Today, year 6 went on a spectacular school trip to the Warner Bros studio tour. There were all sorts of amazing pieces of art and experiences; from Hagrid’s hut to the Gryffindor common room!
First, we separated into groups of approximately five children and one adult and were given a passport to collect all of the stamps all around the tour. After that, a tour guide showed us upstairs where we put white gloves on to stop us damaging the props we were about to touch. Then, the tour guide let us examine and feel the props and make up a story using them.
When we had finished doing that, we went downstairs and had a snack out of our lunchbox and went into the actual studio tour. First, we saw the very same cupboard under the stairs that Daniel Radcliffe sat in!
Then, we took out our passports and stamped it. You had to press very hard though so some people asked their teacher to do theirs. From there we explored the entire place in our small groups. We saw everything from the costumes the actors wore to the Gryffindor common room. It was incredible!
Then we explored Gringotts, the wizard bank where there was an amazing 3D mini film. Then we went to the Forbidden Forest where the acromantular were hanging from the ceiling and it was really creepy!
After that, we went outside and bought some of the amazing butter beer (which I personally loved) or the butter beer ice cream (which was also amazing!) We also ate our lunch before exploring Number 4 Privet Drive! There were even all of the letters suspended in mid-air. Then we saw the Hogwarts express which was one of the best bits. In each carriage was a year at Hogwarts: the second carriage had nothing in because Harry and Ron flew in a flying car to school that year. But in the third carriage, the windows were frosted up from the Dementors and in that one there was an interactive experience. You sat in the carriage and Dementors flew by and made you jump when they suddenly appeared.
