Staff goodbyes

It wasn't only the Yr6 pupils we said farewell to at the end of the school day today, we also bid a sad goodbye to three members of staff.

We said goodbye to Mrs, Gledhill who has been teaching class3 with Mrs. Wright this year, and has been working on developing the maths we teach in school.

We said goodbye to Miss.Buchanan who has been working with children all across the school for the past year, as well as developing the pupil parliament, Film Club and the Road Safety group.

We said goodbye to Mrs. Kerr who has been teaching class7 this year, and has developed the French and Art we teach in school as well as organising the schools participation in the 'Sing Up' spectacular.

Thank you to all three members of staff for the hard work and commitment shown this year. We hope you enjoy your new schools.

Une excellente journée du français au Porchester

We held French day on the 20th July. The children were able to sample traditional French activities throughout the day.

The activities included a game of Pétanque, Cubist art inspired by Fernand Leger, learning and singing the French song 'Savez vous planter les choux', asking for sandwich ingredients in French, creating their version of the Eiffel Tower and learning traditional French dances.

Here are a few videos and photos from the day.

Thank you to our PTA for helping towards funding this fabulous day.

Another App Completed

Chloe and Brianna in Cl5 have been busy working on the creation of their own app. They have been so keen to get it finished that they've stayed in at lunchtimes to complete their task.

Today they were pleased to tell me that they've completed it. So here it is. Their Twilight characters database app. Click on the link, or scan the QR code;

Ancient Egyptian Day

Today, lower school had an Egyptian day. We had a fantastic day learning more about the Ancient Egyptians. We were lucky enough to have Partake come in to do some drama with us, based on the mummification ritual. They also demonstrated how people would have dressed in Ancient Egyptians times and the reasoning behind each thing. Within our classes we also made Egyptian collars and cartouche necklaces.

It has been a very busy and exciting day. Take a look at our video to see some of the moments from the day.
