WORK STARTS ON THE NEW PLAYGROUND! SEPT 2021
A huge thank you to all our school and wider community who have risen to the challenge of raising a significant sum of money through various fundraising activities last year and which has enabled us to begin works on our exciting new playground.
We are very grateful to the following for their generous support of our playground project, without which this work would not have been possible:
- Wiltshire Council via the Pewsey Area Board
- WH Smith Charitable Trust
- Walter Guinness Charitable Trust
- Devizes Lions Club
- All the pupils, parents, carers, family and friends of All Cannings School and PTFA who supported our various fundraising activities
THE CHILDREN'S CHALLENGE - FEBRUARY HALF-TERM 2021
A huge well done to all those who took part in The Children’s Challenge over the half-term holiday. 79 schools in total took part, travelling a phenomenal total distance of 71,596km, which equates to 1.79 times around the circumference of the earth!
All Cannings came a very respectable 15th overall with a total distance of 1,483km. Our average distance per pupil of 9.39km placed us in the top 10, as did our total pupil participation of 14.3%. The total distance of 441km covered by staff also placed us 11th on the staff leader board, so when you consider the size of our school compared to others in the competition and the fact that we only signed up to the event two days before it was due to start, everyone should be very proud of these results. What a fantastic achievement! Well done everyone!
SNOW DAY - JAN 2021
We all enjoyed a welcome break from home-schooling and working when we woke up one Sunday morning in January to a blanket of white snow. It was so lovely to see all the photos sent in to school showing us what you have been getting up to and particularly good to see all the smiling faces. It reminds us that we can find joy in simple pleasures at this difficult time.
NATIVITY - A MIRACLE IN TOWN
The children in EYFS and KS1 have been practising hard for the annual nativity performance. This year was a little different, as it was held outside, so that they could still perform in front of socially distanced parents and carers. The outdoor area, complete with twinkling fairy lights and bales of hay, supplied by one of the parents, only added to the atmosphere and I think everyone was in agreement that both parents and children had a wonderful time! Well done to all the children and all the staff who were involved in the organisation.
WELCOME BACK TO ALL OUR PUPILS!
We have missed those of you who have not been with us since March and so excited that we are all back together once again.
What a lovely atmosphere there has been around school over the past few days with everyone catching up with their friends and settling in to their new classes. We have an exciting year ahead of us!
Despite the current restrictions, All Cannings still managed to arrange a different kind of Sports Day this year, which was well supported by children and families.
To participate in our 'virtual Sports Day', families were asked to send in photos and videos of the children being sporty and active at home. Points were awarded for everyone who sent photos in, with bonus points given to those who went the extra mile in terms of originality.
See the Galleries for photos.
We are looking forward to welcoming more key worker children on Monday 15th June and also those from Reception, Y1 and Y6. Please see below some information to prepare your child coming back to school.
Welcome back Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 to school. We are excited to be back together again!
In preparation for welcoming the Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 children back to school, Mr Borman found two willing volunteers to help make a video to give the children a taste of what school will be like on their return.
The staff have been missing all the children around school and created a little something to, hopefully, bring one or two smiles to faces at home.
All Cannings Primary School, along with Lavington School, Chirton, Bishops Cannings, Woodborough, Nursteed and Rushall Primary Schools, formed the Equa Multi Academy Trust on 1st April 2019.
