Road Safety Seminar (36 images)

Our Junior Travel Ambassadors have been invited to the road safety seminar at the Oval in October 2013 and October 2014. They collected the silver STAR award, on both occassions, presented to Sir Francis Drake for all of the hard work the school has done to raise awareness around staying safe on and around the roads. They met JTAs from other schools around South East London and shared ideas to come up with plans for future road safety activities. This year we hope to get gold...great work JTAs!

Le Tour de France (60 images)

The Tour de France came to Sir Francis Drake early....children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 cycled around places of interest in France on Thursday afternoon. Of course they needed to have their passports stamped by our passport controllers as they visited and left each place, which all ran very smoothly thanks to the help of children in Years 5 and 6. They stopped for refreshments in the pit stop after their tour having enjoyed their visit to France for the afternoon! Thank you to everyone who helped make it possible.

The Insect Man (54 images)

The Insect Man visited Sir Francis Drake on Wednesday 2nd April, it's always great fun when he comes in with his 'friends'. This term it was the turn of years 5, 6 and Reception, they were treated to lizards, spiders, snails, cockroaches, snakes and a centipede! Lots of brave children held insects and reptiles for the very first time in Reception and enjoyed it as you can see from the photographs, all children and insects were very well behaved!

Junior and Infant performances December 2013 (38 images)

Children in the Juniors were amazing in their production of 'Hoodwinked', a version of the story of Robin Hood...the singing, dancing and acting was comparable to that of a West End production! The Infant children shone in their performance of 'The Little Red Robin', which was the story of the Nativity with a twist...again the singing, dancing and acting was absolutely fantastic. A big thank you must go out to all of the staff and parents that helped the children to put on such great performances. Well done Sir Francis Drake Children!

Sir Francis Drake visits 1963... (40 images)

We celebrated our school's 50th birthday on 27th September. Class teachers used chalk boards to teach computers in 1963! We had a special assembly, Mr and Mrs Mouquet came to visit, they were teachers who taught here in 1963 when the school first opened, they shared some very interesting stories with us. At playtime children played hopscotch and used skipping ropes and chalk to make up their own playground games. After lunch the celebrations continued with snacks, drinks and jelly and ice-cream! We enjoyed 1963...
