J.K. Rowling has introduced a new site, Harry Potter at Home, with activities for children, parents, carers and teachers. The new site, www.harrypotterathome.com, brings together content from publishers such as Bloomsbury and Scholastics, opening up the Wizarding World of Harry Potter to those staying at home.
Stories are A Kind of Magic
Harry Potter at Home is the latest initiative from J.K. Rowling and her team. Earlier, they had announced a special, open licence for teachers who wish to read the seven Harry Potter books to their students in virtual read-a-long sessions.
You can also listen to the first Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, free on Audible, along with other audio books.
Harry Potter at Home
Some of the puzzles on Harry Potter at Home include The First Year Harry Potter Quiz, a guide on how to draw a Niffler and a Harry Potter themed wordsearch.
There are also light-reading articles such as a handy guide to reading Harry Potter books for the first time.
According to a page on www.wizardingworld.com, “keep on visiting the page whenever you like. Just like Hogwarts and its staircases, this page will be changing all the time.”
On Twitter, Rowling said, “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.”
