September 13, 2019: 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. A truly magical start to the year, and who knows whether there is more to come...

Thank you to everyone who came into school today to see our reflections for The Romans. We were really pleased to see so many of you, and hope you enjoyed hearing about what the children have been learning.



January 19, 2018: Invasion!
After preparing their shields earlier in the week, the Roman soldiers in classes 1, 3 and 7 met in the hall on Thursday for their final instructions before they then marched off towards the Barbarian Celtic tribes in classes 4, 5 and 6. When attack horns were blown, the children stormed into the tribal areas, removed the local Chieftan, and forced the Celts to become Roman. Once the locals had agreed to a new way of life, the soldiers withdrew and began to write diaries recording their magnificent victory. Here are just two of the diaries from some of the Roman soldiers.
