Important Information about the Priory App

Dear parents and carers, the Priory Primary App is no longer running so please use the Priory website to keep up to date regularly with all our news and information. You can also see loads of photos about things we do at school on there, so it’s well worth visiting!  Thank you.      By Anisa

KS2 Music Curriculum

In Priory Primary ks2 learn a lot about music, but the groups have now changed for this term, to give us an opportunity to learn various areas of music. Year 4 are learning how to play the recorder. Year 5 are learning about rhythm and year 6 are learning about composers. If your child brings a recorder home, please encourage and allow them to practice, as this is part of the national curriculum.  Thank you.

Keep Safe!

We learn a lot in school about different ways to stay safe.  Remember – It’s very important to stay safe from rivers, roads, train tracks and strangers.

Before crossing a road remember STOP, LOOK, LISTEN and THINK!

Make sure not to speak to people you don’t know or trust. You could end up doing the wrong thing or doing something you don’t want to do.

Some people are getting injured by crossing train tracks. Don’t forget to cross a train track when it is a green light not a red light. Train tracks are now being electrified so if you cross it you will get an electric shock and you can get hurt or even die.

Remember not to go in a river especially if you can’t swim. It can lead you to great danger and possible drowning.       By Halima

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
