A Fabulous Book Week

The boys enjoyed a fun-packed Book Week last week with an array of activities arranged throughout the school.

Author Visits

Jack Trelawny proved to be very popular with Years 2-8 making them laugh throughout his visit.  He shared his fantastic ideas and how he develops stories from the things he sees.  Some boys were fortunate enough to win prizes and get books personally signed.


Mrs Spence organised a colouring competition after reading her Nobby Travels Books with Reception and Year 1.  The boys were very lucky, being able to take copies of the books home.


Illustrator Visit

Digital Illustrator, Jon Stuart, demonstrated his skills to the Pre-Prep and Prep boys. They explored how animations can be formed from simple drawings.  Jon also shared his Project X books with each class.


Caterpillars Pre-School Visit

The Nursery were delighted to be welcomed by children from Caterpillars Pre-School on Friday.  They joined together for free play, story reading and the Drama Workshops.

Buddy Reading

For the first time at Priory, the whole school were involved in buddy reading - where the Prep boys read with Nursery and Pre-Prep!  With everyone in costume, it was greatly enjoyed by all.

Reading Relay
Staff and Year 8 rotated around and ready brilliantly to boys in Nursery to Year 6.

Where's Wally Hunt
The boys enjoyed running around the playground, in the rain, searching for all the places Wally was hiding.

Children's Trust Visit
Year 4 & 5 visited the Children's Trust.  They were given a tour of the facilities, met the children, took part in multi-sensory story reading, and made their own cakes.  This was a very rewarding trip for our boys, who all behaved impeccably. 


Drama Workshops
Perform for Schools enthusiastically delivered Drama Workshops for every class in the school.  All sessions, which were based on particular books, were thoroughly enjoyed by the boys.
