Year 4 are coming to the end of their Harry Potter topic and this week, we have been focussing on letters. We have talked about the difference between formal letters, such as Harry’s invitation to Hogwarts and informal letters, such as ‘Howlers’. A Howler is a magical letter in a red envelope which enchants the written message into the writer’s voice, usually at a very high volume. We wrote our own howlers and then had a go at making one for a classroom display. We really enjoyed making something creative and are pretty pleased with our results!
