Week Beginning 8.1.18
To launch our Harry Potter topic, the children came into a dark classroom with Harry Potter music playing. Miss McLaughlin even dressed as Harry Potter!
There was a mysterious wizard's hat on a chair - we later discovered this was the famous Sorting Hat. Each child was called up to wear the Hat. They were then randomly assigned one of the four Hogwarts Houses: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw.
The first House challenge was to create a House Motto and a banner. Challenges will continue throughout the topic and House Points will be awarded. Watch this space!
