The Making of Hogwarts

Our novel study this term is Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. As a year level, we really got into it and transformed our classrooms into Hogwarts, to suit our work.

We have engaged in Novel Study tasks each week, which have involved summaries and analysis’s for each chapter. During our ‘Harry Potter Time’ (time allocated to spicing up the classrooms), Mr Huebl suggested documenting our ‘journey.’

Here is the movie I put together to ‘document our journey’. I hope you enjoy,

I heaved the door open and peeked inside to make sure it was safe. The barn was empty apart from some hay bales, but it would be good enough for the night
