Priory Class

Welcome to Priory Class.

What a start to the term we have had, visiting Genting Arena for Young Voices 2018. All of Priory class worked through last term to learn all the songs and thank you for assisting them with this. I hope you’ve enjoyed hearing them!

This is a shorter term with a slightly lower key topic. We had a very successful expedition event last term and photos are available to view in the Gallery.

This term we are studying Rivers and Coasts. This is a geography based project which studies the key aspects of physical geography surrounding rivers, mountains and the water cycle.

We will be using maps, atlases and globes to locate rivers and countries and hopefully visit a small river site to carry out some investigations on the river. We will also be studying the water cycle.

Our project will include an investigation into bridge structures as part of our DT curriculum.

Class learning will be focus on World Rivers whereas homework from Mrs Sinclair will focus on British Rivers. The homework will be in the form of a project. Children will be asked to complete research each week on their chosen river and after February half term, we will share our projects as a class.

English lessons will be based around the Harry Potter book, The Philosopher’s Stone. If you have a copy of the book at home, please send into school with your child so that they can read along.

PE days this term are Wednesday and Thursday. Children must have PE kit in school for these sessions. We are very lucky to have someone from Badminton England to be coaching us on Thursday afternoons for the next five weeks.

This term the year six children will be taking part in the annual MAWS concert in March. We will be learning the songs as a class and the songs have been taken from films the children already know.
