In the summer of Year 5, our class embarked on an exciting trip to London that was filled with unforgettable experiences. One of the highlights was watching the spectacular performance of “The Lion King” at the renowned West End theatre. The vibrant costumes, mesmerizing music, and incredible acting left us in awe throughout the show.
Another magical adventure awaited us at the Harry Potter World. As we entered the enchanting world of Hogwarts, we were immersed in the captivating wizarding universe. From wandering through Diagon Alley to exploring the grand halls of Hogwarts Castle, it truly felt like we had stepped into the pages of J.K. Rowling’s beloved books.
Furthermore, it was also a chance to broaden our horizons and learn about different cultures and religions. We embarked on a faith trail and had the opportunity to visit a beautiful mosque. The imam warmly welcomed us and shared fascinating insights into the Islamic faith. It was a humbling experience that allowed us to appreciate and respect different religious practices.
Back in the classroom, we delved into the subject of geography and focused on earthquakes. We learned about their causes, effects, and the measures taken to mitigate their impact. It was both eye-opening and sobering to understand the destructive power of these natural phenomena.
In art, we explored the intricate world of set design. Inspired by our visit to Harry Potter World, we created imaginative sets for our favourite scenes from the books. It was a chance to let our creativity soar and bring the magical world of Harry Potter to life through our artwork.
English had us practicing letter writing, and what better theme than Harry Potter? We penned heartfelt letters portraying Harry Potter himself, expressing our admiration and gratitude for the magical world they introduced us to. It was a fun and engaging way to enhance our writing skills while expressing our love for literature.
