Weekly Home Learning:

Dear Priory,

I will be taking time off from now to prepare (and possibly relax) before the arrival of our baby boy. It has been a pleasure teaching both Year 5 and Year 6 for their third school year at St Mary's with me as their teacher, and I look forward to hearing about all of your progress over the next academic year. I wish all the Year 6s good luck for Year 7, but I know all of you will thrive and make your way out into the world. I also know the Year 5s will 'smash it' in Year 6 - hopefully all under different circumstances. You have all blown me away these last few months; not one of you crumbled or gave up; you should all be very proud of yourselves. Thank you for making my first year in Year 5 and Year 6 a blast!!!

Mrs Wheeler will be taking over any morning briefing sessions (where she can) and will be replying to any emails and any other admin for Priory Class. 

All my love. Mrs Scott. :) 

All primary schools in our Trust are now providing the same core home learning offer for our children. This includes some teaching videos made by leaders in the Trust which we hope your child will find supportive and engaging. Our expectation is that your child will try to complete as much of this daily learning as they can. However, we completely understand that, at times, this may not be possible.
Your child's class teacher will still be writing a short weekly letter to the class and will be personalising the Trust offer where necessary. We really hope your child enjoys these activities and we will be sending out a survey in the third week of June to gather your feedback.

Here are our Year 6 children sharing some positive images of their time spent learning at home, working with clay in the Conservation Area.
