Winnie The Pooh Visual Literacy Day

Thursday 30 November 2017

A great day was had by all the children and staff last Thursday, as we watched episodes of this children’s classic and created our own Winnie the Pooh pieces of writing.

These included rhyming poetry, descriptions and writing instructions for getting honey ‘Winnie the Pooh style’.

Some super work was produced by all classes and is proudly on display in the hall.

Please take a look at some of the photos of our special day in the gallery.

Severn Trent Water Assembly 7.11.17

Yesterday the whole school were treated to an assembly by Severn Trent Water about how we could all help conserve our water supplies.

Did you know that just by turning off the tap when you clean your teeth you can save 12 litres of water?

After the assembly Mrs Barker and the Eco Team worked with the water officer to create a Saving Water at School Action Plan. Toby, one of Class 4’s Eco members, said one action was to make water saving posters to display around school

Hallowe’en cake sale

A fantastic Hallowe’en cake sale was held on 31 October at FPS organised by FOF.

RLAPP Day 1

Friday 13th October 2017

The Council Chambers

We met the Chairman of Nottingham County Council, Councillor John Handley and the Vice Chairman Councillor Sue Saddington.

They welcomed us to Nottingham County Hall. We introduced ourselves. Where we sat was where Nottingham County Council have their meeting and all the discussion are made there. Just like the Councillors, we spoke into microphones when speaking.
Ellie introduced the school to thirty other schools – 60 pupils and their adults.

The short debates

We had three short debates. Their tiles were:

– Would you like to be a pen or pencil? Why?
– Would you rather have a dog or cat? Why?
– Would you like to move our school to Australia? Why?

Ellie answered two of these stating a pen because if you were a pencil you would get sharpened and England because she wanted to keep her friends.

After a break, we suggested our ideas to help improve Rushcliffe Borough.

Mason suggested more grit Lorries because it is getting a lot colder and the paths and roads will be slippy. Altogether there were 27 different ideas from other children and schools.

The next meeting will be 9th February 2018 1:30pm at the Rushcliffe Arena.

Scarborough 2017

We are delighted to share some photographs in our gallery of our recent visit to Scarborough where the children Class 4 experienced an action-packed residential trip, if a very wet one!

Firstly can I say Mr Callaghan Wetton, Miss Pykett and I were so impressed with how brilliant the children were over the four days; always enthusiastic and keen to get on with the next activity, no moaning about the weather and all had very healthy appetites!

We started off our residential with a journey back in time to the Viking age, with a visit to the Jorvik Centre and ended the day paddling in the sea at Scarborough in our last bit of sunshine!

Waking up the next day, we had a quick breakfast and headed to the Sea Life Centre. We had a very informative morning learning about the seals, otters and a giant turtle amongst others. We then had a very wet game of pirate crazy golf, which was enjoyed by us all. In the afternoon we went rock pooling with our guide. This was so interesting with some incredible finds – including a pregnant crab and an anemone that had made its home in a yoghurt pot.

Class 4’s Talent Show topped off the evening. This was great fun, with acts ranging from card tricks to rapping to dancing unicorns!

The next day we went to visit Scarborough RNLI. We had a very privileged tour of the station and presented our wonderful cheque for £430.34. The lifeboat crew couldn’t believe we had raised so much and as it was such a wet day they allowed us to eat our fish and chips in the boatyard – the only school that have been able to do so. After this we went bowling, we have some champions in the making!

On the final day we had a lovely Full English Breakfast and then walked to the park. There was a break in the weather and we were able to spend time building sandcastles, which was topped off with an ice-cream before a ride on the train along Scarborough sea front.

A class of sleepy children arrived back at school, ready to see parents again and tell them everything that had happened.

The 2017 PGL visit is already in the pipeline. More details will be sent to our current Year 5 and Year 6 pupils shortly.

Football – Runners Up

Well done to our brilliant football team.  They were runners up in the Rushcliffe Small Schools Cup this year.  They worked so hard and just fell at the last hurdle.  A valiant effort by all involved and a show of real FPS Super Six spirit.  We are so proud of them all.
