July 11, 2016: Printing the Future
As part of our ever developing computing curriculum, we were excited this week to receive our latest piece of technology: a 3D printer. This amazing device allows us to print out 3D objects that can be held, examined, coloured and be amazed by. We already have a great piece of software within our PurpleMash online resource that allows pupils to create 3D designs of cars, trucks, lorries, buses, trains, houses, and various other 3D shapes. It's called '2Design&Make' (you'll find it in the 'tools' section of PurpleMash) and now, with our new 3D printer, we can take those pupil designs and make physical copies that can be held and coloured. In September there are plans to use this within lessons, and at other times across the curriculum too. We've tested it with a PurpleMash vehicle, as well as an ornamental vase, and Mrs Ingle has asked for a special object related to her class and a lesson topic...

November 13, 2015: Surprise visitor
In the middle of achievement assembly we had a surprise visit from a professor from the natural history museum. He was very impressed with all the research the children had done this week. Sadly, the egg has left Porchester to travel to the natural history museum where further investigations will be carried out. I would like to say a huge thank you to all the pupils for making this week eggcellent.. You have worked so hard looking for clues, experimenting with eggs, researching and caring for the egg. You really are eggceptional children. Thank you, Mrs I :-) Posted with Blogsy



November 12, 2015: Remembrance day
All children made and planted peace poppies as part of our Remembrance Day ceremony. Mr Martwich, our school caretaker, looked very smart in his military uniform and splendid array of medals. Mr Martwich served in the paratroopers for 35 years before seeing the light and coming to work at Porchester. :-)



November 12, 2015: Eggceptional Project Work
After discovering a strange egg in the quiet area on Monday morning, class 7 have spent the week investigating just what it could be, and how it got here. During the week we have been exploring the playground looking for clues, reading through books researching information, and looking at the video from our bird table webcam to try and work out just what has been going on. Everything we have discovered, researched and seen has been recorded in project booklets. Here is just one of their project booklets; Brilliant work from everyone in class, and a great weeks worth of creative thinking and writing. Well done everyone.

November 11, 2015: Sir David Attenborough and his elephant bird egg
http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02t9tdf/p02t9ssr Perhaps we have discovered an elephant bird egg too. Elephant birds are now extinct but many people are finding fossilised elephant bird eggs. Could our egg be an elelephant birds egg? Who do you think our egg belongs too? Posted with Blogsy
