4K - Kettlewell

Autumn Term 2 2017 

 

Our second topic during the Autumn term is: Welcome to Hogwarts. We will experience first hand what it's like to be a wizard at Hogwarts. The children will receive their Hogwarts letters and will get sorted into the four Hogwarts houses. They will play Quidditch, make potions and even drink Butterbeer! Our Art focus is looking at two artists, John Howe and Alan Lee. Our science topic this term is Sound. Our exciting Music topic will also be linked to Harry Potter! 

Orienteering

The children arrived at school to find 4K transformed into the Great Hall. The children were called forward to be sorted into their houses and drank Butterbeer to celebrate. The children then ate jelly beans, but were they tasty or were they disgusting? 

The Hogwarts letters arrive!

Something strange has been happening at Yeadon Westfield Junior School. Owls have been sighted in the day  and cats have been creeping around the school grounds. Feathers and prints found by the children evidenced this. The children came back from swimming to find their Hogwarts letters placed around school. The children watched the clip of Harry opening his letter and the children then opened theirs! Let's the magic begin! 

AUTUMN TERM 1 2017
