November 16, 2017: A Quick Quiz
Here's a quick science challenge for Lower School; If you put your hand up in front of your mouth, about 10cm way from your face, and then whisper the word "push", what can you feel and why? Click on 'comment' below and leave a message explaining what is happening.



November 10, 2017: Class 3 Scientists
What an amazing effort Class 3 have made for World Science Day! We definitely have some future scientists in the making...



October 23, 2017: The Stone Age Rocks!
What a fantastic half term we've had exploring the Stone Age! Class 3 have been very busy digging for evidence, researching animals of the Stone Age, designing our very own cave paintings, producing rock databases, building Stonehenge out of biscuits, as well as creating sunset silhouette art work. With a little help from Ug, Om and The Stone Age Boy, we've also written some fabulous setting descriptions, instructions on how to catch a prehistoric beast and diary entries sharing how much we hate wearing stone trousers! We finished our topic by reflecting on everything we've learnt and working collaboratively to produce a whole class Stone Age fact file.



July 20, 2016: Movie Time
Over the past term the children in class 7 and class 3 have been planning special film projects in their computing lessons. Every pupil in each class has been involved in one way or another, as we initially began with a discussion about what type of film should be made. The children watched some examples that children had created in previous years - the brilliant silent movie films, some examples of greenscreen films, and also how SpecialFX could be used within a film. As a class they each came up with the idea for science fiction films (at this point Mr. W quietly shook his head thinking this would be too difficult to do). In class 7 they chose Lewis to storyboard their ideas and put it together to tell a story, and then began to write a script involving a range of characters. A director was chosen (Mollie) who then had the role of listening to budding actors audition before selecting a group of children to take on the roles in the movie. Other children were given other roles as part of the project; there was a prop master who needed to make sure we had the items mentioned in the script. there was a cameraperson whose job was to record all the scenes for the movie. there were editors who would have to put all the scene clips together, cut bits out, add extra sound effects and make the film look awesome and of course there were 'extras' who would be needed within some of the scenes of the movie. Well, it's taken a little longer than we anticipated - mainly due to other events that have taken our computing time away - but I'm pleased to say they've completed their masterpieces.



April 27, 2016: Creating fraction word problems in maths
This morning my maths group created some amazing fraction word problems on whiteboards. We took some pictures to remember their questions - can you work out the answers to any of these problems? (Some of these are a one step problem, some are two step) George asked: "Josh has 25kg of snow in his garden. He uses 1/5 to make a snowman. How much snow has he used?" Katie asked: "Mrs Parr has 16 cakes. She gives 1/2 to Katie. How many does she have left?". How many rings does she get?" Molly asked: "Leon has 50 rings and he gives 1/5 to Molly. How How many does she get?" Owen asked: "Zak had 40 cookies. He had eaten 1/4 of them. How many did he eat?" EvieT asked: "Freya has 28 lollies. She sells 1/4. How many does she have left?"" Leon asked: "Rosy has 25 puppies. She feeds 1/5 of them. How many were fed?" Zachary asked: "Zachary has 15 video games. he throws out 1/3 of them. How many does he have left?" Ellie asked: "Sammi has 20 hats. He sells 1/5 of them. How many does he sell?" Luke asked: "Brendon has 15 sweets. he gives 1/3 to Cole. How many does he have left?" ...and finally, Fred asked a tricky question: "Tommie has 500 marbles. Tommi sells 1/5. How many marbles does he have left?"



March 2, 2016: Can liquids damage our teeth? (The results)
We left the experiment we started last week for 7 days and today we looked at what had happened to each of the eggs. We were really surprised by what had happened to some of the eggs, and so spent a lot of time talking about what we thought had happened to each egg.



July 22, 2015: A time to say Goodbye



July 21, 2015: 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. Class 3 from Porchester Class 7 on Vimeo.
