As part of our Flashbackwriting English unit, year 6 were lucky enough to visit the Warner Bros. Studio Tour yesterday. Year 6 had studied a variety of scenes from both the written and film versions of Harry Potter, while analysing how flashbacks can be shown in different media. This trip was an excellent chance for them to see many elements of the film come to life.
While at the studio tour, the children were able to see over 14,000 real items, cotumes and props from the films. To make this trip even more special, we visited during the ‘Hogwarts in the Snow’ season, which sees the whole studio decorated for Christmas. Some of their favourite moments from the day included: seeing the Great Hall, which was set up for a Christmas feast; getting the opportunity to board The Hogwarts Express; completing the broomstick riding experience; and a chance to see how fire and snow are made in the films. Not forgetting the spiders… The Forbidden Forest was especially exciting for many.
