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...

October 8, 2018: Trojan Horses
Last week we learnt all about the Trojan War and why we should ‘Beware Of Greeks bearing gifts,’ We worked in teams to create our own Trojan Horses which had to: hold 20 soldiers (Lego figures) move have a way for the soldiers to escape in the night not look like a box of soldiers! I think you can agree the children all met their success criteria and did really well to say they only had one day!

March 13, 2018: World Book Day
Despite the snowy weather, we celebrated WBD, just a week later! The children looked amazing and made a fantastic Shelfie with items bought in from home to decorate it. I m sure you will agree that our book shelf has never looked so good! Well done class 4

March 13, 2018: Archeology
Today we discovered some Viking artefacts (thank you Mr Widdowson and your amazing 3D printer) and used spoons no brushes to delicately uncover these riches. We then had to use the books, iPads and laptops to find out what we had uncovered. We then presented our findings to the rest of the class. True historians in actions!

February 2, 2018: Editing
A demanding part of writing is editing, the skill of being able to go back through your work to spot and correct mistakes, make improvements and think about what you haven't put in your writing that you Should! Today Class 4 helped each other by editing their work together. It was wonderful to see them persevering, being resilient, positive, friendly, supporting and inspiring together.

February 2, 2018: Improving sentences
Class 4 have been enjoying looking at different pictures on Pobble 365. Today we looked at a stunning photograph of an ant on a leaf, floating on water. The children had to improve the sentence 'The ant floated on the leaf.' Just look what they came up with! Well done, Class 4

Wow! Upper school are learning all about Earth and Space for their topic 'Where in the Universe am I?' All the children have their 'Bingo' homework of activities and they are coming in steadily already. Thank you. However, three stars have decided to go above and beyond with their homework. Daisy, Minnie and Freya decided the homework we set wasn't enough so they got researched, designed and created these amazing pieces! These show true learning, creativity and pride. Keep it up and I hope you inspire others!

November 19, 2017: How the Beast became!
This week we explored changing the physical in our writing and wrote our onw version of how the Beast became stories. We explored active and passive voice as well as similies and metaphors. The children worked as hard as ants getting their stories completed.
