This Term

To start our year with a flourish, we have chosen to study the magical world of Harry Potter and Dragons with our new theme, Magic, Muggles and Monsters. The children were immersed in all things Hogwarts during their first 3 days in Kilmar class. They made wonderful wands, scribed spells with feather quills, played Quidditch and were sorted into the four different Hogwarts Houses; Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, Slytherin and Gryffindor.

Our Literacy lessons this half term are based on the story Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Already we have looked at character descriptions and place settings, predicting what is going to happen next and working on creating drama and tension in our own stories.

In History and Geography we’re discovering how the idea of women being witches spread through the country in the 16th and 17th centuries and the consequences of these accusations and persecutions.

It’s all hubble, bubble toil and trouble in our science lessons, as we discover how changes in state occur. We are working towards creating our own magical mixtures and potent potions!

We will be working on this topic right up to Christmas, with the introduction of more dragon based materials after half term. We look forward to sharing our learning journey with you on Wednesday 21st November in our first class assembly.

The culmination of our topic will be on Friday 7th December when we have our Fantastic Finish at Warner Brothers Harry Potter Studio. We can’t wait it’s going to be a truly magical term.
