Third Years, Lesson Two

Out of all of the lessons Landon was to teach, today's lesson had to be by far the best one. He was so exceptionally excited for it that he dressed in his best muggle clothes and came to class early just so he could place all of the pamphlets he had on each of the desks and make sure everything was perfect in the classroom before leaving. Travelling was always his favourite thing to do. He hoped that this excursion outside of the classroom would teach the students as much as it could. In Landon's opinion, travelling was always good to learn new things and if the children did not listen today then it would be their own fault if they happened to fail their exam.

Student after student, they all eventually came walking in which just made Landon even more excited. He hoped that they would all be on their best behaviour. "Before you ask about the paper and pouch in front, we are taking a field trip to Chelsea Physic Gardens, in the heart of London. The pamphlet explains the rich history of the expansive garden. In the pouch are twenty galleons in there. It is for the fair." Landon quickly began the lesson once everyone had finally made their way inside. "The fair will be to celebrate Winterfest which hopefully will make the trip even better! Leave your bags here and we are leaving by portkey."

Landon led the students past the gates where he had them place their hand on a boot. In moments, they were spiraling through the air and landed on a grassy hill. Landon, who landed on his feet perfectly, looked around first to see if all of his students were alright and then pointed out the lands of Chelsea Physic Gardens. "It was founded back in 1673 by apothecaries. Its vast lands and plants were used as a good tool for teaching their apprentices about their craft. Obviously it's been added onto and has changed owners throughout the centuries."

Along the sprawling gardens there were huge tents set up, filled with merchants selling their wares. Landon turned to his students and warned, "You have two hours here. I will be walking around, making sure no one is up to any trouble. Split up or pair off and go enjoy yourselves." Landon pulled out many enchanted maps for the entire class. He explained, "This is a map of the entire grounds. It has all of us on there, except me of course. You will see a dot with your name on it. In the corner is an hourglass, telling you when to be back at the portkey on the hill back to the castle." With that, Landon departed, heading about his own ways.

The first week of classes back at Hogwarts had gone so quickly for Estella. She was still trying to get her head around what she was learning in each of her classes and didn’t think she had taken enough notes to get her through yet. Classes were always so much pressure for the third year, especially now that she had extra subjects to take, but she hoped that it would relax soon and she would be able to understand the content a little bit better. The Hufflepuff packed everything she needed into her backpack for that day before exiting her dormitory and heading to her first class.

Estella entered the Herbology classroom and took her usual seat within in the room. She expected the professor to lecture them again this time as she knew there would be a lot to cover this year and didn't want to miss out on anything. Instead, the professor was prepared to take them on a field trip and Estella couldn't help but be a little excited about it. It was only the second week of classes and she was already excited about what was ahead. She placed a hand on the portkey when instructed before feeling herself being taken away. They landed in the gardens where there were lots of pretty flowers. She wondered who maintained it as it looked very beautiful. She wondered around when the professor dismissed them and just took her time looking at everything and taking everything in. She wasn't sure why the Professor took them there, but was happy for the opportunity nonetheless. When instructed she headed back to the portkey and was taken back to the castle.

The experience to travel with the portkey, as usual, Ronald tries to walk like our professor does but I'm so young to do that in the landing part location that will be made, but the dizziness was okay now that the first time to a counter a portkey.

When we are in Chelsea Physic Gardens, Ronald sees the garden so expensive and relaxing he doesn't know that they have a big and beautiful garden like this. London. Professor Carter said a brief description of this place so Ronald gran his pen and. piece of paper to take down notes for this beautiful and amazing garden in London City.

Lesson Two was already here and when Rose said the year was going so fast she wasn’t lying. There was so much homework, essays to write and other stuff to do. Maybe she had done it to herself, since she had picked every subject that was currently available. The only one that she hadn’t taken was astronomy, she hated the evening classes and the subject was just incredibly boring. She had thought about taken it for one more year, but couldn’t make herself to look at any more stars and planets. Rose packed her bag for the day and grabbed Edgar from its usual windowsill spot. Then she left the dorm to go to the next lesson of the day.

Rose arrived at the greenhouse and hoped they would learn more about some kind of epic plant. When the Professor explained the lesson Rose got excited as well. She would love to see the Chelsea Physic Garden. Rose retrieved the macrame Edgar holder from her bag and placed him carefully inside. Then she grabbed the pouch of galleons and touched the portkey. It was very beautiful and Rose loved it. She looked at the map and bought some souvenirs to remember this day. When the hourglass was almost up Rose walked back to the group and touched the portkey. Then she packed her back and left, she had enjoyed this little trip.

Emmaline had such a busy week this week. She was completely bogged down with essays and homework assignments for her other classes. She crossed her fingers that Herbology would not join her pile of work as the young Gryffindor girl entered the Greenhouse. Something felt a little odd today though. She noticed small pouches laying in the classroom. Maybe they are seeds and we are planting something again. The young girl thought as she took her normal seat in the classroom, about to unpack her items before the Professor began to speak. He announced that they were going on a field trip today. To London! A smile spread across Emmaline's face. Now that sounded like a fun way to get her mind off her coursework. Plus she had never really been to London before.

The young girl listened to the Professor's instructions as she set her bag down on the Greenhouse floor. They were traveling by portkey, which was always mixed feelings for the young girl. She walked up to the old boot and touched it along with her classmates. She closed her blue eyes and waited for that familiar feeling in her stomach. Her stomach lurched as she felt the portkey pull her to a new location. Her feet hit the ground as she waited a few moments before hoping her eyes. Once she was settled, she dared to look around at where they were now. It was beautiful with tents and flowers. There was so much to see; Emmaline could not wait to get started!

The Professor had a few more words to say before handing them enchanted maps with not only locations but a timer. They would have two hours, which seemed like a lot, but never was with this type of thing. Emmaline did not bother waiting to find someone to walk around with. Instead she went off on her own, exploring. She walked towards the hundreds of marketplace stands first. Emmaline never had much money and to have so much in her procession right now almost felt wrong. She did not know how the school was able to fund this type of money, even though to most it probably did not seem like a lot. She knew she should probably save it, but this was a once in a lifetime trip to London. She knew she had to get something for her sister and hopefully herself as well. I'll save the rest She thought as she went from stand to stand for about an hour. Emmaline finally found a stand with beautiful snowflake necklaces and charm bracelets. She paid for a necklace for herself and a bracelet for River.

She still had an hour left before she had to once more head back to the castle. For the rest of the hour, the young Gryffindor girl looked at some of the flowers that were there. She did not know the types of most of them, luckily there were little signs detailing what she was looking at. Honestly it was a lot to take in with all the winter themed decorations. Emmaline honestly could see herself staying here all day. But sadly the time came to an end as the hourglass was almost empty. Emmaline made her way back to the meeting place waiting only moments for the rest of the third year students. The young girl reached out and touched the portkey again, back at Hogwarts in moments, feeling unsteady. After a few moments taken to compose herself, Emmaline grabbed her bag and left the Greenhouse. She wanted to find River right away and tell her younger sister about her travels.

The semester had well and truly started now, and Ivy knew she had to stay on top of things. She got a lot of letters from her dad, who kept up her study schedule and kept updating it to have her do more and more. It was pretty tiring, but Ivy knew he just wanted the best for her. She tried her best to follow it, though it was a lot.

The girl made her way to the Herbology classroom in the greenhouse outside, taking her seat next to one of the other Gryffindors. The professor started the lesson and told them they were taking a field trip, which was pretty exciting. Ivy listened as the professor told them a bit more about it, then followed the other students to the portkey. The professor told them a bit about the gardens, then told them they had two hours there. Ivy was glad to get the chance to explore and looked at all the different plants. It was nice and relaxing and it actually made her forget about the exams for a bit. She was a bit sad when they had to return to Hogwarts, but headed back to the portkey at the appropriate time.

Arriving for Herbology, Brooke eyed Professor Carter as he busied himself prepping for today's lesson. He seemed very excited and Brooke hoped it didn't mean they were dealing with some weird plant today.

Thankfully, it seemed they had a field trip instead, and Brooke listened as he announced they were traveling to the Chelsea Physic Gardens. That meant they were going to England, which did sound rather exciting to Brooke. She'd only been a few times with her family when she was young, and was excited to travel, even if it meant taking a portkey.

Once they'd arrived, Brooke gazed around and Professor Carter went over some details of the gardens. It was colder than she'd expected, a bit of the shock after the warmth of the last few weeks of the New Zealand Summer. She wrapped her cardigan around her a little tighter, nodding as Professor Carter finished speaking and announced they were free to wander until it was time to return to the school. She stuck with some of her class mates as they walked, observing the various plants and checking her map to make sure she wasn't late. After awhile, Brooke felt like maybe they were wasting their time here, she could be working on much harder homework or spells if she was back at the castle. And her nose was getting cold. Thankfully, it wasn't much longer till they were called back to the portkey and it was time to return to the castle.
