Year 4 Go to Hogwarts!

To celebrate all of the fantastic learning which has been going on, Year 4 celebrated a Harry Potter ‘dress up’ day this Wednesday 22nd February.  The school was awash with the four colours of each of Hogwart’s Houses: Gryffinfor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff & Ravenclaw.

This term, Year 4 have been immersed into the world of Harry Potter, reading Harry Potter & the Philosopher’s Stone.  They have absolutely loved their Guided Reading sessions on this book and have really excelled at retrieving key information to help explain their understanding of the book.

In PE, all students have been learning the many complex rules of Quidditch thanks to our Mr Stanlake, our PE coordinator, training up our young Witches and Wizards in their first ever session. Since then, the students have relished the many challenges of this magical sport and have absolutely loved playing it!  From chasing the Quaffle, dodging bludgers and seeking the snitch, there has been plenty for all to get excited about- check out the action shots below!

In English, they have described Hogwarts using adventurous adjectives, similes and metaphors to really showcase the magic that conjures up Hogwarts castle.  In addition, they have also experienced a Potions lesson with Professor Emery and Professor Peck.  This involved concocting a potion, deciding upon its magical value and then advertising their potion to the masses.

The students were incredible and bowled us over with their enthusiasm and flair for writing this term.  Their persuasive posters and adverts were of spell-binding quality.  Check out the pictures of the students and teachers having an incredible time below!
