After the success of last year’s trip, The Cedars Academy English department is again arranging an educational trip to the Warner Brothers Studio Tour – The Making of Harry Potter. This year there will be two trips: Wednesday 9th May and Wednesday 16th May. Pupils will only be able to attend one of the trips.
The trip is an excellent opportunity to develop pupils’ understanding of narrative and screenplay writing and will complement the Narrative Writing unit studied during the summer term in Year 7. The day will involve a visit to Warner Bros studios in Leavesden, where the Harry Potter films were created and filmed. The day will involve:
• A guided tour of the studio sound stages, including the sets from the films, props and costumes from tour staff
• A writing workshop, taught by qualified teachers where pupils will have the opportunity to study the structure and elements of story writing.
