Today, lower school had an Egyptian day. We had a fantastic day learning more about the Ancient Egyptians. We were lucky enough to have Partake come in to do some drama with us, based on the mummification ritual. They also demonstrated how people would have dressed in Ancient Egyptians times and the reasoning behind each thing. Within our classes we also made Egyptian collars and cartouche necklaces. It has been a very busy and exciting day. Take a look at our video to see some of the moments from the day. Ancient Egyptian Day from Porchester Junior on Vimeo. Posted with Blogsy Continue reading

We watched a video clip of 'One Man Band' and thought about the feelings that each character was going through. A super first lesson class 6, well done. Posted with Blogsy Continue reading

As part of our reading group, we have been reading Jonny Zucker's book 'Fleatectives case of the Slimy Bank Robbers'. We have read a couple of Jonny's books and have loved every single one. We were even fortunate enough to meet Jonny at our school a few month ago! Since meeting Jonny we have been very excited every time we have looked at one of his stories. Now we have finished reading the book, we have recorded what we liked about it and also why we love Jonny Zucker as an author so much. listen to ‘Jonny Zucker Fleatectives’ on audioBoom Continue reading

Today, Lower School were extremely lucky to have Elizabeth Baguley (children's author) come in and work with them. With Class 6, she read the story of 'Meggie Moon' and then the children had ago at recreating part of this story using junk. With recyclable materials, we had to try and make a space rocket and use our imaginations to bring it alive. All the children were able to experience how their imagination can allow them to create exciting images in their mind and use this as a basis for some vivid writing. Elizabeth has inspired the children to see things differently and allow their imaginations to run free. Continue reading

Today, Lower School took part in a Tinkering session. This involved the children making and inventing things with a variety of recycled materials such as wood, sticks and bolts to name a few materials. The children were able to let their imaginations run free and create whatever they wanted. It was an amazing opportunity and the children gained invaluable skills from this experience. Take a look at some of their brilliant and very creative inventions. Tinkering from Porchester Junior on Vimeo. Posted with Blogsy Continue reading

Today, Class 6 have started looking at instructions and explanations. They had to work in groups and one person needed to give specific instructions to draw a picture. Whilst having fun and laughing at the results, we discovered how hard it is to give precise instructions to others. Over the next couple of weeks we are going to learn the skills needed to give and write precise explanations and instructions. Posted with Blogsy Continue reading

This week, Class six have been set a difficult challenge! They needed to create their own TV adverts to sell a normal everyday product. Each group picked an item from the classroom and thought about techniques they could use to persuade people to buy it. The children needed to think of everything that we have learnt in Literacy and then they needed to work as a team to plan and direct their very own advert. Every group has also shown some very impressive ICT skills by using iMovie to put their advert together. I am so impressed with you all Class Six, well done.

Today, Class 6 went to Brackenhurst. The day started with us going on a nature walk where we collected different colours of nature that we found and then we made some lovely woolley bookmarks. After lunch, we were able to go and see the sheep and lambs. Although we didn't see any lambs being born, we were able to meet some twins that were only an hour old and even got to name them! We ended our day by having the experience of making our own cheese. I am so impressed with how well behaved Class 6 were today, they were true ambassadors for the school. Well done Class 6 and thank you for such a lovely day. Class 6 visit Brackenhurst from Porchester Junior on Vimeo. Posted with Blogsy Continue reading
