  7. This month we’re peering into the mirky depths with “Dreadful Denizens of the Deep” by an unknown author. Now this book is a bit of an enigma. It offers all sorts of fascinating details about those magical creatures that live deep under water, along with some dramatic first hand accounts from wizards who have come across them. But we don’t know anything about it’s author or when it was published. That’s because the only copy we’ve been able to find is from the Hogwarts library and the cover and title page are so badly water damaged (we think from students sneaking it down to the lake) that we just can’t discern any of the original publication information. But that’s no reason to swerve such an interesting read, so let’s dive in! Task 1: Task 2: Task 3:
  8. Giant squids are some of the most fascinating and mysterious creatures on earth and the members of the magical subspecies are even more so. Here at Hogwarts, we’re incredibly lucky to have one of these magnificent dwellers of the depths living on our grounds, basking in the sunshine and occasionally rescuing a student who happens to fall in. Trouble is, nobody quite knows how that came about…. Let’s speculate! In at least 100 words, please share your theory as to how our friendly neighbourhood squid came to live in the Great Lake To earn 10 rubies, post your response below by the 30th of April at 23:59 HOL-time.
  9. Merpeople are very protective of their settlements and their privacy. For that reason, wizards very rarely get insights into how they live day to day. Dreadful Denizens of the Deep contains a list of artifacts that were discovered in an abandoned village that used to be inhabited by merfolk. Let’s take a closer look… Create a collage of items you think might have been discovered in the merpeople’s village. Please keep your graphic to 600x600 pixels, upload it to an image hosting website and share the link. Alternatively, you could create a list of items: you should include at least 8 and describe each one in 2 lines or more. To earn 10 rubies, post your response below by the 30th of April at 23:59 HOL-time.
  10. Welcome to April Showers! As you might be able to guess from the name, this is an activity all about the magic of weather. So, get ready for some stormy skies and sunny spells (and fun tasks, of course). There will be 3 tasks released each week : a puzzle, a creative task and a trivia task. Each will be worth 10 rubies and there will be a 20 ruby bonus if you do them all, coming out at 140 rubies in all. Everything is due at the end of the month, at 23:59 HOL-time on the 30th of April. If you have difficulty with a task for accessibility reasons, please reach out to a Gryff staff member and we’ll work with you to find something that suits you better. I think that’s it so come on, let’s go splash in the puddles!
  11. If you have any questions about the activity, please ask them here.
  12. To help the employees at the Ministry of Magic forget that they’re working deep under ground, they use some clever enchantments. With the use of atmospheric charms and magical windows, they’re able to give people a taste of the outdoors even while they’re working at their desks. That got me wondering: if you could pick the weather you could see out of your window, what would you pick? Would you go for perpetual sunshine? Maybe you like cosying up while rain hammers on the roof? Or maybe you’d go for realism and go with the Great Hall approach so you could see exactly what’s going on outside? Tell us about the weather you’d most like to magic up for yourself in 100 words or more. Alternatively, you can create a graphic of it. If you take the graphics option, please keep your image to 600x600 pixels and upload it to an image hosting website, then share the link. Post your response below by 23:59 HOL-time on the 30th of April to earn 10 rubies!
  13. Task 3: Week 1 Trivia The questions for week 1 are… 1. What is the incantation for the spell that Hermione used to make Harry’s glasses repel water during a very rainy quidditch match in their third year? 2. ‘Chucking it down’, ‘nice weather for ducks’ and ‘cats and dogs’ are all British English slang terms for what kind of weather? 3. Which magical beast can create storms as it flies? 4. How many points does a snowflake have? 5. Which ministry official ordered a disguised Ron to sort out the rain in their office?
