PG Rated Film for Year 3 – Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

As part of Year 3’s ‘do you believe in magic?’ topic next half term, we would like to watch clips from the PG rated film ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’. We are using clips to inspire our writing, our science work on forces and computing work based around the Daily Prophet newspaper.


We always consider the clips we use carefully to make sure they are appropriate for their purpose and audience. If you wish to see more information on why the film has a PG rating, then details can be found on the British Board of Film Classification website here:


If you are happy for your child to participate in these enrichment activities, you do not need to return the reply slip.


We will be watching clips throughout the second half of term, with the first clips on our wow day on Monday 4th November 2019 to introduce the topic. These clips do not include any listed in the PG classification guidance.


Please indicate on the slip in the letter which has been sent out today only if you do not give permission for your child to watch the film.  If you wish to opt your child out of watching the clips, please return the slip by the morning of 4th November 2019.


Thank you for your continued co-operation.
