The Black Country Museum

Today, Year 3/4 went to the Black Country Museum as part of our Victorian topic. We had a fun day looking around the houses and shops. We were also lucky enough to experience a school lesson in the St James' School and also have a tour of the mine. Both children and staff learnt a lot today and I am sure that it will be a visit that we will remember for a long time.

Programming through Logo

Well done to classes 1, 6 and 7 who have - over the past six weeks - been learning a computer language called 'Logo'. They have become so confident with it, that they even used it to make a garden...

Some parents may recognise what we have been doing, as this used to be taught in secondary schools a few years ago!

Junior Road Safety Team

Four Year 4 pupils at Porchester Junior School have taken a big responsibility onto their shoulders this year, being appointed Junior Road Safety Officers (JRSOs) as part of Nottinghamshire County Council’s Junior Road Safety scheme.

The pupils wrote a letter to Steve Smith, senior road safety officer, at Nottinghamshire county Council requesting help in keeping the roads around the school safer.

Steve responded by supplying some large signs which have since been affixed to the fencing around the school.

Miss Buchanan, a teacher at the school, who will be working with the children throughout the year, said they are excited about spreading the road safety word to their fellow pupils.

Splendid work guys!

Forensic science day

Catch the culprit

Today the children became forensic scientists...

A serious crime had been committed, someone had crept into Mr Cullen's office, drank his coffee and eaten his donuts. The culprit left behind some clues: finger prints; lip prints; bite marks; an apology letter and the pen that was used. A witness saw the culprit running away ....

The children spent the day solving the case by using scientific techniques.

Well done Children... You are amazing scientists :-)
