election millie ballott

On Thursday 5th May, Year 6 held an election at The Priory inspired by the London Elections.

They were first explained what the parties meant and offered. Then, they got into groups and prepared a speech for the school. It wasn’t just an amazing speech they had to prepare, they also had to make stickers with their party stickers to encourage  the children to vote. The also had to make big eye catching posters. Every child in Year 6 worked extremely hard in order to give their party the best chance of winning. But their could only be one winner… The Liberal party… L.E.P! Although some were upset because they didn’t win, they were still very proud of that party.


The L.E.P Party ran the school on Thursday 9th June. Their rules for the day included playing beat the goalie at lunch, circle time with juice and biscuits and a skipping competition.

Year 6 trip to the London Eye // News



On the 29th of January 2016, year 6 were lucky enough to visit the London Eye in Waterloo as part of their science and topic work.

“The experience was amazing , I learnt so much from the trip.” Molly 

“I had a great time with my classmates, enjoying the great views from the London Eye’s window, with all the great landmarks of Central London below us.” Sophie

Not only did they visit The London Eye but they also went to see the 4D Experience near by the famous wheel which was fascinating but at the same time fun and hilarious!

Top 10 Tips // Completing your homework

top ten

If you are having trouble completing your homework, then this post is for you! Here are my Top 10 Tips for completing homework:

  1. When you get your homework look through it and see what is asking you to do.
  2. Make sure you have the right stationary, eg: If you have Maths homework you may need to have a ruler or a protractor.
  3. You will need to be in a quiet room so you can concentrate and there will be no distractions.
  4. If you are not sure about anything, go and ask your teacher.
  5. Search through different websites to find the right information – don’t just rely on one.
  6. Always complete your homework the night you get it, (if you can) otherwise all of it could pile up and you will have lots to do in one night.
  7. Schedule your time – you may want to do it after school at a homework club or when you get home but make sure you have a specific time to do your homework.
  8. Make sure you are not tired otherwise you will not have the full concentration needed to complete your homework.
  9. Take your time with it – don’t rush or it could look messy and untidy.
  10. Always have a planner or a notebook to hand so you can write your hand in dates for your homework and ideas, eg: for a story.
