The P7/6 class opened our doors to the familiar sound of Potter magical music and we entertained the children with fortune telling tea leaves, divination, charm school, spells, stage make up, quidditch indoors, photo booth and butterbeer. We recently purchased Harry Potter books for whole class reading and so far they are going down a storm. A book sale was held and parents invited in to enjoy the celebrations too.

We worked together in our Clan teams on lots of tasks to make our school environment tidier, brighter, more welcoming and caring for everyone who comes here. Lots of fantastic mums and dads came to help us. We painted wallboards, dug up enormous bushes, cleared out loads of rubbish, power-washed paths and benches and laid bark chippings. We even had all our windows cleaned inside and out so everything really does look brighter! Thank you very much to everyone who helped.
