Imaginative Magical Sweets!

Mrs Adcock’s Year 7 English class have all become Harry Potter fans as a result of reading and listening to Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone each week. Of course, lots of them have read the Potter books before, but, as several of the class said, reading as a class is a different and hugely enjoyable experience.

For homework, the group were set the task of creating their own magical sweets to go with those already found in the pages of J K Rowlings novels such as Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beams, Chocolate Cauldons and Fizzing Whizzbees. They had to describe their imaginary sweet and what it’s magical qualities were as well as give it a suitably Potter-esque name.

“This was a great thing to do for homework. It really made me think about what magic I would like to happen to me,” said Maia whose ‘Baby Rainbows’ enduce happiness and a beautiful rainbow to appear when you eat them. Maia produces a superb animation to explain her new sweet.

Some of the class actually produced their sweets and brought them into class. Karolina’s ‘Magical Bonbons’ were orbs of coloured candy and the flavour of Ava’s jelly sweets was revealed by their name: The Sourest of Sour Sweets. Jude made soft and squidy ‘Toxic Chocs’ with a tangy cherry kick to them whilst Oscar’s bag of tiny jelly babies were in fact super-chewy jaw-breakers! A sweet that reveals your destiny and allows you to travel through time to find out what the future holds for you was suggested by Phoebe Wright.

“The Harry Potter books are so good to read, they are interesting and funny and we all really love fantasy stories. It makes a change to read a fantasy as our previous book was ‘War Horse’ by Michael Morpurgo which was great, but a bit sad!” said Phoebe.
