October: the most magical month in FunShine Academy.
The month where FunShine Academy transforms into FeinShun Academy of Witchcraft and Wizardry, in short: our annual Magic School.
The month where our kindies regroup and join one of the four Magical Houses (teams): Whitewood, Coralin, Riddlemere and Dragonhide.
As always, our magical semester started with a Sorting Ceremony, during which the children learnt what team they belonged to.
The very next thing for our young wizards to do was visit a wand shop in order to choose a magic wand; a white/brown/black wood wand for our K1 students, a silver one for the K2s and a golden one for the K3s.
In our Magic School term of 2019, as always, we studied a lot about mythical animals and did a lot of exciting magic quests.
We learnt how to cast a Purificus spell in order to clean water in a tank and to talk with a Headmistress of a Mermaid School, Zelina.
We reviewed a Decodiamus spell, that helped us to transcribe hieroglyphs and ancient Egyptian language used by our school Sphinx into English.
We cast an Illuminatio spell in order to make a beam of magic light to find and read invisible messages left by naughty pixies that took away and hid our park hats!
We talked with fairies and had a magical scavenger hunt for their dust, and made glowing fairy jars to attract them to leave some more of it! To invite even more fairies to our school, we cast an Invitimo spell.
We talked with a friendly dragon momma and went on a quest of rescuing our baby dragon pet, Sparky, a silver dragon egg and some fairy cocoons that were stolen by a wizard thief.
We visited the dungeons of Dwarf Mountains and used a Muffle Puff spell to make ourselves super-quiet in order to not wake a baby Balrog that was guarding a dwarven treasure chest full of crystals.
We had a special lesson in the park, where we cast a Revelio spell to reveal invisible angel feathers!
We went into a Haunted Classroom full of spooks and candy blood and, casting a Recoveriamento spell, rescued Charles who turned into a vampire.
We celebrated a Phoenix Day by putting phoenix ashes outside and chanting a magical song. The very next day the ashes turned into a phoenix egg!
We made a Unicorn Potion that can heal every disease!
We cleaned all bad weeds from our garden and planted some golden acorns that we got from an elven forest!
And, as every year, we studied Ancient Viking Runes and Alchemy!
October might be over but there are still many more exciting adventure that are yet to come for our brave wizards of Feinshun, so stay tuned!
