Thursday 2nd March was World Book Day and to celebrate, our librarian Mrs Heather Johns, put on a fantastic Harry Potter themed day.
Hogwarts took over the school and our houses became Hogwarts houses for the day. We also participated in the Hogwarts Teacher Exchange Programme and welcomed Professors McGonagall, Trelawney, Umbridge & Quirrell among others to Y Pant. Pupils were challenged to find all the Hogwarts staff during the day—a hard task as some had taken Polyjuice potion and looked a lot like Y Pant teachers.
We held a Harry Potter themed bake off and were highly impressed with ALL the amazing cakes that were brought in.
Bake Off Winners and Runners Up
Some pupils took part in a quiz in the Learning Resource Centre and then hunted for the missing snitches at the end. The quiz was won by Aneurin 2 (Hufflepuff), the team comprised of, Sam F Davies, Corey Luke, Evan Marsland-Davies, Elise-Marie Shaw, and Libby Lee.
We also challenged pupils to write a review of one of the Harry Potter books or films. We had some fantastic entries (which will be displayed in the Learning Resource Centre). The winners are:
- Harriet Kehl
- Laura Mathieson
- Jay Lock
Pupils were also encouraged to sum up their favourite Harry Potter moment in 140 characters. This was won by Caitlin Richards with the following:
In the first book, Fred and George throw snowballs at the back of Quirrell’s turban, or better known, Voldemort’s face! #HarryPotter
