Priory 900 – Projects for Schools

The material listed here has been accumulated by a team of local historians to whom we are extremely grateful. These include John Walker, Richard Hudson, Brian Osborne, Barbara Mavis, John Wardle, Kate Sunley and Graham Cooper. They have used local sources wherever possible, with some assistance from other publications and the Internet. It has been collated by Penelope Weston. If you find any inaccuracies or errors, please let us know.

The projects vary in length and focus. Some can be adapted for younger children (KS1), but most are suitable in some form for KS2 and indeed KS3, and one or two are aimed at older students. Each one provides some information in words and where possible pictures. In some cases this is for the teacher to use and re-present as appropriate. There is no copyright on any of the material. There are also in most cases suggested activities, which can probably be adapted to suit your pupils, or you may have better ideas! ‘Some Famous Priory People’ has a number of mini-biographies which could perhaps feed into other activities.

As children work on and complete a project, we very much hope that you will make a record of this with photos, or scans of their work, or video clips. These can then be uploaded to the Schools section of the Priory 900 website, and – with suitable safeguards – made available for public viewing. In this way we will build a fantastic community resource.
