Harry Potter characters and their links to classical (Roman & Greek) mythology

Harry Potter characters and their links to classical (Roman & Greek) mythology

Did you know that most of the names of characters and magical creatures in the Harry Potter series have roots in classical mythology and Latin and/or Ancient Greek? Do your students love Harry Potter? This is a ready to use, editable Powerpoint presentation with slides of 24 different characters and creatures from the Harry Potter series, where possible with images from the movie. In the notes for each slide you will find the description of that slide: the connection between that specific Harry Potter character and Latin or Ancient Greek language and/or mythology. Let the students recognise the characters and teach them about the links with the classics, to let them discover once again that the classics really are all around us, if only we learn to see them!

PRIMARY LATIN - NUMBERS & ROMAN NUMERALS 1-20 POSTERS / FLASHCARDS

These LATIN numbers and ROMAN NUMERALS display posters create a fabulous LATIN feel to your classroom. Giving your learning environment LATIN ’look’ also promotes LATIN as a ’real’ language, featuring in the everyday life of the school. The posters introduce learners to NUMBERS 1-20 in LATIN from the very beginning of their learning, and they are able to familiarise themselves with both the ‘look’ of LATIN words, and how they are represented in the written form. Additionally, they provide an opportunity to engage with ROMAN NUMERALS, which is also great for some cross-curricular activities with maths! I've also included a B&W version if you prefer not to print in colour. The resource consists of two non-editable files; please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the resource is copyright and for single teacher/purchaser use only. GRATIA PLENA!
