World Book Day

Excitement, enchantment, & exhilaration filled the air during the transfiguration from ‘Heywood’ into ‘Hogwarts’ School!  During assembly, pupils were transfixed by the ‘Sorting Hat’ ceremony, in which four lucky children wore the magical hat in turn, to see which of the coveted positions of House Captain (Slytherin, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Gryffindor) would be bestowed upon them for the day…

In a ceremony full of sophisticated sound and visual effects, Cass, Natasha, Monty and Anna were scrutinised by the Hat and - based on qualities we nurture here at Heywood, such as courage, perseverance, loyalty and creativity - were ‘sorted’ into their respective roles to a cacophony of applause!

From this wondrous start, the day continued to enthral and engage.  Divination, Herbology, Quidditch, Astronomy, Transfiguration, Charms, Potions, Magical Symbolisms & Art were enthusiastically taught.    These sessions, coupled with lots of shared reading and collaborative whole-school story-writing (the culmination of which was read aloud at the end of the day, by Heywood’s Head Witch) resulted in a simply unforgettable celebration of books and reading!
