HHPA’s Book Week – 9th May 2022

Words could not describe the buzz of excitement around the school during Book Week.  The children looked amazing in their magic inspired costumes and our academy felt more magical than Hogwarts.  We even had our very own Professor Mcgonagall greeting the children at the gates!

We kickstarted the day with a spellbinding assembly led by Mrs Wonka to give everyone the opportunity to admire the wide range of costumes and celebrate all things reading.  Each class then immersed themselves in a key text inspired by our theme ‘The Magic of Reading.’

Excitement oozed out of each class as children hunted for magical creatures, experimented with potions, tested and designed magical sweets, entered magical wardrobes and created shapeshifting creatures and curious beasts!

Across the school children drew upon these experiences to produce the most exceptional pieces of writing that can be seen proudly displayed in our school corridors.  We rounded up the week by bringing in our favourite books from home and sharing them with children from another class.  The smiles on the children’s faces say it all and demonstrates how much pleasure and joy books can bring us.
