We visited Hary Potter World as part of our literacy learning. Having spent lots of time reading, writing and generally enjoying ‘Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone’, we spent a day at the set in Watford. It was amazing!
We entered the Grand Hall and we were blown away! It was like the book came to life.
As we moved through the aircraft hangers, we spotted so many familiar objects and places.
Everywhere we looked we recognised things. There was so much to see and do. We lifted broomsticks magically, we boarded the Hogwarts Express and we tried to make it through platform 9 3/4.
The place was huge and some of it was outside. We saw the Dursleys’ house, the Knight bus, and we rode on the motorbike and in the flying car.
We walked down Diagon Alley. There were shops and places we recognised all around. We found it so exciting.
Some of us had group photos on the Hogwarts Express. The day was absolutely brilliant. We had a fantastic time.
The Forbidden Forest was open for a preview, and we were lucky enough to see it before the grand opening. We felt very special as we were some of the first to see it!
When we arrived back at school, we were very tired, but we had lots of tales to tell.
