May 19, 2017: Takeaway Homework
Yet another piece of amazing homework from lower school. A very impressive video M! You should consider being a TV presenter when you leave school.

February 20, 2017: Volcano Day
After weeks and weeks of construction, today we made our volcanoes erupt using water, washing liquid, red paint, bicarbonate of soda and vinegar. We had great fun watching each volcano bubble up and burst over the side of the crater. In fact, we had so much fun we thought we'd turn the eruption into a video using iMovie, a SpecialFX app, and a greenscreen app.

February 7, 2017: Gifted and Talented
I gave the Gifted and Talented group a challenge, they were separated into two equal groups and then had a short brief to show the history of Porchester Junior School. Both groups decided to use the iPads to make movies, but went about recording their research in different ways. Each group then presented their findings to the whole school during an assembly. I am very proud of all of you for the work you put in, well done! Please find the two movies below and keep an eye out for their next project, Dream Poems!

January 26, 2017: How Does the Ear Work?
Class 7 have made a video to explain how sounds reach our ears, and how we can hear them.

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.

July 20, 2016: Gifted and Talented
The gifted and talented group have worked extremely hard for their final project. All the children have had an input. They came up with a concept to write and star in a play and have shown their skills in witting, directing, filming and editing. I was really keen that they also showed their individual talents and I think this comes across with the pianists, dancing, footballers, ICT skills and acting. They all worked well as a team and I'm proud of each of you for your patience and resilience in making your movie.

November 5, 2015: Year 5 International Languages Day
Today, all of Year 5 went to the Carlton Academy for an International Languages day. We took part in a French lesson, a Spanish lesson, Spanish gymnastic games and Indian dancing. It has been a fun and brilliant day. Thank you to everyone who was involved. Year 5 languages day from Porchester Junior on Vimeo. Posted with Blogsy

October 24, 2015: Class six reporters
Class six have come to the end of some of our topics this half term. We have all learnt so many new things and have throughly enjoyed our topics that have been covered. All of the children worked in groups and thought about what they have learnt and how they could report on this. The groups focused on the Mayans, Space and even brought in athletics. Have a look at their fantastic reports. Well done Class six, you made it very clear how much you have learnt over the last few weeks. Mayan art news report from Porchester Junior on Vimeo.

October 23, 2015: Skipping day
Today, we were really excited to hold a skipping day at Porchester. Each class had the opportunity to work with a skipping expert to improve their skills and learn new tricks. It was lovely to see everyone having fun whilst learning some tricky routines. We also finished the day by having a skipping show where different children were able to show their amazing talent from what they have learnt today. Thank you to our skipping expert for such a lovely day! Skipping day from Porchester Junior on Vimeo. Posted with Blogsy

October 21, 2015: Performing Poetry
We've been looking at performance poems in our English lessons this week, and as part of this work we rewrote a performance poem called "Animal Alphabet", decided on an action for each animal, and then recorded it. Here's our finished movie.
