Rainbows

Good morning Cannon Park!

I hope you’re all safe and well. Today is the first day of a very different routine for many of you but I know you will all continue to demonstrate our school values wherever you are this morning.

Each day, I will posting an activity on the website – an activity that many of you will be able to join in with. I will also add useful websites to further your learning. If you join in with the activity, please feel free to send in a photo to our new website email address website@cannonpark.coventry.sch.uk  and I’ll add some to the website.

For the first activity, I thought we’d start with one about hope and positivity. With social distancing and lots of places including many school closing, children are connecting with each other by painting colourful rainbows and putting them in their windows for others to see. Today, why not create your own rainbow and stick it in your window. You might want to use felt tips or paint or even do a collage.

We may not all be in the building but we are still all one school.

World Book Day

Everyone in school enjoyed celebrating books yesterday for World Book Day. The children, who were dressed in their PJs with their favourite bedtime story, enjoyed doing a variety of bookish activities. Mrs MacDonald rang the bell several times throughout the day, which meant the children had to ‘drop everything and read’.

Thank you to the families who sent in cakes as part of our Great Bookish Bake Off. The money raised in the cake sale at the end of the day will go right back into buying books for our library, which the children will enjoy.

Finally, a big thank you to all the parents and carers and grandparents who came in to join us for the Big Read at the end of the day. It was lovely to see so many children enjoying stories!

Investigating…

This afternoon, Year 1 had a very interesting science lesson. We talked about what animals eat and how we can group them into herbivores, carnivores and omnivores. We talked about how if we looked at the poo of different animals, we might be to see what they eat. That is exactly what some archaeologists do to help us understand what people ate in the past. We investigated ‘pretend poo’, which helped us to decide if it had been left by a herbivore, carnivore or omnivore.

Christmas Parties

Yesterday, the children enjoyed their class Christmas parties. They played games in the hall, decorated their tables and enjoyed their party food. Father Christmas even found time to pop in and give each child a book for Christmas.

Year 1 to the rescue!

This morning, the children came into the classroom to find they’d had a visit from ‘The Evil Pea’. He had caught all of Supertato’s vegetable friends and tied them up! Supertato was away on holiday so Year 1 were keen to help. They created their own Supertato characters, gave theme superpowers and helped to free the vegetables. They wrote some amazing sentences about their characters!

What a mess!

Year 1 had a shock when they came into their classroom yesterday! Someone had dumped all of their rubbish everywhere! As a team, the children quickly decided that something needed to be done. They sorted the rubbish and re-used as much as they could to create something new. The children worked very hard and were proud that they had done something to help their planet.

Children in Need

The children had a great time raising money for Children in Need on Friday. Everyone took part in the Joe Wicks workout in the morning – the staff found it more of a challenge than the children! In the afternoon, our ‘bring-and-buy’ sale was a bit hit. Thank you all for supporting Children in Need.
