Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone...



During Term 3, we have begun to read Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. We are loving listening to the story and reading it aloud. 








In the text, we have been inferring the details that are hidden within the character descriptions of characters such as: Mr Dursley, Mrs Dursley, Professor McGonagall and Professor Dumbledore.
