October 18, 2017: Stonehenge Sunsets
As we come to the end of our half term project, we have created some wonderful artwork of a Stonehenge silhouette in front of a stunning sunset. Here are just a few examples of their creations.



October 13, 2017: Stonehenge never looked so tasty...
Today, class 7 built models of Stonehenge using biscuits. Never mind sarsen stones, we had complicated custard creams, pesky pink wafers, baffling bourbons and strangely difficult shortbread biscuits to make our Stonehenge models with. We followed our class instructions, which we had written earlier in the week. Class 7 were amazing at working in teams and evaluating their designs. They were also brilliant at resisting the temptation to eat Stonehenge whilst it was being built! Well done everyone! Biscuit Stonehenge



September 30, 2017: Cave Art Investigation
This week in Class7 we have looked at Stone Age cave art. When we looked at this picture we noticed that the animal drawn seemed to have extra legs. We wondered why it seemed to be drawn with seven legs, and wondered if a recent scientific idea that the flickering flames in a cave would have made shadows covering some legs, creating an animated running animal. Using a MoverKit (that can be programmed to look like flickering firelight) we tried it out. We added some "eyebrows" to the MoverKit to create some shadows on the painting and then looked at the result. Did Stone Age people create animated cave art? We investigated... pic.twitter.com/xkT1bGSwAI — Porchester Junior (@porchester) September 30, 2017 The class were split. Some of them thought they saw movement, some said they couldn't see any movement. What do you see?



September 26, 2017: Junior Archaeologists
Class7 have been learning about how archaeologists study the past, and today they became archaeologists themselves. They carefully searched through the ground and found a range of objects from the past that they had to try and identify and also work out what they could be used for. Archaeological Dig Images



September 24, 2017: Stone Age Safari
"The animals are ready, are you?" Come and join class 7 on a Stone Age Safari. Grab one of their amazing Safari guides full of information about where you might see a Woolly Mammoth, a wolf or a Sabre toothed cat along with information about those animals. And if you get hungry, they've even thought about guiding you to a Stone Age café for refreshing herbs, berries and nuts.



September 17, 2017: What a week
I have just finished marking class 7's books after their first full week, and I am amazed by the brilliant work ALL the children have done. Class 7 you really do rock and, if you can keep this standard up all year, you are going to be awesome 👍 Here is just a small sample of what has been produced;



September 9, 2017: The Future
What a wonderful start we have had to the new school year in class7. We've all been thinking about the jobs we would like to have when we are older, and there have been some amazing suggestions that we have put up on the wall in our classroom. Here are just a few of the children's aspirations.
