Outdoor Learning at St Francis

Reception at West Runton Beach – July 2018

Reception enjoyed a fabulous family day at West Runton Beach.  The weather was beautiful and the children made some amazing sandcastles. They enjoyed exploring in the rock pools where they found a variety of sea creatures.  Thank you to all the grown ups that joined us on the beach.


Year 2 went on a trip to Bewilderwood

Year 2 went on a trip to Bewilderwood! We had lots of fun whizzing down slides, climbing up nets and finding our way out of mazes! We loved riding on the boat and seeing Mildred the Crocklebog – some of us jumped when she sneezed! We had lunch and then did some den-building. What a great day we had!


Being a Monk

Year 5 spent the day in July learning and reflecting on life as a Monk before the dissolution of the monasteries by Henry VIII. Most agreed a monk’s life would not have been for them.


World War 2 at Duxford

In early June, Year 6 went back in time to WW2 and investigated how Britain defended itself from German invasion – all of this took place at Duxford Imperial War Museum. The costumes were great and helped the children to fully immerse themselves in the visit.


Garden Club – Corton House – May 2018

We thought you’d like to see this picture of our young school gardeners alongside residents of Corton House. The group, accompanied by Mrs Reynolds and Mr Burton, really enjoyed the visit, which was arranged by Henry and Dominic’s grandmother. The children were great ambassadors for the school – well done, everybody!


Year 5 How Hill Residential

In April, the year 5s spent 3 glorious days at How Hill learning about the Broads and its habitat. The children and the learning was exemplary.


The Year 3 children spent the day outdoors learning Archery as part of their Medieval topic


Andy Goldsworthy inspired us outdoors during Artsweek in February


Den Making – February

The whole made dens as part of Arts Week. Good enough for camping overnight?
