As part of our Harry Potter topic, the children have been making ‘Book nooks’ based on a particular scene from the series. We found a story about ‘Book nooks’ online, and have been searching for more examples ever since. A ‘Book nook’ is a magical , miniature world, lost inside a book case. The idea is to hide them amongst other books for people to stumble upon.
The children have really taken to them, and have been creating some excellent versions. After getting into small groups, they have chosen a scene, such as Diagonal Alley or The Forbidden Forest, and have carefully sourced how they want to make their ‘Book nook.’
They started by using cardboard boxes, and then sketched a design in their topic books. Using paint, wood, clay and even fake grass, their designs are starting to bear fruition.
To make things more exciting, the winning entries were on display at Waterstones in Poole on the 8th February as part of their Harry Potter day celebrations, and some of the children will have the opportunity to represent their designs in store.
A few snapshots below show how the children are getting on – watch this space for their final versions!
