Harry Potter day 6th January
To celebrate the hard work during the Autumn Term's literacy topic, we had a Harry Potter celebration day. The children were asked to come in fancy dress. The costumes were excellent with prizes given to:
Millie Jefferson - Hedwig
Joseph Stollery- Professor Quirrel
Daniel Loader- Hagrid
Harrison Joel- Dobby
Erin Micallef- Moaning Myrtle
Ryan Sibley- Hagrid
We played a game of Quidditch, had potions and pumpkin juice to drink, tasted Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans, made cakes which when bitten into would decide which of the four houses the children would be in, a Harry Potter quiz and finally watched the Philosopher's Stone.
Lego Creativity 13th January
The children began the day by working in small groups to try to explain what 'creativity' means to them. They then used those ideas to think about jobs which require you to be creative and realised that there are thousands!
The first challenge with LEGO involved the children creating their version of Christmas using only 21 pieces of LEGO.
The next challenge was to build 'cold' using 15 pieces of LEGO.
The main task that they were set was to create a toy. They needed to think about who the toy was for, its unique selling point, the design, the product value and a logo. Once they had planned, they built they toy using the LEGO. After lunch the children used iMovie to film, take photographs and record an advert for their toys.
