    Wonderful resource. I wanted to do something with Harrius Potter and, as another reviewer has said, was delighted to see that someone else has done the hard work! :) I adapted the resource so that the Latin words & meanings go on a leaflet folded into a mini-dictionary, and the effects are all on different clue cards hidden in an envelope - this means that I can reuse the different bits and the pupils simply fill out the grid. Has proved very popular at both KS3 and KS4, so a great hit! (for those wondering the Latin meanings are provided in the word document that you download)
