Review:MargaretLane says:
Yay, we get to see his school.

And I'm intrigued by the mentions of playrooms and common rooms. Are those things common in British primary schools or is it just because he's attending a special school? We had lunch and break either in the yard or in our classrooms or when we were 8 or younger, in the hall/gym.

I can't remember if we learnt about the Romans in primary school or not. I don't think so. I think we focused on Ireland when studying that era.

That part about calling the teacher by the Latin for teacher reminds me of when we started learning French in 4th class (so at 9/10 years old) and had to refer to our French teach as Madame Murphy. And of course, from Junior Infants, a lot of classroom instructions were given in Irish.

*laughs* It's SO like Ron to make an excuse. Somehow I can't imagine him being a fan of classical music.

*laughs at him commenting that he can't see anyway* It's a funny answer, even if it is rather sad too.

The harp is like our national symbol. It's on all Government correspondence and on our coins and all. So the final line of the chapter seems so weird to me; that he doesn't know what a harp looks like. Hermione should find an Irish euro coin, so he can feel the shape of a harp. *nods*

Sorry if this review isn't greatly detailed, but I don't know much about music, so haven't much to say.

Author's Response: Hello!

No, the playroom/common room thing isn't normal for British primary schools. I don't know much about special schools (although I've tried to research) but I figured it made sense, for the sake of looking after them (many have other accompanying disorders) and also as they have very small classes. Private schools do have common rooms for all groups, I think, and that's where the idea came from, but yes it's because it's a special school.

As we were occupied by the Romans, we do study it here!

A harp is something you're likely to see pictures of even if it's not your national symbol, but of course pictures aren't any use to him. No-one's ever had a reason to describe one to him, so of course he doesn't know what they look like! It's just not something that's ever been relevant before.

Plenty of detail! You can't write a review the length of the chapter for every single chapter... ;) Thanks again!
