This term we have looking at Brazil.

We have looked at carnivals and festivals, the children have designed their own carnivals masks today so we couldn't resist having a little carnival in the classroom. Well done class four.

Jonny Zucker

We have been extremely lucky to have the author Jonny Zucker in school on Wednesday. Some of the children in Year 3/4 have been reading his amazing books, in the reading groups, on SerialMash. Jonny is an inspirational author and has written over 100 children's books.

He spoke to the children about his books and what encouraged him to be an author. All of the children loved listening to him and I know that they will want to read many more of his books now. It was an absolute pleasure to meet him and a morning that we will remember for a long time.

Thank you Jonny for coming into Porchester and inspiring us to read and write more stories.

Class four perform their capoeira dance

:: What is Capoeira? ::

Capoeira is a Brazilian art form which combines fight, dance, rhythm and movement. Capoeira is a dialog between players - a conversation through movement which can take on many shades of meaning. The details of capoeira's origins and early history are still a matter of debate among historians, but it is clear that african slaves played a crucial role in the development of the artform. Some historians claim that slaves used capoeira's dance-like appearance as a way to hide their training of combat and self defense.


Capoeira dancing has linked to our geography topic on Brazil, the children created the story of the slaves flight to freedom.

Well done class four, you are superbly talented.
