On Monday 24th September, Ruth Smith from Durham County Council visited FMPS to discuss the importance of being eco-friendly. She shared great ideas with the children on how we can all recycle effectively, in and out of school, reducing the waste in our county.

On Wednesday 12th December pupils from FMPS sang carols outside Sainsburys Arnison Centre.

On Thursday 7th Feb 2019, Year 5 took part in a debating activity in the hall with Gillian Bell from Parliament. After an informative assembly about the different elements of government, Year 5 had the opportunity to learn further about conventions of debating and how these debates play out in the House of Commons. A speaker of the house was selected and the class were split into two groups to represent the government and the opposition. Year 5 debated a range of topics such as homework and healthy eating, all carried out in a style that reflects that of the House of Commons! All the pupils thoroughly enjoyed this experience and gained a lot from this unique opportunity.

The day was a huge success and we raised a total of £477.06 for this very worthy charity.
