Primary Maths Team Challenge

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!

We’re Internet Legends!

Year 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 had a special assembly from Parent Zone, where the children travelled to Interland and learned how to be Google Internet Legends:

  • Be Internet Sharp:
    • think before sharing,
    • evaluate whether a piece of information is private or not,
    • and think who will be able to see what is shared.
  • Be Internet Alert:
    • if an offer is too good to be true, is it a phishing scam?
    • think what is real and what is fake,
    • and think critically about information found online, is is true and is it from a trusted website?
  • Be Internet Secure:
    • keep personal information safe by creating unique passwords, combining characters, numbers and symbols.
  • Be Internet Kind:
    • spread positivity online,
    • speak up against and report bullying,
    • identify inappropriate behaviour.
  • Be Internet Brave:
    • when witnessing something inappropriate online, speak to a trusted adult about any concerns.

Primary Engineers

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!

Mock Trial

This week, year 6 had a special visit from Coventry Magistrates Court. They learnt all about crime and punishment and what happens in the court. The children found it both fun and informative. A particular highlight was the trial re-enactment, in which the students took on roles within the court, including jury members, witnesses and legal advisors. It appears we have several budding actors in our midst!

Chris Priestly Visit

We were delighted to welcome the author, Chris Priestley, to work with Years 5 & 6. He talked about his life as an author and illustrator, and showed the children how to ‘characterise’ a drawing. We then had a go at drawing ourselves as pirates. Huge thanks to Kenilworth Books and Bloomsbury Children’s Books for bringing Chris to our school for the afternoon.
