"Hello, everyone! Please, take a seat. Today we will be revising for our exams!" Professor Carter greeted his class with a smile on his face, looking forward to seeing how well each and every one of them would do in the exams. He didn't want his students to be stressing out on it too much and was eager to make them feel comfortable. "Let's start, shall we? When I ask questions you don't need to raise your hand, just stand up and answer." Landon started to pace around the room with his mug of coffee in hand. "Name 3 essential tools for gardening." The Professor didn't choose anyone because they understood immediately what he had ordered them to do. A student jumped up from their chair and answered, "Forks, Trowels, and Spades."

"Very good! 3 points to your house." Landon nodded once and continued, "What are the 2 types of Spades?" Again, a student from the back of the class stood and said, "Digging and bordering." The Professor, yet again, nodded and smiled at his students. "2 points added to your house!" They were getting the hang of it which made him really confident that he taught them well this year. Landon walked back to the front and faced his students. "Next question: What spell did we use to grow a pumpkin half way until it is ripe?" Another student stood up and answered, "Sementis Medicates."

"Add your house another 1 point!" Landon exclaimed and placed his mug on his work table before clapping his hands together. "If everyone remembers the second lesson, we planted flowering bulbs and with those 6 weeks I have been taking care of them. The flower patch is now thriving and ready to harvest. Follow me outside with your pruning shears and remember to harvest only the one with your name on it." Landon walked outside of greenhouse one, smiling as he looked at his student's plants. None of them looked as though they were going to wither and he was proud of his students for their efforts that semester. "You can start harvesting now and after that you may leave. But make sure to put your pruning shears back inside the greenhouse." He told them and watched as they began to harvest their work.
----------
Assignment: RP the lesson. First, second and third poster please answer one of the questions. For extra credit, RP harvesting the flowers.

Sophie couldn't believe her first semester at Hogwarts was almost coming to an end. There was only one more week until the final exams for the semester and Sophie couldn't help but be nervous. She wondered if the wizarding exams were much different to the exams she used to take at her muggle school. The lessons seemed quite similar however so she was sure this wouldn't be the case. The girl happily followed her classmates out onto the grounds and to her last Herbology class for the year. She would miss taking the class as her own uncle taught it and he seemed much more laid back than some of the other professors. She listened as he began the lesson. He asked them revision questions, but Sophie did not answer them, letting her classmates do that as she wrote down some notes that he hoped would be important for the exams. The class soon ended and Sophie took a deep breath before leaving the room, trying not to let the pressure of exams get to her. After all, she was sure the professor would help her if she had any further questions.

Aonghas was surprised by how quickly the semester had flown past. He was eager to get the opportunity to do well in his exams and of course enjoy the end of year celebrations. All things that would be fun and interesting. But, there was a difficulty lying over his head. Aonghas wanted to go home for christmas, he liked snow and spending time with his family, but he didn’t want to force Rory to take him, especially if Rory then wouldn’t be able to join them. Maybe Bonnie would but he didn’t know where she lived, so he’d need to be taken there first. The hufflepuff knew though that it was important to go home and connect with his family. So he’d figure something out. The boy grabbed the last few bits and pieces he needed and headed out of the door to the classes, he was sure that he would have a productive final week of this first semester.
Aonghas walked into the herbology greenhouse and took his usual spot in the room. The boy’s gaze settled upon the professor at the front of the room as the man got started. They’d be doing a question and answer session it seemed which wasn’t the worst thing ever. He took out his notes and placed them down on the desk in front of him, expecting to just study during this lesson, but it was not that at all. Instead the professor began asking them questions. He looked to the first person who answered the first question and though his mind thought they had to go more in-depth, it was actually clear that they did not need to. He raised his hand for the next question and the one that followed it, and when that was done, he expected the lesson to be over, but instead they went to their bulbs in the flower patch and were able to harvest them. He preferred that aspect of the lesson so much more than the questions. With that done the lesson was brought to an end and he was able to pack up his stuff and leave the room.

Lars had been nervous about his first semester at Hogwarts before it began, but now that it was nearly over he had to admit it really hadn't been so bad. Most of his classes had been interesting, even if he had often spent his time doodling in his notes, he had still picked up a lot. He was a little nervous about the exams, but Fleur had reassured him that they generally weren't too bad. He wasn't too nervous about Herbology, because it was his favorite subject and he felt like he had remembered quite a bit from the lessons. He always loved being in the greenhouse, and today was no exception. Lars had a smile on his face as he made his way to his seat.

Today's lesson was a nice recap for the exams, they would be taking a quiz to go over some of the things they had learned today. Lars wasn't very confident, so when the first question was asked he didn't get up even though he knew the answer. By the second one, he was considering it, and by the third he finally got to his feet. "Sementis Medicates." He said timidly. He smiled when he got a point for his answer, and quickly took a seat again. Then they were going to look at the flowers they had planted during the second lesson. Lars followed the professor outside, got some shears and harvested his flower. He was happy about it, and planned to use it in his art in some way. When they were dismissed, Lars headed back to the castle.
