November 28, 2018: My Perfect Future
As part of this weeks topic based work, we've been thinking about what machines we would like to see in the future to make our lives easier. Here are three ideas from some of the children in class.



October 30, 2018: Class 3 visit Ancient Egypt
What a half term we have had exploring Ancient Egypt in Class 3! Our weekly questions have taken us on quite a learning journey... First of all, we used atlases and the internet to research where Egypt is located and why the River Nile was so important to ancient Egyptians. We then investigated how artefacts can tell stories about the past. We had the chance to handle artefacts during our visit from Partake and we used the Rosetta Stone to translate messages into hieroglyphics. We considered how every day life would have been different to our lives now and acted out a day in the life of an ancient scribe using the 'now press play' headphones. We also mummified tomatoes, designed pyramids with hidden chambers, made death masks and used clay to sculpt canopic jars! Our topic work has led to some exceptional pieces of writing, including recounts from Howard Carter's perspective when he discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun, Pharaoh job descriptions and Egyptian Cinderella stories. We were even lucky enough to receive top tips for editing our work from our author in focus, Emma Carroll!



October 16, 2018: Masking the past
We had a really creative afternoon today as we created our own Egyptian Death Masks. By the end the afternoon the children had almost finished their very own masks in the same style as Tutankhamun’s.



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!



July 13, 2018: The Great Porchester Bake Off



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



January 26, 2018: Freddie's Roman Research
Freddie has been busy creating a wonderful piece of homework all about The Romans.



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.



January 16, 2018: Preparations
It's AD43 in Class 7, and they are preparing for something important. We're not allowed to tell you what - but we spotted them doing this in their classroom. Just what is going on?



November 17, 2017: Exciting news!
Well done to the children who found out today that their poems, which they created in Rhymecraft, are going to be published in a book next year! They should all be super proud of themselves. Writing for fun helps develop so many skills, including creativity, comprehension and fluency. Keep writing guys, who knows, maybe we'll have the next JK Rowling or Roald Dahl!
