Before we allow ourselves to get lost in another book (or several) though, we’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who has taken part this year. You make all the literary schem...

Re: Chapter Challenges

Yeah, I've been really impressed by the thought and creativity that's gone into the resources to accompany the readings. I think if I was a child discovering the book for the first time then the little writing/drawing/crafting challenges would have really helped bring it to life (and even as an adul...

Thank you all so much for joining us! (And if you couldn't re-join us, we're so sorry about that - hopefully this won't ever happ...

Is there a Harry Potter quote, reference or joke that’s crept in to your day to day life? Sometimes when my family are discussing what we all have planned for the day and I don’t have anything particularly noteworthy to report, I’ll trot out ‘and I’ll be in my room, making no noise and pretending I’...

Growing up, I would always get ones filled with raspberry or strawberry jam (and dusted with sugar) if I was at a café with one of my parents so they're ...

May was an excellent month for points and I’m excited to see so many new and newly returned members on the list this time round. Without further ado…. The top point earner for May was Louis Walles of Slytherin with a very impressive 654 points. Very well done! Gryffindor: Dani Crespo - 360 Hufflepuf...
