Year 5 Witches, Wizards and Wands Festival

last week we were delighted to welcome year 5 students from our local feeder schools to CVA for our Witches, Wizards and Wands festival. Students spent the day taking part in workshops which included writing spells, working out magic numbers, making up potions and there was even a spot of Quidditch!

I just wanted to say how amazing yesterday was for our children. The Harry Potter day was truly a magical experience for our children. The staff and year 11 pupils that led us round were amazing, a credit to your school. It was such a lovely way for our children to see the change at Castle View. The staff had obviously put a lot of effort in and it was lovely to see all the different subjects being used to inspire the children. I am hopeful that it happens again next year as I will be highly recommending it to our head.

 

Thank you once again for this wonderful experience for our children.

Portsmouth Book Award 2019

On Wednesday 12th June a group of our Year 8 students visited to attend the Celebration Event of the Portsmouth Book Award to find out who had won the award for 2019.

This brought an end to 5 months of reading for the students. Ele Fountain won the award with her novel Boy 87, which the students were pleased about as she was their preferred choice too.

During the event the students got the opportunity to meet Ele Fountain who gave a talk to the students about writing and her inspiration of writing Boy 87 during her time working in Ethiopia.
