Priory Infant School

Priory Infant pupils become historians for the day

Children from Priory Infant School have been historians for the day.

Delving into newspaper articles, they learned how their wonderful Ramsgate library had been badly damaged by fire. The children visited the library and thoroughly examined the architecture of the building. The facade has been carefully restored but the eagle-eyed historians noticed the use of modern materials at the rear of the building.

With creativity always at the heart of learning, the children made drawings of the library facade, carefully observing the local references in the features of the building. Their art is currently on display in the library windows for all to see.

Year 1 teacher, Mrs Grout said: “Priory Infant School has a perfect location in the heart of Ramsgate town, making local trips easily accessible. Our children love learning about their local community and Ramsgate never fails to provide with its rich history and fabulous architecture.”
