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.

July 6, 2015: Clay creations
Today, Class 6 were very lucky to have a clay workshop with Lynn from Potty Dotty. As we are learning about the Ancient Egyptians, we made our own canonic jars. We had so much fun and I was so impressed with all the children's creations. Well done Class 6! Posted with Blogsy

June 16, 2015: Making Papyrus
Class 6 have been learning about the Ancient Egyptians. Today we found out how they used the papyrus plant for a variety of different things in their life, the most important being for paper. We have begun making our own papyrus paper in Art. We have had so much fun this afternoon and enjoyed getting quite messy! Posted with Blogsy

June 2, 2015: Elizabeth Baguley
Today, Lower School were extremely lucky to have Elizabeth Baguley (children's author) come in and work with them. With Class 6, she read the story of 'Meggie Moon' and then the children had ago at recreating part of this story using junk. With recyclable materials, we had to try and make a space rocket and use our imaginations to bring it alive. All the children were able to experience how their imagination can allow them to create exciting images in their mind and use this as a basis for some vivid writing. Elizabeth has inspired the children to see things differently and allow their imaginations to run free.

Whilst you're on half term can you all please collect kitchen roll insides, plastic bottles, boxes of all shapes and sizes and any other useful bits you might have lying around at home. Please send them washed and clean to any lower school teacher. We will be using them as part of a Literacy session on the first Tuesday back. Thank you and enjoy the rest of your half term. :) Posted with Blogsy

May 22, 2015: Tinkering
Today, Lower School took part in a Tinkering session. This involved the children making and inventing things with a variety of recycled materials such as wood, sticks and bolts to name a few materials. The children were able to let their imaginations run free and create whatever they wanted. It was an amazing opportunity and the children gained invaluable skills from this experience. Take a look at some of their brilliant and very creative inventions. Tinkering from Porchester Junior on Vimeo. Posted with Blogsy

May 9, 2015: Beautiful Butterflies in Class 7
On Friday, Class 7 were very lucky to have the artist , Peter Baldry, come into school to work with us. We created 3D butterflies for the tree, which has been painted in the Old Hall. Peter taught us how to make sure our butterfly was symmetrical and how to use the colour wheel so that we could use complimentary and contrasting colours. The results are gorgeous. The butterflies are on display now in the Old Hall. Posted with Blogsy
