HARRY POTTER NIGHT!

10 February 2020

Dear Parents/Carers

Please find ticket link below for Harry Potter Book Night on the 27th February. 

Please book by 14th February so we have an idea on numbers.  We will be baking cakes for the sorting ceremony and there will be a 'Honeydukes' tuck shop. We will of course keep everything nut free and vegetarian (but not vegan), and will make a small selection of gluten free cupcakes, so please make sure your child lets us know if they are gluten free.

Your child does not need to bring any spending money, and dressing up is not essential but they will enjoy it more if they do!

Thanks

Harry Potter Book Night

Harry Potter Book Night: The Triwizard Tournament

SAVE THE DATE and REQUEST FOR VOLUNTEERS  -  Thursday 27 February

Dust off your cloak, polish your broomstick and practice your Summoning Charm, it's time for Harry Potter Book Night!

For those of you new to the juniors, this is an annual after school event we have been running for the last few years.  It’s a fun celebration of the hugely popular books by JK Rowling and brings all the Harry Potter heads together for an evening of magic - teachers, parents and pupils alike.

Please save the date of Thursday 27 Feb.  More info on how to book a place for your child will follow in another email over the next few weeks, please keep an eye out if you are interested.

This year the theme is The Triwizard Tournament.

As ever this will be a ticketed event, and there will be a small charge per pupil to help cover our costs.

We will need help with decorations, lots of baking, and making a few props to make sure the evening goes as magically as possible…the more the merrier,  

We are just about to start organising so if you want to find out more, and are able to help with preparation and/or on the night, please email Ruth rhorsman2.209@lgflmail.org

We will be running some specific tasks and activities based on the fourth book which is Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, but don’t worry if your child hasn’t read this yet as there will be plenty of other things to do.
