We made 3D shapes using nets and then created a Quidditch pitch. Anyone fancy a match? Quidditch is a wizarding sport played on broomsticks. It is the most popular game among wizards and witches, and, according to Rubeus Hagrid, the equivalent to Muggles' passion for football.
The game is played by two teams of seven people (three Chasers, two Beaters, one Keeper, and one Seeker) and involves four balls (a Quaffle, two Bludgers, and a Golden Snitch).
Ron Weasley received a Howler from his mother after he stole his father's Flying Ford Anglia. A Howler is a red letter sent to signify extreme anger or to convey a message very loudly and publicly. Upon opening it, the sender's voice, which has been magically magnified to a deafening volume, will bellow a message at the recipient and then self-destruct. If it is not opened or there is a delay in opening it, the letter will start smouldering, explode violently, and shout the message out even louder than normal. We had great fun acting out this scene.
The Tri-wizard Tournament in Year 6 was a huge success! All children participated in three events: quidditch shot, pass the quaffle and the broomstick relay. The three events were combined into a grand finale of frenzied competition. The eventual and worthy winners were Ravenclaw!
ROVING REPORTERS FOR THE DAILY PROPHET
During Harry Potter week, Year 6 took up the challenge of interviewing children from across the whole school in order to write newspaper reports on all the exciting events. We were lucky to discover many wonderful wizardy activities such as: horrifying howlers, pungent potions and mysterious Marauder maps.
St John's children were definitely having a marvellous, magical time!
We made this potion in class. If it turned blue all your dreams will come true. Take a look at what happened.
First stage done. Now look what happened next.
WOW! What a great end to a fantastic week. Let's hope that all Year 6's dreams come true.
