Community Cookery Club

Every Thursday afternoon, we run a cookery club for adults. Every week we are joined by a few parents and occasionally have visits from the community worker. Lately they have been cooking macaroni, oat biscuits, samosas and the last yummy items they made were PIZZAS.  Mrs Youngman provides the ingredients needed. The team includes Mrs Youngman, Mrs Pami, Miss Hasna, Miss Polly and Miss Begum. We run this club for parents/carers to help bring the local community together.   Come and join in the fun next term!           By Raadia

Public Speaking Workshops

On Monday 18th March Year 5 took part in a public speaking competition workshop (to prepare for a competition next term).  Hi, my name is Alina and I am a questioner, so I will tell you what I have to do.  When the other team calls you, then you, the questioner, get up and you ask your questions and then the other team answers your questions.  We were debating about whether we should use robots to do our work or whether we should do it on ourselves.  My team was debating we should do things without robots. The other team was  debating for robots to do everything for them.       By Alina

There is a questioner.  There is a speaker.  And there is a chair person.  That is your team.  You have to work together but you also have your own individual jobs to do.  So what happened was, we had a debate on robots and care for kids.  The kids care won… of course, because children are dying and they have bad conditions going around all over the world. The robots just clean for you and do all of the work whereas your children are more important and if your children are dying,  you can’t just sit there and watch your child in pain.    By Molly

Year 6 Filmstars!

On Tuesday 12th March, two amazing film makers from a company called School Readers came in and filmed our class participating in reading, play, literacy and numeracy. Later on in the day, they took three lucky children to be interviewed in the library and the three children were asked why they like reading so much and why they want to encourage other schools to have a reading assistant. It was a really, really fun morning because everyone in year 6 LOVES reading.    By Kayleigh

German Visitors

On 26th and 27th of February 2019, German adults visited us from Bamberg. The first day they we had visitors, 2 year 6 people went to the office to collect the 2 German adults. When they came to Year 6, the whole class was practicing their German and reminding themselves about the verbs, pronouns, indefinite and definite articles. The second day, another two Year 6 pupils went to collect different German adults (because apparently the recent pupils who had collected the first German visitors didn’t talk a lot)! The new Year 6 pupils gave the German adults a tour of our school. They came inside the year 6 classroom and introduced themselves then they helped us with our German sentences. It was great to meet some more people who actually live in Germany.  They understood what we said. By Rayhan A

Year 2 Safety Centre Trip

On Wednesday 27th February, year 2 went to the Safety Centre in Milton Keynes. They went by coach. When they got there they had to do a hard quiz. Then they watched a short film about road safety. After the film they were split into teams with a teacher. Their first activity was electricity safety and they were told not to touch the electricity wire when you have wet hands. After that activity they did water safety, they learned that if someone is in the water you should not help them because you might drown, instead you should call 999. Then they did fire safety and they learned that when someone is stuck in their bedroom you should dial 999. Finally, they did road safety and they learned something very important; look left and right before you cross the road. After a long day at the Safety Centre they went back on a coach, back to lovely Priory Primary school.

KS1 Choir

We now have a KS1 choir, as well as the KS2 choir which is well established now.  The KS1 choir is on Thursdays after School from 3:20 until 4:30. They sing London’s Burning and other songs. The music uses lots of ‘Italiano’. Mrs Webber is the choir teacher and she is a very good singer. It is very enjoyable and also fun.  The pupils who go really love it.

Forest School

In Forest School you get to make hot chocolate, fire, dens, tools, birds food, pencils and you get to play games. Mr Walsh and Mrs Albone take charge of the forest school club. This term year 4 are doing forest school then the next term year 5 and then year 6. (Then everyone has had a turn this year) They have to wear old clothes as it can get muddy. It is very enjoyable and all the children love it.
