Priory c of e primary academyDream. Build. Grow.
“I do hope you will enjoy our exciting web site and finding out more about the Academy. Please ring for an appointment to have a look around and capture the warm, welcoming and vibrant atmosphere. Though the photographs are superb they do not do full justice to the actual teaching and learning environment. I feel very privileged to be part of the Priory community and look forward to continuing to work with a dedicated staff team, supportive governors and parents but most importantly with our wonderful pupils.“
Everyone is welcome to join us on our learning journey, you might need your wellies!
Welcome to Year 1! Mrs Snowden is the lead teacher and is supported by Mrs Smith. In Year 1 we build upon and extend the experiences that children have had in the Foundation Stage. Learning through play continues to be an important part of the school day, with the children being gradually eased into more formal learning as the year goes on. Our topics in Year 1 are All About Me’, ‘Toys’ and ‘Change’. We go on exciting visits to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park, the Build-a-Bear Workshop, Southwell Minster, Mr Straw’s House and also on a ‘Worksop Walkabout’. Phonics is taught daily in Year 1 and plays an important role in learning to read and spell words.
Welcome to Year 2! Miss Lambert is the lead teach for Year 2 and is supported by our student teacher Miss May and our two one-to-one TA’s Miss Brown and Mrs Chambers. This year the children will embark on an exciting learning journey and explore a variety of inspiring topics. Our Autumn term topic allows the children to learn about the world around them through a variety of high quality books. They will become super geographers, learning about the continents and oceans of the world, and curious scientists, learning all about animals and humans. In the Spring term we will journey back to September 1666 as the children learn all about the Great Fire of London. We will discover the cause and effects of the fire and also find out how it has impacted on our lives today.
During the Summer term the children will deepen their geography knowledge and acquire new skills in locational studies as we find out all about the British seaside in Bridlington (of course we’ll njoy a donkey ride whilst we’re there so we can get the all important star stamp in our 100 things to do passports!)
Welcome to Year 3! This year the children get the opportunity to study a variety of new and exciting topics, with opportunities to ask questions and find the answer to these in their lessons. Our autumn term topics focus on keeping healthy, where the children become experts on healthy living, and a study of Ancient Egypt, where the children find out about the Egyptians and how they lived. In the spring term, we learn all about the weather and climate of this country and in Brazil. The children will also have a visit in this topic to Perlethorpe and will use speacilist equipment to help them understand the weather more. Finally, in our summer term, we go back in time to study the Stone Age. The children have the opportunity to understand how life now is different to how it was in the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. We also visit Creswell Crags to learn about how these eras have impacted on our local history.
Welcome to Year 4. We have some very exciting things to look forward to between now and Christmas. The children are becoming experts on our topic of World War Two and have been playing the part of evacuee children very well! We were horrified to discover some of our favourite foods were rationed during the war and not available! After half term we are really looking forward to our school trip to Eden Camp. In Maths we have been practicing our times tables to songs and dance. Ask your children about ‘Ooh La La!’
We have been writing poetry in English and experimenting with using similes and onomatopoeias.
What a lovely start Year 4!
Mrs Donovan and the Year 4 teaching team.
Welcome to Year 6!
Mrs Larkin is the lead teacher in Year 6 and is supported by Mrs Howard and Miss B Taylor. In Year 6, we enjoy growing our knowledge and applying it in lots of interesting and fun ways to make it stick. Year 6’s make the most of every opportunity available to them: representing our house teams as House Captains; leading training and supporting other children as skilled Negotiators, Take 5 Breathing Ambassadors and Anti-Bullying Ambassadors; and taking a lead role in sports both in school and in events across the county!
