National Word Day 2018.

On Wednesday 17th October, we celebrated National Word Day. As we are thoroughly enjoying our class novel (Harry Potter), we discovered some of the meanings behind old Latin words that J.K Rowling uses in her books. We used our spelling and English language knowledge to predict what we thought the Latin words meant first, and then their meanings were revealed. Some of these words are common spells in Harry Potter and now that we know what they mean, some are our favourite words!
