Welcome and welcome back to everyone!
We have uploaded our latest newsletter, the first of this new school year.

Fantastic news, Flintham has been awarded the Artsmark Silver Award! This is a great achievement for a small school. Thank you so much Mrs Smith for all your hard work in gathering evidence, arranging whole school Art Days and submitting our evidence.
The letter we received stated:
Flintham School has made a good start to its Artsmark journey and has clear ambitions to embed the developments made so far. The year has seen an increase in arts provision, through stand alone specialist provision (such as drama and dance) and through a topic based approach to curriculum planning which contains enrichment stimuli for each subject, most of which incorporate the arts.
Congratulations on your Artsmark Silver Award!
As a Silver Artsmark school Arts Council England celebrates your commitment to arts and cultural education and the opportunities emerging across your provision. Your children and young people are offered equal opportunity to participate in a diverse range of arts and cultural experiences and you recognise the importance of development opportunities for your staff in these areas.
You understand the value of working with arts and cultural organisations and are developing partnerships to enhance your provision. Your children and young people have an opportunity to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding of arts and culture and you are working to build on the foundations of your provision.
Well done to all the children and staff at FPS!

A fantastic afternoon on FPS field today
– our annual Sports Day!
So many children winning races and trying their hardest and thank you parents, grandparents and friends for all the great support.
The staff were really impressed with how the houses cheered on each other and lots of lovely comments about how the older children looked after and encouraged the younger members.
Well done all of you and huge congratulations to Beech for winning this year!
Fantastic news! On Monday 9 July 2018, FPS was assessed to see how Eco friendly we are and we did amazingly well and were able to retain our coveted Green Flag.
This is by no means an easy award to achieve and involves a lot of work and completing a range of Eco initiatives throughout the year including bird watching, litter picking and saving water.
We are so proud of our Eco team and the whole school for achieving this award and helping the planet too!
A wonderful time was had by the all at Flintham’s Summer Fair on Sunday. It really is one of the loveliest occasions in Flintham’s school calendar when the whole community comes together. It is a very special occasion – made even more special this year due to the fantastic performances by the musical quartet and the school and Flintham choir – so moving.
A huge thank you to all of you who donated prizes, set up and ran stalls, baked all the delicious cakes and amazing food, came along and joined in the fun, rode a bike for 160 miles or helped clear away. This event could not happen without so many people’s efforts, past and present parents included, and is much appreciated by the school.
A final massive thank you to Amanda and Andrew Crawford.
Andrew – a brilliant compere – so entertaining and a great choice of music!
Amanda – thank you so much for all your organising and giving up so much of your own precious time and being choir master as well!
Thank you again to everyone who came and shared this occasion with us and made it so enjoyable in the gorgeous sunshine!
We raised an amazing £2006.65!
Take a look at the photos in our private gallery.
As recognition for the great work completed in school and at our Forest School club, we have achieved the Silver Woodland Trust Green Tree Schools Award for 2018.
We were only 3 marks from achieving the Gold Award – a definite aim for next year. Well done everyone involved and especially the Eco Team and Mrs Barker!

Weren’t we lucky with the weather! Three fabulous sunny days at PGL this year for Class 4 – what a difference to Scarborough!
Our residential began with a visit to the adventure playground at Belton House – a firm favourite. The spinning top, tyres, fort and water making see-saw proving popular with the children. After a picnic it was off to PGL.
Please look in our gallery to see pictures of our PGL adventure.
Such a mixture of activities this time – climbing wall, buggy building, survivor, zip wire, giant swing and archery to name but a few.
The first evening we had a campfire, with the children singing several, ‘Repeat After Me’ songs like, ‘Moose, Alpaca…’ Can any of you remember the whole song? Then home to Lincoln dormitories and trying to get to sleep.
Tuesday proved another very busy day: in and out of harnesses and even being taught how to whittle a tent peg and use flint and steel to light a campfire during our survivor session. Lots of food eaten in the canteen at tea time and afterwards a game of, ’Capture The Flag’. Where did the children get their energy from? Although, I have to say that night the children were all out like a light at bedtime.
A super final morning of activities, singing songs and a last visit to the shop and it was back on the bus.
Mrs Hall, Miss Pykett and I were all so impressed with how the children tackled every activity – there was some brilliant co-operation seen in problem solving and some lovely kindness shown in helping each other in the dormitory and canteen. Lots of thank yous at home time too, when we got back to school.
Another really big thank you to Mrs Hall and Miss Pykett for coming and adding to the fun and providing such good support.
The books each class chose with the money raised from the Sponsored Spell have started to arrive. The children discussed with their teachers which books they would like to purchase and great choices they are to!
The children are desperate to read them. Please look in our gallery to see pictures of the children with some of their choices.

A fantastic time was had by Year 4 and the teachers during our residential at Conkers and Bradgate Park. The children enjoyed tackling the assault course, riding on the train, playing on the equipment and learning about nature in the indoor science exhibits at Conkers.
The children all ate well at the Youth Hostel, and then after playing games or watching England beat Tunisia, some very tired children soon settled down to sleep.
A full English breakfast in the morning and Year 4 were all packed and ready for Bradgate Park. We are so proud of the children as we all climbed to the highest point- The Needle- and took in the amazing views of the park and grazing deer.
After a last picnic and an ice-cream we were back on the coach and heading for home.
Well done Year 4s, you all co-operated with each other, played nicely and were good company. Thank you very much Mrs Holley for organising the trip, it ran like clockwork, and thank you Miss Pykett for coming and being such good support.
Please look in our gallery to see pictures of our super Year 4 trip.

What a fantastic day we had yesterday when Magical Mayhem came to our school to deliver circus skills workshops!
Each class, and the teachers, thoroughly enjoyed learning how to juggle, spin plates, balance feathers and ride miniature bikes.
Paul also showed the children how to ride a unicycle and the magnificent penny farthing and we had a magical assembly. How did he know which hand the £20 was in?
Super way to celebrate the end of the National SATs tests taken last week by Year 2 and Year 6.
