that shows our school values in action. Thanks to Mr Connolly for organising it.
