Differentiated KS2 Harry Potter Capacity Lesson with Dumbledore Video

The original resource and idea came from the following tes member so please check that our first! This is meant to be an addition to that lesson: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/capacity-magic-potions-empty-measuring-jug-6189506 I have used the same potions and ingredient names as the original resource (I changed some of the measurements slightly to suit my Year 3 class) and added on some other elements. The potion labels from the original resource wouldn't print on my computer properly so I've made a version of the labels that is as close as I could get them to the original. What I have made myself are letters from Hogwarts which can be aged with teabags and tied with string **Tailor them to your school/class. 5 differentiated maths riddles which can also be teabag dyed and tied with string which I had the secretary drop-off during the lesson saying an owl had just dropped them outside the office. **Again edit them to suit your class I also made a video using the photospeak app (a great idea from a colleague of mine) so that it seems like Dumbledore is talking to the class (I've tried to cut-out where he says "Miss Wilson" so that it can be used more generally and have uploaded the more general video to Youtube). It does skip where I've cut the video so you may want to make your own but if short for time this version should do. If your class is not Year 3 simply forward past the "greeting Year 3" bit to where it says "I have heard that you are a very bright bunch of witches and wizards and I need your help." Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFyn8aIG8nQ&feature=youtu.be You can also download the video from this post. I also made top secret folders to put the potions inside (top secret clipart included) and used fishing wire to hang Hogwarts letters from the ceiling (Hogwarts letters clipart included). And printed a Platform 9 3/4 sign on A3 paper and laminated for our door (included). Liquid ink and feathers found at HobbyCraft. Please check out my Harry Potter Grammar Mystery here as the two lessons would tie-in together nicely: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/ks2-differentiated-harry-potter-grammar-mystery-11732472
