The children are on their way back from Dol-y-Moch now after a lovely two days.


Mr Young reports that our Year 6 children have had a fantastic time so far at Dol-y-Moch. Here are just a few photos of some of the children to give you a taste of what they’ve been up to. More photos will follow.


Sports Day 2021

Our ‘Bubble’ Sports Days were a great success this year! Thanks must go to Mr Sawbridge, Mr Cotton and Mrs Amphlett for organising the events, which the children really enjoyed.

Year 6 and the Olympic torch handover to Finham Park School.

Yesterday, the Year 6 children enjoyed holding an Olympic torch dating back to 1948. We were passed the torch by Stivichall Primary School and were entrusted with it until it was our turn to pass it on. They learnt about the history of the Olympics and the values associated with the event.

Today, a selection of children proudly carried the Olympic torch to Finham Park School. They demonstrated all the values expected of them and shared carrying duties along the way. Upon being greeted by Finham Park Staff, they were given the opportunity to do a short relay race along the running track where they were then greeted by welcoming Finham Park students at the other end. One of our children even gave a rousing speech to their headteacher upon arrival!

Mr Young and Mr Sawbridge couldn’t be prouder of how the children conducted themselves throughout this event and truly believe this once in a life time opportunity will leaving many lasting memories.


Well done everyone.



Olympic Torch Visit

As part of Coventry City of Culture and leading up to the Tokyo Olympics this summer, we were visited by a group of children and staff from Stivichall Primary School, who brought with them the Olympic torch, which was used in the London Olympics back in 1948. All the children went outside in their bubbles to greet the torch runners, waving flags and holding banners. The torch will spend some time in each class before a group of Year 6 children take the torch to Finham School on Friday afternoon.

Go Parks Active Challenge

The Go Parks Active Challenge is a competition. Each time you visit a local park, you’ll need to find and scan the QR code and register our school to show that you have been active. Every time you register you visit, our school will win 10 points. You can only register once each day. The schools with the highest participation will win money to be spent on sports equipment. At Cannon Park, we would spend any prize-winning money on new equipment for you to use at playtimes and lunchtimes.

School Games Values

Well done to Year 2 who have won a School Games Values award for their determination and teamwork. They really are a wonderful team of children and are always so supportive of each other. What a lovely way to finish the term. Well done Year 2, we are all so proud of you, and well done to Mrs Amphlett!

Virtual After School Club

The current lockdown means that children are missing out on lots of extra-curricular sports clubs. The Youth Sport Trust are hosting a virtual after school club on their You Tube channel every day at 5pm from Thursday 12th November until Friday 18th December.
