Headteacher Update

Term 3 is flying by at a rate of knots! It’s already the half term break next week.

Have a good holiday

Stay updated

We recently sent a list of forthcoming dates for the rest of the term. We regularly update the website calendar so please check at https://theprioryprimaryschool.org.uk/school-calendar-grid-view/ to keep up to date.

Sports Day

The week straight after half term is sports week at The Priory.The children will have the chance to participate in sports activities across the week and Sports Day is on Thursday 8th June.

During morning drop off, Tor Gilchrist and Rachel Foster will be running some Wake Up, Shake Up activities to get the children in a sporting frame of mind (parents are also welcome to join in the fun!)

Tor Gilchrist is also kindly running circuit fitness for Years 3-6 on Tuesday and Wednesday morning.

Our wonderful coach, Zach, will be running mini competitions and tournaments throughout the week and will be kindly lending a hand on Sports Day.

On Sports Day the itinerary will be as follows: (all timings are estimates other than drop off and start time)

  • 8.30/8.40am – children dropped off at school as usual
  • 9.30 am – Sports day starts
    • Parents can wait on the school field until the start of the sports day activities, or come back just before 9.30am.
  • 9.30 – 11.30am – group track and field activities (in classes)
  • 11.30am – 12pm – Individual and house sprint races
  • 12-12.30pm – round up and awards
  • 12.30-1.30pm – family picnic*
  • 1.30 pm onwards – parents will be able to take children home or leave children at school. If taking children home they must be signed out with the class teacher.
  • 3.15pm – end of the school day. Usual pick up arrangements for any children still at school.

*Parents will be sent a form to complete for school lunches. Parents can either bring a picnic to share after the sports day, or opt to pay for a school packed lunch for their child(ren). A school packed lunch costing £2.60 will consist of a sandwich, a sausage roll, a piece of fruit and a homemade muffin. Children in Year R, 1 and 2, and any children in receipt of the pupil premium, are entitled to a free school packed lunch.

Parking- Please be careful when driving and parking around school site. There have been parental reports of potentially dangerous driving outside school. Please bare everyone’s safety in mind when arriving, parking ang leaving the area.

Leaving premises – Please leave the school site  promptly after pick-up. Having parents on the front playground prevents our clubs being able to go and use this space. Thank in advance for your understanding with this.

Half Term Activties

Reception Year News

What have we been learning about in Year R this week?

The children have enjoyed learning about different sea animals and describing what they look like. The children have explored non-fiction books and the internet to find out about the different animals and have also written down some descriptions of a chosen sea animal.

The children have listened to the story ‘The Rainbow Fish’ and have created their own Rainbow fish craft.

In Maths the children have been learning about even and odd numbers. They enjoyed listening to a story ‘One Odd Day’ where there were numerous odd things such as 5 legs on the dog, 3 sleeves on the shirt and a lady with 3 arms. The story helped the children think about odd numbers and they were inspired to make their own ‘odd’ pictures.

This week the children had an important workshop to learn about First Aid. They learnt how to call 999 and when they might need to call 999.

After Half Term:

Please could you ensure that all children’s clothing and items are labelled with their names. The children are increasingly taking their jumpers off and water bottles outside as the weather is getting warmer. If these items get left anywhere in the school then it is much easier to be handed back to the right child if their name is on it.

As the warmer weather is approaching please could you also ensure that you put sun cream on your child before the start of the school day and send your child in with a named sun hat.

We will be beginning the term with Sports week where the children will be partaking in numerous physical activities, including Sports Day.

Have a lovely half term break.
