A Magical Beginning

"There are some things you can't share without ending up liking each other" -J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

What an amazing start to the school year we have had. Two wonderful weeks of the whole school coming together and sharing our current value of unity as we invited the children into the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

After receiving their letters of invitation through the post at the end of August, what would our new Year3 pupils discover on their first day at Porchester? Who would have guessed at an assortment of Professors to teach them in rooms that varied from Eeylops Owl Emporium, to Borgin and Burkes.

A maroon Hogwarts Express sat at Platform 9 3/4 in the old hall, whilst floating candles decorated the new hall as the children put on the sorting hat and it sorted them into their 'house'. And yes, it actually spoke to them deciding whether to put them in Vickers, Griffin, Abell or Wright (the names of the first four Headteachers of Porchester).

Lessons over the past fortnight have included wand making, learning about their own Patronus, potions and creating their own house shields, and, thanks to the generosity of parents and staff, some amazing objects have been on display in the school for the children to view.

Pottermania at Porchester!

What a fantastic start to the new school year! Porchester was transformed into Hogwarts over the summer and the children have really embraced our love of all things magical. There have been Harry Potter themed lessons all week and the children were even sorted into the four different houses of the first four headteachers of our school. Having the children from both lower and upper school work together to decorate their house shield was really lovely to see and our current value of unity was very evident. 

Have a lovely weekend with your muggles and we'll see you on Monday.

Reading Rocks

Mrs Foster was delighted to see children choosing to read during a wet Golden Time today.  Miss Mintey’s top 100 books has grabbed the children’s attention and made the children eager to read more. 

Reading is knowledge and knowledge is power! Look out! 0E47C5C1-2840-4BAB-BA01-683F9317E7EE

Farewell, Year6

That time of year has come around again as we have to say goodbye to all our Yr6 pupils as they leave us. They've made lots of memories during their time with us, and here are just a few of those memories.

Lower School Has Got Talent...

This morning, the children in lower school put on a talent show. There was no pressure to perform, it was just an opportunity for those who wanted to, to showcase their unique skills in front of each other. We were so impressed by the range of talent!
