Hunting for Stonehenge

Class 7 have spent today on a history treasure hunt looking for clues about Stonehenge. All around the classroom were little snippets of "Stonehenge Facts" that they needed to locate to help them answer some questions on an information sheet.

Once all the information had been found, they then produced their own Stonehenge report.

Upper School space talk

Today Upper school had a fantastic visit from Doctor Sheridan, a scientist from university. We learnt about meteors and took part in experiments that show their effects on Earth. We were also extremely lucky to look at and touch real meteors, as well as pieces of the moon and Mars- Wow! A once in a lifetime experience!

Thank you Doctor Sheridan, we really enjoyed your visit.

'Onesie’ day to help raise money for Diabetes UK.

Ellie, age 7 and a pupil at the school has a family member with Type 1 Diabetes and along with her mum wanted to do something to raise money and awareness. As well as the ‘onesie’ day which raised £160, Ellie also did a sponsored 7 mile walk in the Peak District which raised £360!

Ellie said, “I was really happy to see everyone at school in ‘onesies’- I was really happy!” It was widely agreed at Porchester Junior School that Head Teacher Graham Cullen, looked the silliest in his Batman ‘onesie’. He said, “It was great to see the school taking part in the fundraising, and for such a good cause. It has helped the staff to talk about Diabetes in a meaningful way to pupils who now have a greater understanding. We are grateful to everyone that played a part to raise the money to help Ellie in her quest.” World Diabetes Day is held on November 14th each year and says its aims are ‘education and prevention’ of the condition.

Wow, such creativity computing

The talented children with the help of the talented Mr Widdowson have created a computer programme for our new rainforest reading area. I am astounded at their skills and knowledge it is outstanding. They have managed to use their knowledge to write a programme to create rainforest noises, using sensors and trigger plates. Wow I am blown away by the talent.
