As you are all aware, classes will break for Easter Holiday next Thursday at noon. They will resume on Monday 12 April.

If you have made arrangements with your parents and your head of house to return home, they will be expected to come and pick you up from the premises in person.

Otherwise you may enjoy the castle and the school grounds until curfew as normal.

Subject:Potions Homework for All Students
Posted by:potionprofessor.
Time:6:53 pm.
Mood: working.
Students: This particular assignment will be due one week from today on 18 March.

Please give me one parchment length on the usage of the potion ingredient 'Lovage'. I want to know what type of potions it is typically used in and which parts are used. Please see your Potions Text for this information.

Then, using outside resources, which you may find in the library. Give me another parchment length on a usage for Lovage which is a clear waste of time and for which points may be deducted if you do so within these walls.

I expect exam quality work from each and everyone of you and if you do not do so, I shall be assigning detentions accordingly. In class next Monday we will be working with lovage, I expect each of you to spend this weekend preparing yourselves for this situation.

Welcome once again to Herbology Class!

I would like to remind the 5th years, and the 4th years also, that OWLS are not very far off, and you must be working extra hard. No slacking off!

NEWT students, you also are expected to show your best effort, this may effect your chances at whatever job you wish to persue.

And now, for your assignment.

1st-4th years: You will be extracting bubotuber pus from the bubotubers, and then diluting properly. Remember, 1 part pus, 6 parts water, boiling in your cauldron! Then you must replant it in fresh dragon dung compost. If you do well enough for me to send it to Madam Pomfrey for acne medicines, you will receive extra credit. You must write a paragraph on how you extracted the pus, a paragraph on how you diluted it, and then place the paragraph and the vials of pus on my desk.

5th-7th years: You will be researching the Devil's Snare more in-depth than you have previously, write a paragraph on it, and a paragraph on the plant it is commonly mistaken for, which you must identify. The paragraph should be placed on my desk.


All classes: Write your name, house, and year on the tops of your papers please. Also, please remember to consult your textbook if you need help.

Assignments are due on Monday, March 1st!

Hogsmeade Weekend



Students of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry:

As many of you may have heard, the rumours that Hogsmeade is being rebuilt are true. The Minister of Magic, Cornelius Fudge has ordered this reconstruction to be a top priority and has decreed that the village will be once again habitable by 26 February.

While many of the shops and places may not be open, most of you, including myself, will be quite pleased to hear that the Three Broomsticks and Honeydukes are among the businesses that will reopen at this time. The faculty of Hogwarts and myself, have decided to allow, under the strictest security, a Hogsmeade weekend the Saturday of 28 February. This will be a shorter period of time than is usual, but will be an opportunity for those of you second year or above to escape the castle for a few hours.

Please prepare accordingly and begin to save your galleons to support Honeydukes grand reopening. You can bet that I will be getting a chocolate frog or two at this time.

Dear Hogwarts Student:


The Hogwarts Faculty hopes you have enjoyed your holidays at home. The Hogwarts Express will leave from Platform 9 3/4 at 11:00 AM on 10 January to bring you back to school for second term. Please continue to remember that pets are acceptable, but other substances such as Firewhiskey, dungbombs, and other items on Mr Filch's list are not. I should hate to see any of you obtain a detention this term.

A change has been made in the school system. Due to the current political climate and as an extra safety precaution, the Hogwarts faculty has decided that all incoming Owls to each student will be checked first before being allowed to reach the addressee. This should not effect any mail from friends or parents and is implimented only to keep students safe from those who might intend to cause harm through Owls.

We look forward to your return to school and wish you all a safe journey from Platform 9 3/4 to Hogwarts.

Sincerely,

Professor Albus P. B. W. Dumbledore
Headmaster Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

Sibyll Trelawney enters the tower, where she has various incense sticks and oils burning, the smells of sandalwood, jasmine, and nag champa filling the room and mixing together.

'Ah yes... students... today we shall be beginning Palmestry,' she steps over in front of the fire, shawls waving and tiny bells on the hem of one of them clinking lightly.

'I should like you all to open your textbooks and look at the various lines in your hand. Please follow through this analysis of your palms and when you have finished, and your results have been calculated according to the table on page seventy-two, please copy down the answers about your heart line.

'Then, using that information, take at least one hundred words to look at how you believe this has been accurate in the past and how you believe it may be continue to be accurate in the future...

'If you need any help whatsoever please raise your hand and I shall come to look at what you have... Some of you may have unfortunately short lifelines or abnormally large number of lines which indicate how many children you will have...'



Your reports must be turned in by next Monday'

Subject:Herbology Homework
Posted by:herbprofessor.
Time:4:31 pm.
Well, students. I hope you've had a nice lunch. Now, let's get down to Herbology!

Today we will be exploring the effects of Geranium Fangs on Chinese Chomping Cabbage. Make sure to put your Name, Year, and House on your homework, or it will not be graded.

First through Fourth Years
You will be creating a diagram of the flower of the Chinese Chomping Cabbage. Chinese Chomping Cabbage has the magical flower, and Non-Magical does not. You must then label the parts to this Fanged Geranium.
Fanged GeraniumCollapse )

Fifth through Seventh Years
I need not remind you that some of you have O.W.L.s coming up, and the rest of you will be taking N.E.W.T.s in a year or two, so your expectations are much higher.

You will be testing the effects of Geranium Venom on the Chomping Cabbage. You will be using the Fangs you extracted a few weeks ago. They have been soaking in solution and are now ready to be used.
Please describe everything you do below, and set the finished product on my desk. Make sure you read the directions once through before starting.

1. Carefully use a scalpel to cut the now-soft Geranium Fangs in half. Scrape the bluish powder you see inside into a small clay bowl. This is the venom.
2. Light a fire and, using crucible tongs, hold the bowl over the fire until the powder has melted into a liquid. Extinguish your fire and set this liquid aside.
3. Your Chinese Chomping Cabbage will be in the front of the room. After aquiring it, you must very carefully pull it out of the pot, making sure not to break off the flower on top.
4. At this point, you will start to hear a "Chomping" sound. This is where the Cabbage gets its name. You will see little spores protruding from the roots of the Cabbage. When these come into contact with air, the flower on top will start to make this noise, and will open up.
5. Quickly pour the Geranium Venom liquid into the flower, then you must immediatly replant it into the pot.
6. The Flower should turn purple almost immediatly and fall off the stem. Set the Cabbage on the shelves in the back of the Greenhouse, and label your pot. We will be using them in future lessons. Then take the flower, which will smell quite rancid, and put it into the clay bowl, adding a miniscule amount of water.

Place the clay bowl with the flower on my desk. Make sure it is labeled. It should be a plum-purple color, and smell rancid. If it is eaten, it cures the Bat-Bogey Hex, along with a few other hexes, such as ones that affect the skin.

This is all due by midnight, Monday, November 10th.
