This term our project is based around the house team in Harry Potter. We will be aiming to re brand our school houses and create new logos and designs for them in a Dragon's Den pitch at the end of the term. 

We will be looking at what qualities are needed to be a valued member of one of our houses. 

In literacy we will be creating biographies of the house leaders at Hogwarts, Persuasive writing among other genres. In textiles we will produce our own house cushions- showing off our design skills as well as our sewing skills! We will also be joining Professor Sprouts Herbology class in Science! There are so many other amazing things we will be doing so take a look at the planning below to find out more information. 


On Monday 18th April we will be visiting Harry Potter Studios. We will take the I pads with us to gather as much evidence as possible which will help us to re brand our school Houses. STAY TUNED FOR THE PHOTOS OF THIS DAY!
