On Monday 31st July, the English department celebrated Harry Potter's birthday in style. They gathered their scarves, wigs, and robes and transformed themselves into some of the best characters in the literary world. Teachers celebrated in various ways, but Ms Calvert gave her students a spectacular start to the week. Her students brought in different Harry Potter themed foods to create a shared lunch (breakfast)! From Harry's 11th birthday cake, to pumpkin juice and mandrake cupcakes - they had it all. Ms Calvert also tested her students on Harry Potter trivia, and sorted them into their rightful houses. Monday was a day full of glowing faces and quirky celebration!
Hi, my name is Ella and I love to read and write. I like to dance, swim, and play netball, but I also like academic activities such as blogging. My favourite subjects are French, English, and Media Studies. This is only my second year on the blog team, but we are all really close and have a great time!
