Transcript of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter
Welcome to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! You lucky muggles will be given the chance to learn all about our world today. From boarding the Hogwarts Express to learning about magical creatures. So get ready for a once in a lifetime chance. Enjoy!
A Hogwarts Acceptance Letter
Equipment Necessary
Diagon Alley
Diagon Alley is a place where wizards can stock up on supplies and find everything they need for everyday life and more. There are many shops in Diagon Alley, such as, Flourish and Blotts for all your book needs, Potage's Cauldron Shop, the Apothecary for potion ingredients, Madam Malkin's for high quality robes, Quality Quidditch Supplies, Wiseacre's Wizarding Equipment and Eeylops Owl Emporium & Magical Menagerie for a lovable and magical pet. And we can't forget Ollivander's- Makers of Fine Wands since
382 BC.
Wands come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Although, you do not get to choose your wand. In fact, your wand chooses you. There are three main cores that Garrick Ollivander uses for his wands although there are various others that can be used. There is dragon heartstring, unicorn tail hair and pheonix feather. Others include veela hair, thestral tail hair and kelpie mane. There are many types of wood such as ash, holly, vine, hawthorn, acacia, beech and a lot more. There are also qualities that come with wands such as inflexible, supple, brittle, swishy. At times they are made to suit the owner. My wand has a dragon heartstring core, is made of ash and is loyal. What would yours be?
How to Get to Hogwarts
Now, some of you may not know how to get there, but, it's actually become quite famous within you muggles. It is, of course, Platform 9 3/4 at King's Cross Station. Turns out you have even become a helpful lot for once and actually put up a sign for young witches and wizards! Anyway, to get to platform nine and three quarters, you have to run straight through the wall between platform 9 and platform 10. Yes it may seem completely ridiculous but don't hesitate. Maybe even get a running start if you're nervous! It's definetly worth it, and you'll know when you see the beautiful, scarlet Hogwarts Express. It's an amazing ride to get to Hogwarts. You'll go through fields of cows and sheep, woods, twisting rivers and dark green hills. You just have to choose a compartment and enjoy!
Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry
Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is located in an unknown part of Britain, well, unknown to you muggles, anyway. It is protected by a very powerful muggle-repellent charms. So, you can't see or enter it. To you it just looks like very dangerous ruins with a keep-away warning sign. Hogwarts was created by four founders, Godric Gryffindor, Rowena Ravenclaw, Salazar Slytherin and Helga Hufflepuff. After you arrive by the Hogwarts Express, if you're a first year, you go by boats across the magnificent lake. If you are one of the years above that you go on thestral-pulled carriages, or self-moving carriages to some. After you have entered Hogwarts through the front gates you will be led to the Entrance Hall and through to the Great Hall, this is where you will be eating the Start of Term feast. Enjoy! Now, if you are a first year, you will be kept waiting in the Entrance Hall. This is for a very good reason... The Sorting Ceremony!

The sorting ceremony will take place in the Great Hall. Soon, you will meet the Transfiguration teacher, Professor McGonagall, she will explain to you this. You have to get in a line, the order does not matter and when you are inside, you will see a torn and dirty hat on a stool. The hat will sing an annual Sorting song and then,your names will be called in alphabetical order, and when it is your turn, you will put the hat on and it will announce the house you have been sorted into.
The Sorting Song of 1991
The Houses of Hogwarts
There are four houses in total in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. There is Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Slytherin and Hufflepuff. These four houses are named after the founders. Each of the founders valued different attributes the most, therefore they created houses, so they could teach students with valuable characteristics. Helga Hufflepuff valued hard work, patience, loyalty and fair play. Salazar Slytherin sought for students who were cunning, ambitious and resourceful. Rowena Ravenclaw believed in wit, learning and wisdom. Godric Gryffindor saw courage, chivalry and determination as traits to value.

The phoenix is a large swan-sized, scarlet bird with red and gold plumage, along with a golden beak and talons, black eyes, and a tail as long as a peacock's. Its scarlet feathers glow faintly in darkness, while its golden tail feathers are hot to the touch. As phoenixes approach their Burning Day their eyes become dull and their feathers start to fall out. Then the bird suddenly bursts into flames only to rise from the ashes shortly after. In a number of days, they grow back to full size. Hence, they are practically immortal.
Dragons are giant winged, fire-breathing reptiles. Widely regarded as terrifying yet awe-inspiring, they can be found all over the world. Able to fly and breathe fire through their nostrils, they are one of the most dangerous and hardest to conceal creatures in the wizarding world. The Ministry of Magic classifies them as XXXXX, the most dangerous type of animals. Despite how dangerous they are, there are people who are trained to work with them, called dragon keepers, or dragonologists.
The Goblet of Fire is the "impartial judge" for the Triwizard Tournament who chooses which students will represent their respective schools. After the students have finished placing their name in Goblet, the Goblet then chooses one student from each school by spitting out their name in a rush of red flames. Once chosen, the participants are subject to a binding magical contract in which they can not back out of the tournament.
The Triwizard Tournament is a magical contest held between the three largest wizarding schools of Europe: Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Durmstrang Institute, and Beauxbatons Academy of Magic, each school being represented by one Champion. Selected Champions compete in three tasks - traditionally judged by the Headmasters or Headmistresses of the competing schools - designed to test magical ability, intelligence and courage. Champions compete for the honour and glory of winning the Tournament and for the Triwizard Cup and a monetary prize.
The Philosopher's Stone was a man-made, blood-red stone with magical properties. It could be used to create the Elixir of Life, which extended the drinker's lifespan, as well as transform any metal into pure gold.
The Chamber of Secrets was created under the dungeons of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry during Medieval times by Salazar Slytherin, who disagreed with the other Hogwarts founders on the merits of blood purity. The Chamber of Secrets was home to an ancient Basilisk, which, according to legend, was intended to be used to purge the area of Muggle-born students. The Chamber is flanked with towering pillars entwined with carved wood, and a tall statue of Salazar Slytherin is at the far end. The basilisk rests within the mouth of the statue, possibly symbolizing Salazar Slytherin's ability to speak Parseltongue.
The Deathly Hallows are three highly powerful magical objects supposedly created by Death and given to each of three brothers in the Peverell family. They consisted of the Elder Wand, an immensely powerful wand that was considered undefeatable; the Resurrection Stone, a stone which could summon the spirits of the dead, and the Cloak of Invisibility, which, as its name suggests, renders the user completely invisible. According to legend, he who possesses these three artefacts would become the Master of Death.
