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.
A big thank you to Mrs Sheldon for bringing the two lambs, Poppy and Zoe, to see us!
We all look forward to this annual event at school and the chance to cuddle and feed the lambs. So many children and adults with huge smiles on their faces as the lambs made themselves at home in the Class 1 outside area.
Well done Ash! Our first ever winners of the ‘House Tokens Treat’; the final totals for each house were so close.
Thank you School Council for counting them all.
This time the treat was an ice lolly and extra play. The jars have been emptied ready for after half term. Let’s keep showing respect to everyone and everything in our school and keep being kind and determined to do our best. Your house could be next!
Easter Egg Decorating Competition
WOW! The staff of FPS couldn’t believe the amazing egg transformations that arrived on Thursday morning. So creative, so difficult to judge! We loved them all. Well done children! Photographs in the next newsletter, showing our winners and all the wonderful entries.
A massive thank you to Mrs Thacker for organising and selling tickets all week for our Easter competitions and parents for donating such wonderful prizes. The children thoroughly enjoyed entering them and £146 was raised for school funds! Fantastic!
Another very successful bake sale was held on the last day of term by FOF. A huge thank you to all those parents and children who made and sold such yummy cakes. Once again, everything was sold and an incredible £107.95 raised!
We are so lucky at FPS to have parents who are willing to give so freely of their time to support our school. Thank you.

A great sporting day was had at FPS today! So many different sports represented from rugby and tennis to cheerleading and horse riding.
Thank you Miss Pykett and Mason for leading the whole school warm-up before our house fitness competition.
Congratulations Oak for winning the event and earning ten house tokens! I’m sure there were some very tired children this evening.
Thank you Mrs Sharphouse, Mrs Hall, Mrs Smith and Mrs Holley for all your hard work arranging today.
On Tuesday the whole school took part in a waste management day as part of EDF’s Waste Management week.
Lydia Powles from Nottinghamshire County Council came in to teach us lots about managing waste. She led a whole school assembly on what happens to our waste and how to reduce, reuse and recycle. The focus of our day was on recycling paper.
Lydia taught each class throughout the day the effects and importance of recycling paper. All the children then got to recycle paper and made their own recycled paper to take home.
As part of our keeping healthy topic Class 2 had an exciting trip to Pizza Express in Grantham.
The children learned about food hygiene and then were taught how to make Pizza’s by a real pizza chef called a Pizzaiolo.
Whilst the pizzas were baking they then took part in a food quiz learning about different fruits and vegetables and where they came from around the world. All the children had great fun and were very proud of their pizzas. We think that they looked like real chefs in their hats and aprons.
What an exciting day the whole school had yesterday! Working in houses, the children had to answer the following questions :
- How do oil spills affect the environment?
- How long does it take for celery to suck up water?
- And what type of soil do earthworms prefer?
Also, we used our lovely environment and the children carried out a ‘Terrific Tree Investigation’. This day was a great way of carrying out a range of scientific experiments; making sure testing was carried out ‘fairly’ and therefore having scientific value and increasing children’s scientific knowledge, terminology and understanding.
Thank you Mrs Holley for organising such an interesting day.
This exciting event has been brought to our attention and could well be worth a visit for our budding scientists –
