LO: TBAT identify interesting vocabulary.


Have a look at the ‘Hagrid’s Description’ document.

Lesson 2:

LO: TBAT write a character description


Using your lists/table from lesson 1, try to create some descriptive sentences about the character of Hagrid.


You can use similes, alliteration and anything else you can think of to make your sentences more interesting.


Here are some examples to help:


A gloomy, suffering seeped from deep inside his soul, nobody knew what was going to happen to the baby boy.


Exploding from every part of his chin was a bushy, charcoal beard that looked like wire.

Lesson 3:


Lesson 3:

 LO: TBAT understand a character’s feelings.


Have a look at ‘Harry’s letter’.

  3. How would Uncle Vernon and Aunt Petunia feel if you went to this school?

Lesson 4:


Lesson 4:

LO: TBAT write a letter.


For this lesson, you are going to pretend that you are Harry Potter.


Have another look at ‘Harry’s Letter’.


You are going to write back to Professor McGonagall.


Remember to thank her for the opportunity to join the school, and let her know whether or not you will be attending Hogwarts school for witchcraft and wizardry (you have the choice!).


Will be attending

Won’t be attending

If you decide that you will be attending Hogwarts, tell the Professor what you are looking forward to doing at school. Perhaps you are looking forward to meeting other wizards, or you are excited to start learning about potions,  ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’, or ‘defence against the dark arts’.

If you decide that you won’t be attending Hogwarts, tell the Professor why. Perhaps you could talk about your ‘Muggle’ Aunt and Uncle, and how they wouldn’t approve.

Perhaps you share your Aunt and Uncle’s viewpoints of wizards, and you just want to be normal. This means that you could send an angry response to the Professor, letting her know that Hogwarts is not the school for you. 


Lesson 5:


TBAT complete the arithmetic practice test.



Lesson 5:


LO: TBAT complete the Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar task.
