Reducing Plastic Waste

FPS and our Eco team have made the decision to work towards greatly reducing our reliance on ‘single– use’ plastic in school.

We have taken this move to send a positive message to all the children about how we all have a part to play in preserving the planet and our desire to stop using throwaway cartons, straws and wrappers. The children have been given reusable plastic bottles and the milk arrives in recyclable glass bottles.

A big THANK YOU to all our parents who have embraced our initiative.

Toy Story Visual Literacy Day

Thursday 28 November

FPS was full of walking, talking toys on Thursday as the children arrived in their costumes for our Toy Story Literacy Day. In the library cowboys, space rangers, dinosaurs, soldiers, Little Bo Peeps and Andys and Sids were seated and ready to begin.


The children were spellbound watching the film and were brilliant at describing the characters, explaining the plot and the toys’ relationships with each other.

The film inspired some really super writing across a range of different genre including: stories, monologues, character descriptions and toy adverts.
Slinkies, Mr Potato Heads, aliens and other toys also appeared in classrooms as the children spent part of the afternoon creating some of the characters from a range of mediums.

Another highly successful enrichment day.

FPS Hedgehog Day

What a wonderful start to the new half-term, with each class having a session learning about one of our native mammals—the hedgehog!

Janet Peto and Sally, both from the Hedgehog Welfare, spent part of the day in each class explaining to the children how to care for these animals and we even had a real hedgehog in school.

The children were full of facts they had learned—one being baby hedgehogs are called ’hoglets’, and another fact is their spikes start to appear two hours after they have been born! Eco team had their own session during assembly. They have been left some boxes and taught how to build hedgehog homes and in the future we hope to have a dedicated “Hedgehog Zone” in the school grounds.

Thank you to Mrs Barker, our Eco Lead, for arranging this visit.

Equals Trust Tanzania Visit

Mrs Bartlett joined all the other head teachers from Equals Trust on an amazing visit to their link schools in Tanzania near the end of half term. Flintham Primary School’s link school is Nianjema Primary School, Bagamayo. This trip was sponsored by the British Council.

On the first day, the teachers were given a fantastic welcome; visiting three of the schools and being greeted with so many smiles and shown some amazing traditional dances, drumming and singing. The heads of all the schools then had a meeting to discuss our joint project and to plan activities. Continue reading

FPS HARVEST FESTIVAL

Wednesday 9th October
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.

 

 

First Football Match of Season

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.

The Legend of Robin Hood

Please enjoy this animation made by children from Class 4 about a local legend Robin Hood. Follow the link: https://youtu.be/W0uzYEZ1omg

Mrs Bartlett is going to take it to show our link school- Nianjema Primary School in Tanzania and the plan is to help the Tanzanian children make an animation about one of their traditional stories, which we will add to our website. Continue reading

Class 4 Fundraiser

Another fantastic afternoon was had by all our pupils at the Class 4 Fundraiser on Friday 19th July, despite the weather and holding the event indoors.

Nothing could dampen the wonderful atmosphere! The children were raising money in aid of cancer research UK. We believe at FPS that we have a responsibility to help other people and we support a range of charities over the year.

What is so impressive with this afternoon is that the children organise the entire event themselves – planning and running the stalls, providing the equipment and the prizes and setting up and packing away. A fantastic achievement!

An incredible £326.50 was raised, amazing! We are so very proud of our Class 4 children.
