Harry Potter Day

Marvellous Magic!

Whilst some of our year group have been out at Harry Potter Studios today, the rest of year 6 have been experiencing what life is like at Hogwarts! 

Children started the day by passing through the wall to Platform 9 3/4 before being sorted into their house by the Sorting Hat! Lessons soon began, starting with either Quidditch or an explosive Potions Class. Although we may not have had broomsticks, the children still learnt the rules of the game and it got rather competitive between the houses, especially when Professor Knight released the snitch. Meanwhile, in Potions Class, the children experimented with different ingredients, such as grounded unicorn horn and dragon's blood (extremely hard for Professor Parker to obtain), to make potions that grew, exploded and revealed if people had secrets or not! 

In the afternoon, the children then took part in Charm's class, where they learnt how to handle a wand and practised some simple spells - they do know that they are not allowed to use these in the muggle world. Following this, they learnt how to levitate a feather, just like in the movie! 

To end the day, the children took part in a History of Magic lesson, where we took a video tour of Hogwarts and then created our own artwork using oil pastels. 

All children successfully completed their first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry!
