This half term the children have been learning about how God created the world. They listened and watched as the story was recreated with props in the classroom and these were left out for the children to go back to and retell with each other.
St Francis Feast Day
2 years ago Bishop Philip came to visit our school and he suggested that every class have a Saint to commemorate. Reception remember St Francis. Sister Evelyn, from Park Place in Wickham came to visit us. She told us all about St Francis and how he cared for God's creation and his special prayer, the Canticle of the Sun - to Brother Sun and Sister Moon. She explained all about St Francis and his friend St Clare, and how they cared for the poor. She is a Franciscan nun and she explained that she joined his special family - the Franciscans. Lots of children went home and told their own family's about her visit.
