May 14, 2019: How do you make a cake without breaking eggs?
This was the question that Yr3/4 were asked as part of their topic based work around "How did World War II affect Porchester?" They already knew that rationing during the war meant people only had one egg per week, so how could they possibly bake cakes without eggs? Today, they all had a chance to find out as they prepared a wartime eggless sponge recipe, working together in teams, then placing their creations on baking trays and waiting for their hard work to cook. Once their cupcakes had cooked and cooled they tried them, and compared the taste and texture to a modern day, shop bought, cup cake. The result? Lots of them preferred the eggless cake so much they wanted the recipe to try out at home. So, here it is; 150g Self raising flour 50g margarine 50g sugar 1 tablespoon Golden Syrup 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda 1 dessert spoon of vinegar (white wine, not malt!) Milk to mix Sift the flour, rub in the margarine, add the sugar and golden syrup. Blend the bicarbonate of soda and vinegar and add to the other ingredients, with enough milk to make a sticky consistency. Place mixture into cupcake cases (allowing room to rise). Cook in a 180° oven for 15-20 minutes until the sponge springs back if pressed.



May 1, 2019: History Hunters
This morning lower school went hunting through history, learning about WWII. They investigated both primary and secondary sources, including artefacts, photos, letters, newspaper cuttings and information books. We were even lucky enough to inverview somebody who experienced WWII first-hand. Thank you to Mrs Slack for spending the morning with us, it truly brought our learning to life!



February 14, 2019: iPads or Spinning Tops?
Children in Lower School have truly demonstrated their creative flair this week, designing a range of games using the skills and knowledge that they have developed throughout our topic! From quiz style board games to games using electrical circuits to programming their own computer games! We even had the pleasure of sharing our learning with Upper School this afternoon...



January 8, 2019: A Victorian Adventure
What a wonderful day Year 3 and 4 had today when they visited Perlethorpe to learn about life in Victorian Times. From looking at artefacts, exploring the local church and discovering all about Victorian school lessons the children were immersed in this terms topic.



November 5, 2018: A Mystery at Porchester
Year 3 and 4 were shown a local newspaper headline today at the start of their new topic, and it seems not only did some of the staff see mysterious objects at the weekend, but so did many of the children. We have discovered that there are still strange nuts, bolts and other items around the school and the children are collecting them to help us try and solve the mystery of where these could have come from.



October 1, 2018: Bringing the past to life
As the Year 3 and 4 children are currently learning about the Ancient Egyptians, we invited Partake into the school to let the children experience Egyptian artefacts, aromas and clothes, as well as taking part in a recreation of an Egyptian ceremony. They seemed to really enjoy it, as you can see from the images in this slideshow.



September 10, 2018: The discoveries are about to begin
After settling into the school and their new classes, year 3 and 4 pupils in classes 3, 6 and 7 are about to start their topic focus for this half term. What will they discover about Ancient Egypt?
