We would like to welcome you and the children to Priory Junior School. We hope the children enjoy the learning and experiences that they will take part in over this year.


We begin our learning journey with our Stone Age topic. In English, pupils will study the Stone Age Boy text and write their own adventure texts. We have an exciting trip planned to Flag Fen to experience Stone Age life for ourselves! In Maths, we will look at number value and ways that we can add and subtract mentally and using a written method. Following half term, we move to the Mediterranean looking at the text ‘Where the Forest Meets the Sea’. We learn what it is like to live in the Mediterranean and write some fantastic setting descriptions.


In Spring, the children will learn about the Ancient Greeks and how they have influenced our modern society. The children will learn mythical stories and legends with fantastical creatures. We will compare the modern Olympics with the Ancient Games, concluding with a Greek Day and  an Olympics of our own.


Finally, the children will focus on local history. They will have the opportunity to learn about what St Neots was like in the past and how the Rowley family have influenced the town around them. Following this, the children will have the chance to explore the deepest depths of the earth and create volcanic eruptions in the topic Escape From Pompeii. Some people say that there may be a volcano under our feet that needs investigating!
