JK Rowling Has Launched 'Harry Potter' Classes

JK Rowling Has Launched 'Harry Potter' Classes

With kids across the country staying at home due to the coronavirus outbreak, parents and teachers are constantly looking for new ways to keep them both educated and entertained.

And now, JK Rowling has launched online Harry Potter classes to help keep kids busy during lockdown.

'Harry Potter at Home' is an online hub filled with activities and resources for kids to enjoy while they're off school.

Taking to Twitter to announce the launch yesterday, Rowling wrote: "Parents, teachers and carers working to keep children amused and interested while we're on lockdown might need a bit of magic, so I'm delighted to launch harrypotterathome.com."

The incredible resource will 'bring Hogwarts to you' via a series of puzzles, activities and reading materials.

"You'll find all the latest magical treats to keep you occupied," the website reads.

"Including special contributions from Bloomsbury and Scholastic, nifty magic craft videos (teach your friends how to draw a Niffler!), fun articles, quizzes, puzzles and plenty more for first-time readers, as well as those already familiar with the wizarding world.

"We're casting a Banishing Charm on boredom!"

Other activities include discovering your Hogwarts house, as well as having access to the Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone audio book, thanks to Audible.
