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...

January 21, 2017: Year Six SATS revision resources 2017
http://www.porchester.notts.sch.uk/website/sats-revision-resources.html We have created a selection of resources to be used as revision aids for the forthcoming SATS tests for year 6.



December 19, 2016: Year Six SATS revision
We have gathered some superb resources in preparation for year six SATS tests, which can be found here: http://www.porchester.notts.sch.uk/website/sats-revision-resources.html They can be used to help your child revise or practice skills. We wanted to share them with you as soon as possible so the resources were there to dip in and out of. Keep the reading going, last years texts were very challenging! In school we have been using reciprocal reading, children become predictors, clarifies, questioners and summarisers. Predicting: makes logical predictions and uses information from wider knowledge, and personal experience to predict what will be in the text. Clarifying: identifies confusing words, sentences and ideas. Summarising: identifies the most important ideas in the text. Questioning: ask questions which encourage full understanding of the text; allows analysing and evaluating of the text. Mrs I.
