As I’m sure you are aware, the Harry Potter studios have closed their doors until further notice. Unfortunately, they are not able to offer us an alternative date. Consequently, a full refund will be issued in due course. Once we receive information regarding this, we can pass it onto you. We understand that the Year 6 children are disappointed, so on Friday, we will be holding a Harry Potter themed day where the children can continue to make their products and watch the first Harry Potter film: the philosopher’s stone. This film is rated as PG. Should you prefer your child to not view the film, please let us know.
Further to this, we are also unable to proceed with our Potions Fair this Wednesday. The outstanding products will still be made this week. An alternative date will be arranged.
At this present time, as far as we know, Bikeability will still go ahead next Monday 23rd. Should anything change, we will let you know as soon as possible.
If you have any questions, please get in touch.
