Thank you to all who attended our African themed Harvest Festival at St Augustine’s Church on Wednesday in aid of the Tanzanian Education Fund.
We are so proud of how the children behaved during the service; performing their pieces and singing our tricky African songs in Congolese and Swahili so beautifully. To raise money, the children have been learning about the Tanzanian artist Edward Tingatinga and his unique style.
The children have each produced their own canvas painting of Tinga Tinga art, which are being offered for sale to parents. Many of the pictures were taken to the church and looked absolutely fantastic and certainly set the scene for our African service.
We look forward to meeting Reverend Ruth Colby very soon and having her being a member of our school community and becoming a frequent visitor to FPS.
Our football team had their first football match of the season on Thursday 19 September, against Gunthorpe at home. It proved to be a real ‘nail-biter’!
Gunthorpe were 2-1 ahead at half-time. F.P.S. worked really hard during the second half, but one minute from time were 2-3 down. In the last minute of the match F.P.S. managed to equalize and when the final whistle blew the score was 3-3.
Both sides agreed a draw was the right result. Mr Knott is really pleased with the team; especially the sportsmanship shown and the way the new players got involved. Well done and thank you Mr Knott for organising the Small Schools League.

A super afternoon was had by all at our Summer Fair after school on Friday 5 July. Such a wonderful afternoon and the range of stalls was amazing.
Thank you so very much to all those parents, friends and grandparents who ran stalls or donated prizes and all those who came and joined in the fun.We really do appreciate all your support and your generosity in raising funds for the school. A big thank you to Mr Hurst for providing the ice-poles and drinks for Sports Day and the Summer Fair.
The fair raised an unbelievable £1800!
The final mention must go to Amanda Smith and Claire Voce for all their amazing efforts with the organisation – the work this takes cannot be underestimated— a HUGE THANK YOU to you both!
Something to be aware of…next year’s May Day Bank Holiday has been moved from Monday 4th to Friday 8th May to commemorate the VE Day anniversary.
Our 2019 – 20 Holiday Dates pdf has been updated to reflect this.
A fantastic evening was had by all the schools in the Trust on 20 June 2019, at the Albert Hall in Nottingham!
400 children from the 10 schools’ choirs came together to celebrate singing. It is the first time Flintham have taken part and it was such an amazing and uplifting event! Our choir, under the expert directorship of Amanda Crawford, as always sang beautifully making us all so very proud. The children had attended a workshop in the afternoon – practicing individual and group songs and then performed in front of parents in the evening. This is definitely going to be another annual event.
Please look in our private gallery at photos and to find a video link to view a sample of the evening concert.
An amazing £610 was raised by our FOF at Saturday’s Jumble sale at East Bridgford!
A huge THANK YOU to all our donators, helpers and parents for making this such a successful fund raising event and willingly giving up their valuable spare time. A special mention to the organisers: Mrs Lambert, Mrs Storey and Mrs Otton for all their hard work.
FPS entered our first ever Ultimate Frisbee Tournament on Thursday 6 June, 2109.
Our Class 4 team of 5 girls and 6 boys had a brilliant Equals Trust day practising skills in the morning and playing 4 matches in the afternoon. Some of the coaches were members of the GB Team!
All of our players performed so competitively and we came a very respectable 7th out of 12 teams. Remember we are the smallest school. Our proudest moment was being one of the 3 teams mentioned for showing true sportsmanship in the ‘Spirit of the Game’ competition. Well done team! We’re definitely entering next year!
A super time was had by Class 4 in sunny Scarborough in the three days leading up to half-term. The children were a delight to take away and spend time with and the weather was fabulous.
Our adventure began at Eden Camp, an ex POW camp that has been turned into a WWII Museum, it really brings such an important period in our history to life. Next it was on to Scarborough Youth Hostel.
The following morning we were up and out early, spending time playing on the beach before having a rock pooling session led by a local expert. We learned about and caught a variety of crabs as well as finding other shellfish and anemones. After this it was off to the Sea life Centre. The children thoroughly enjoyed seeing the vast range of marine animals including sea horses, otters, seals and penguins. A highlight of the visit was finding out about how amazing starfish are—ask one of the children to tell you, they really are stars! Also, we got to see the fantastic giant turtle being given her tea.
Next it was off for a well earned ice-cream before heading back to the youth hostel. Many of the children rose to the challenge of taking part in our talent show, where many hidden talents came to light—comedy , piano playing, singing and magic acts! A great evening was had by all.
Friday morning was glorious and we are so proud of the children as they yomped all the way from the North to the South beach, not one murmur of being tired! We were then treated to a tour of the RNLI Lifeboat station and a chance to get up close to their boats and all the kit the crew wear. Finally, we had a picnic on the beach, keeping a tight hold on our sandwiches because of the seagulls, before catching the coach and coming back to school.
A big THANK YOU to Miss Pykett and Mr Knott for helping make our residential such a pleasure and well done children for being such good company. Roll on next year! Please look in the private gallery to view all the photos.
