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 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.

February 12, 2018: Living Like A Roman
Class 7 had a great time on Friday when we had a whole day learning about what it would be like to be Roman. The children learnt how to march like Roman soldiers, how to carry shields in the famous "testudo" formation, tried Roman foods (the fish sauce was an acquired taste), played Roman games, learnt about some Roman objects and finally dressed like a Roman. Thank you to Partake. It was a brilliant day.



February 7, 2018: Meet the Mayor
Our Porchester Parliament members felt very privileged this morning during their visit to meet the Mayor in the council chambers. We learnt lots about what is involved in being a Mayor and we debated the topic of litter and recycling. We've come away with lots of ideas about how we can make an impact in our local community and further afield - watch this space...



November 27, 2017: Reverse Advent Calendar Update
Thank you all so much for your continued generosity! We are on day 12 and still going strong. I have been able to take 8 boxes FULL of food to the food bank already, and there are still 8 school days remaining. The difference you are making to other families lives is remarkable. It is you and your kindness that makes your children so wonderful and Porchester an amazing place to be! Thank you
