Our Visit From the West End Magpie
On Friday, as you may have seen, we had a very special visit from our West End Magpie. This is the ambulance Canning Street Primary has adopted and it belongs to local charity, Daft as a Brush. This charity does amazing work, transporting people in the community to their Cancer treatment.
Our head Dinner Lady, Mrs Ann Garrett, played a key part in raising the £25,000 needed to purchase the ambulance. We were all so proud to be part of such a wonderful effort. Many thanks to Graeme and all of Daft as a Brush for coming down to see us.

What a busy term we are having already! We love Summer at Canning Street as we get to make the most of our lovely outdoor areas and field. So, what has been going on lately?
Breakfast Buzz: Your children may have told you that we are now able to offer every single child in school a FREE breakfast snack when they arrive. This could be either a freshly made piece of toast or a piece of fruit. We are so pleased that so many children are taking up this offer, as a healthy breakfast sets everyone up for the best possible start to the day.
Fantastic Fridays: Last Friday morning was fantastic fun, seeing children place their raffle tickets into the raffle box. We were very pleased that our first winner was SAMANTHA in year 4. Even better still, our attendance on Friday was the best it has been all year. However, it was still lower than every other day in the week, so we still have a way to go. Remember to bring your tickets in tomorrow....
School Reports: Your child's end of year report will be sent to you before the end of term. Attached will be a letter informing you who their teacher for next year will be. You will also have an opportunity to discuss the report with the teacher, if you would like.
Masks on the yard: We are aware that face coverings can feel uncomfortable in the hot weather. However, with the Prime Minister's most recent announcement, postponing the lifting of Social Distancing restrictions, we need to continue wearing masks in the yard. Thank you for your support in this.
