End of term Easter celebrations

The end of term was celebrated at St Guthlac’s church with the whole school walking there to take part in a special celebration  assembly. Our Starfish class children proudly wore their wonderfully decorated Easter bonnets which were then paraded once inside the church and judged by Christine who had the difficult decision of choosing a winner.

Each child represented the school fantastically by performing songs and poems with huge smiles on their faces as their classes took to the stage. Many parents attended the special service and it was lovely to see the church looking so full.

Many certificates were given out for the hard work that has been seen over the term and we also had Bikewise awards to present to the children that took part in Bikewise earlier this term.

The children were a credit to the school and the Easter service was a fitting end to another successful term at Fishtoft Academy.



Shark class have been busy reading Moondial by Helen Cresswell and were lucky enough to visit Belton House where the story is set. We followed in the footsteps of the key characters and re-enacted parts of the story using costumes and locations from the story. It made the book seem more real to us, inspiring us to write our own Moondial story.

I wonder where or when we will go when we touch the Moondial?


Queen’s Tea Party

On Monday 12th March the Starfish had a busy afternoon preparing for their afternoon tea. They worked in groups and all helped in making lemon cupcakes topped with icing and sprinkles and sandwiches including egg mayonnaise and ham with cream cheese.
On Tuesday 13th March the Starfish spent the afternoon enjoying the ‘Queen’s Tea Party.’ They wore smart clothing and ate the delicious cakes and sandwiches. To begin the party the Starfish stood for the National Anthem and welcomed in Queen Dring! They had a super time with the only request being that the ‘real’ Queen attends next time.

What is your favourite book?

We celebrated World Book day by dressing up as characters from our favourite books – it was very interesting to see Paddington Bear walking around school along with Mr Stink and the Mad Hatter!

Each class focused on a favourite children’s book for the day and lots of activities were planned to promote the love of reading for enjoyment.

We had a Mad Hatter’s tea party in the Dolphin classroom, while the Sharks created, made and wrote about their own Fantastic Beasts.

The Starfish had a special visitor in for the day – the Queen! They did lots of work based on her book called the ‘Queens Knickers’ which they found very amusing.

Parents were also invited into school for the afternoon to share books with their children and to see the various characters that visited Fishtoft Academy for the day.







Parent Reading

Fishtoft swimmers!

On Saturday 24th February a small group of children represented Fishtoft Academy at the annual Boston Swimming Gala. Although we were the smallest school in our category, with a very depleted squad that were able to attend on the day, we managed to achieve second place. The children that took part raced brilliantly and were an absolute credit to the school. We are very proud of their efforts and their determination to do their best really paid off!


Thank you

Across the trust 1433 pupils and students have been able to attend school today.

On behalf of parents, governors, directors and trust leaders a big thank you to all the staff who made this possible.
