Welcome to St Francis!

Our teacher is Miss Argent. Have a look at the amazing things we have been doing!

Meet Our Chicks  

We were lucky enough to hatch 10 cuddly chicks in your classroom as past of our science topic on life cycles and gestation periods. Here are some of our newspaper reports on our experience.

Self Portraits

 In creative hour we have been creating our own self portraits, based on the work by Frida Kahlo. The background of her self portraits included things which were meaningful to her and reflected her hobbies and interests. We attemped to create our own which reflect us, as individuals.

 

 

Gilbert White

As part of our rivers topic we went to Gilbert White Field Studies Centre. When we were there we took part in some river studies including:

  • Measuring the shape of the riverbed
  • Measuring how fast the river moved at different points
  • Investigating what lived in the river and how it had adapted to living there 

We also discussed why people live near rivers and what the size of the river has to do with the population surrounding it.

We ended the day by climbing up a very tall hill and looking at the river from the height, mapping our own rivers by using what we dound on the forest floor.

Have a look at how much fun we had!
