This afternoon, Year 5 worked with Aspens staff to create fruit smoothies using their pedal power! Healthy School Week has started with a bang!
A group of Year 6 children spent the day at the University of Warwick taking part in the UKMT Primary Maths Challenge. Many scores across Coventry and Warwickshire competed in teams of four completing various challenges, which tested their teamwork and communication skills as well as their mathematical knowledge. The children from Cannon Park did exceptionally well, sharing ideas, demonstrating their impressive mathematical abilities and supporting each other. Although they didn’t win the competition, they did win the Teamwork Award. Well done to everyone involved!
After working incredibly hard with their SATs last week, Year 6 have had the chance to get creative with a design and technology project this week. Equipped with wood and saws, they have started to (safely!) build their own cars, with the help of engineers from Schneider Technology. The students have relished the opportunity to try something new and are looking forward to the upcoming Primary Engineer celebration event, where the cars will be judged by a panel. Good luck to all!
This morning, Year 6 have been learning about the power of positive thinking. We discussed motivational posters and created some of our own. Hopefully they’ll help us in the future as we face new challenges.
