A Day of Witchcraft and Wizardry for Year 6

Thank you to all the Year 6 children who joined us for our annual Year 6 Activity Day. We had over 100 children join us for a magical day filled with witchcraft and wizardry as part of this year’s themed day.

The day began with a visit to the chapel, where they were sorted into houses, ready to start the activities.

The morning was filled with wizarding lessons from wand making in D.T, making delicious cheese straw wands in Cookery and Potions in Chemistry to Wizarding pasts in History and the Physics of flight in Physics.

After a busy morning, the young wizards were ready for lunch in the Dining hall, decorated with rows of fairy lights, candles, and house-coloured napkins. Our fantastic catering team put on a wonderful themed lunch with everything from Hagrid’s House pie and Butterbeer cake to Howler’s parcels. There was lots of excitement in the room as the children enjoyed their meals whilst continuing to get to know their peers.

As lunchtime ended, it was time for our final activity, quidditch. The children split into their houses once again to play for the prestigious quidditch house cup! Although sadly, there were no flying broomsticks involved, points were quickly racking up, and the teams’ scores were very close.

Thank you to all the staff who made the day so special and the Year 6 children who joined us during the day. We hope you all had an enjoyable day and look forward to seeing you all soon.
