Dear Parents and Carers

And just like that, we are at the end of the first half term!

A lot has happened since the first day of the school year: 

  • Our pupils have settled well into their new classes including our new Reception class
  • All parents have had the opportunity to visit the school and talk to the teachers about how the class works and how well their child is settling in
  • New student leaders have been selected and elected for house captains, sports captains, School Council, Play Leaders and Eco Council
  • We have made the most of the use of the school field with the fine Autumn weather
  • Many children have already been given awards for attitude, behaviour and achievements
  • Children have represented the school at external sporting events, with more to come

Christmas cards

Thank you if you have already returned your child’s Christmas card order. 

All of the Christmas card designs have now been sent home. If you would like to order Christmas cards with your child’s design on the front, please return the order form with the details completed to the school office by no later than Monday 30th October. Payment for the cards also must be made by this date to the payment details (Priory PTA) stated on the bottom of the order form. 

Rotary Shoebox Appeal 

Thank you to the families who donated items for our Rotary Shoebox Appeal. The boxes have been collected by the Rotary charity now for distribution to disadvantaged and displaced children. We sent 11 boxes in total. 

Winter Uniform

Please note that after half term all children are requested to wear winter school uniform. If any parents are struggling to pay for school uniform, please contact us at office@priory.hants.sch.uk to help source second-hand uniform, or free school uniform from our huge pile of unclaimed lost property!

Coram Life Education

Straight after half term the children in each class will take part in workshops led by the Coram Life Education group. Parents have been emailed details about these workshops which will focus on Relationships and Health understanding.  

News from the Sports Desk…
We are delighted to share our first team photo of this year’s Tag Rugby team ahead of their inaugural match the first week back after half term. Team – you look great and will represent your school with pride and sportsmanship! Exciting times ahead for this group (and their teammates who were absent from school on photo day) and we’ll keep you posted on their progress.
In other news, Netball ‘Come & try’ on Tuesdays has had a brilliant turnout and Years 5&6 final team tryouts will be Tuesday 31st October 2.15pm. Good luck everyone.
Have a great half term break and remember to keep active and have lots of fun. Post your sporting achievements and energetic activities on SeeSaw for your teachers, they will love seeing them.

Reception Year News

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

Thank you very much for your junk modelling contributions this week to make our minibeast creatures. The children had a wonderful time making their creatures and have had great fun choosing and decorating their creatures.

The children have also been learning some interesting facts about minibeasts and talking about their favourite minibeast. The children have also been learning the song ‘The ants go marching two by two’ and adding in some actions too.

In Maths the children have been learning about 2D shapes. They have learnt the names and properties of the different shapes. The children have also been comparing a square and a rectangle and have learnt that a square has 4 equal sides (all the sides are the same length) and a rectangle has 2 short sides and 2 long sides.

We cannot believe we have completed the first half term in Year R already. It has gone so quickly and we do hope that you all have a rest and an enjoyable time over the half term holiday.

After half term:

The children will be discussing and writing about what they have done in their half term holidays. It would be lovely if you could send in a photo or post some photos on Tapestry of something that your child does during the half term, which will support their discussion in school.

In Maths the children will be focusing on numbers 4 and 5 looking at ways to find, subitise and represent the numbers 4 and 5.

The children will also be learning about firework night. They will discuss how to be safe and making some firework crafts too.

Have a lovely half term.

The Year R team
