Bottom-ranked school shoots to top after introducing Harry Potter-themed curriculum
[link to www.dailymail.co.uk]
A primary school has been praised as "outstanding" in an official government report after introducing Harry Potter-themed lessons, it has been revealed.

The fictional young wizard created by J K Rowling has helped standards at Robert Mellors Primary and Nursery in Arnold, Nottinghamshire, rise dramatically after pupils picked him to be the inspiration for all their classes.

This term has seen the seven to 11 year olds learning subtraction with the help of a Potter-esque "spell", writing their own plays based on the best-selling books and even keeping fit by pretending to get on and off imaginary broomsticks.
Year classes have been named Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin, after the school houses at Hogwarts, the wizards' school attended by Harry in the novels and hit movies.

The children wave wands as they join in the fun of learning and staff have got in the spirit of things by donning wigs and costumes.


So enthralled are the pupils by their lessons that behaviour in class has improved as well as their results shooting up.

The school, in a deprived area, has jumped from the bottom 25 per cent of schools nationally to just outside the top 5 per cent over the last three years after deciding to let pupils pick a theme for the curriculum each term.

Previous themes have included the Titanic, Africa and Princes and Princesses.

During the most recent visit from Ofsted, the inspector witnessed a maths lesson where the children were motivated to learn about subtraction by pretending that it is a magic formula created by Harry Potter.

Pupils were not allowed to answer questions without first saying a spell - "numerus subtracticus", which they devised themselves.

The official report describes achievement at the school as "outstanding".

wow, I love this idea. Instead of boring the kids to tears with the Old school Marm drooling on and on in her monotonous voice, they are allowed and encouraged to let their imaginations flourish

Bravo
