July 11, 2017: Odysseus and Penelope
Last week class7 were looking at the painting 'Penelope with the Suitors", and producing some artwork based on the painting. In addition to the artwork, they also learnt about the character Penelope and her husband Odysseus. They discovered that Odysseus had been fighting in the Trojan war, and was trying to get back home but had been delayed by the actions of the Greek Gods. The class created postcards from Odysseus to Penelope explaining the delay in returning, and also one of the children took on the role of Zeus and explained why the Gods were trying to stop Odysseus.

October 1, 2015: Mayan achievements
Today, Class 6 learnt about the different achievements and inventions that the Mayan's created. We used a sorting activity to order their achievements according to what we thought was the most important and influential. It was interesting to see our different ideas and opinions so we discussed our reasonings behind our decisions. The justifications for the decisions were very impressive and had clearly been thought about carefully. Well done Class 6, I am really impressed with your work today Posted with Blogsy

July 17, 2015: 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. Ancient Egyptian Day from Porchester Junior on Vimeo. Posted with Blogsy
