How old are they?

Harry Potter character names?
Or rather well known book characters?
Local well known landmarks or town names?
Local well known/famous people?

How old are they?

How about Harry, Hagrid, Hermoine, Ron, Dumbledore etc?

Capital cities?

Types of bird?

They're too old for types of dinosaur, aren't they?

motherinferior Tue 19-Jul-05 21:19:05

Jurassic group, Cretaceous group, etc?

Or types of ape/evolutionary stages? That could be quite fun. If possibly overly diverting.

nerdgirl Tue 19-Jul-05 21:28:33

Lord of the Rings - elves, goblins, wizards, hobbits, humans etc?

bee3 Tue 19-Jul-05 21:43:04

Authors - Fines, Dahls, Wilsons, Blumes, Livelys?

Ancient civilisations - Romans, Egyptians, Greeks, Aztecs?

Types of poetry - acrostics, riddles, haikus, sonnets?

I know a friend who has 'grammar/punctuation' names - apostrophes, semi-colons, paragraphs, commas etc....

Ooh, I like this thread can anyone remind me of the names of the houses in Harry Potter please?

jampots Tue 19-Jul-05 21:55:53

Ravenclaw, Slytherin, Hufflepuff and Griffindor

Aniles Tue 19-Jul-05 21:57:50

Thanks jampot

Can anyone think of a reason not to go with the HP house names for my year 3 literacy groups?

Aniles Tue 19-Jul-05 21:59:03

eg the children all wanting to be in the HP house name and not the 'baddie' one IYSWIM?

jampots Tue 19-Jul-05 23:29:49

our y2 teacher called his higher ability group Slytherin and his lower ability group Griffindor

What about planet names?
Must say, as the names are for literacy groups, i'd go for author names.

Aniles Wed 20-Jul-05 17:36:43

While we're on the subject, has anyone got ay inspiring ideas for names for Y3 numeracy groups?

hana Wed 20-Jul-05 17:42:13

what great names! I teach secondary and don't do the names for groups thing!
