PostSubject: Defence Against the Dark Arts - Lesson Three (All Years)   Sat Nov 01, 2014 11:10 am

Seeing as it was the end of the year, Jake had planned one big lesson for the end of term. Pulling together everything he'd taught, and possibly bringing in work from other subjects. He hoped that the students were going to enjoy themselves, but it remained to be seen. March was in the air by now, and Jake was very close to completing the permanent move to England with Marilyn, so he was in high spirits.

Which showed in the smile on his lips that day as he stood in the grounds waiting for his students to turn up. Behind him stood a huge display of bushes, so large in fact you couldn't see more than the entrance behind Jake to the left. But, that was the plan.

Waiting for students, Jake went through the plan in his head, Marilyn had said it sounded good, a challenge, he only had to hope his class were under the same impressions as he was today.

The note telling the students that their final lesson of the year was to be held in the grounds made Brooke more than curious for the class. The ground was still damp from the rain that usually poured in random intervals during the early start of Spring, but for now, the skies were surprisingly clear, although there was a slight chill in the air; lingering remains of Winter had Brooke dressed in an Autumn coat and boots instead of sandals. Still, the fresh air was a good change from the four walls of a classroom, and she enjoyed the quiet sploshes her feet made with every step towards the meeting place.

As she approached the area, she noticed at once the tall hedges that stood behind her Professor, almost as though guarding something, and a tingle of excitement ran up her spine. The last DADA lesson conducted outside had been a memorable one, what with having to spend a night in the Forbidden Forest and all that.

"Good morning, Jake," she greeted with a grin, trying to peer around or over the bushes and get a glimpse of what lay beyond it rather unsuccessfully. "What are we going to be doing?" she asked instead, looking around and wondering when the other students would get there. It was going to be an interesting lesson, that much she already knew.

Tristan had thoroughly enjoyed the last time the DADA class held an outdoor lesson, and when the information came of the venue change, he was more than happy with the announcement. As he made his way down to the grounds, he briefly wondered what they were going to do. Nearing the location, he spotted a flash of red hair against the green of the bushes that formed a barrier behind Jake. It took him a moment to remember who it was; Brooke's recent change of looks was vastly different than her previous appearance, which only made it harder for her friends and family.

Breaking into a slight jog, he went straight over, standing next to his sister. "Morning, Pr- Jake," he greeted, correcting himself just as the formal term slipped out.

Teasingly, to Brooke, he continued, "A coat in this lovely weather? Surely you're not cold?!" She replied with a playful shove, and he grinned back at her as they waited for more students to arrive.

The wet, dreary weather was something Chara absolutely despised. Why the early days of spring had to be so gloomy when the others were filled with sun and the blooming flowers, she never understood. Wearing a light blue quilted jacket, she carefully made her way down to the grounds, making sure not to step in any puddles along the way. What were use of pathways if nobody bothered to keep them dry? she scoffed mentally as she walked around yet another pool of rain water. She wasn't too worried about dirt getting on her jacket - the price at which it was obtained was not simply a way to spend money: it was enchanted so as to remain dry and spotless no matter what the owner did. This was partly the reason she favoured this particular piece of clothing, the other simply being that it was beautifully made and comfortable to wear.

There were only two other students there; a Gryffindor prefect she had seen doing rounds a few times and a much younger Slytherin she did not recognize. They seemed to know each other pretty well, judging the way they were softly chatting with each other. She smiled a polite smile at their Professor, adding a "Good morning," before switching her attention to the large bushes. It was obvious that whatever they were going to be doing today either involved those - which she doubted; this was not Herbology - or lay behind them. She almost wrinkled her nose in distaste, figuring that whatever that days lesson was, it would be messy, but she stopped herself in time; wrinkling ones nose was not something that a lady did, for it only made her look unpleasant. At least, that was what her tutor always said, and she knew no better than to listen. After all, the tutors were hired for a reason.

The note that they would be working outside today had been one that had brought a frown to Josh's features. What could the professor possibly want them to be doing outside that couldn't be done in the classroom? Deciding better than to ask questions, Josh had made his way outside, looking little and less enthused with the situation.

A few students were already there, two of which meant little and less, and the third wasn't much better. He knew of the Fletcher family, but they didn't associate with one another. Still, the Hufflepuff was at least a Pureblood, which was more than most could boast about.

"Professor." Josh acknowledged, staying away from the other students for the most part and simply waiting for more people to arrive.

With the note that they were going to be working outside, Alexander felt a little relieved. Classrooms were always stuffy to him, he preferred the outdoors, exploring. Though, of course, he was quite sure that what they were going to be doing was not going to have anything to do with exploring. Wrapped up in his winter coat still, the Cavendish heir moved out in to the grounds, not worrying over the puddles left from the snow as he moved to the group that was already building.

He noted Chara early on, and made his way to stand next to the witch. She was one of only a few people he knew in the school, well, except the Murray heir, whom he nodded toward. "Morning, Chara." He greeted the witch beside him, before turning his attention to the professor. "Good morning, Professor Newbury." He added, not overly keen on the first name use of the professor. He probably wouldn't comply to those names in the time the professor was here, if he was honest.

"Any ideas what we're doing?" He asked Chara, rubbing his hands together to keep them warm.

Victoria had been very excited when she'd received the note in regards to Defence Against the Dark Arts. Her brother was very good at his job, so she knew that whatever he had planned was going to be good. Skipping down to the meet point, Victoria could see the vast amount of hedges from quite a distance away and naturally her intrigue was growing with the information before her.

When the witch had made it to the group, she smiled to everyone there, making her way over to the Walters' siblings whom she knew. "Hi!" She greeted both of them, smiling at their antics. "Morning, Jake!" She greeted the professor with a warmer smile. She was intrigued to know what they would be doing, but she didn't ask, Jake would explain when people were here.

Bea walked down to the grounds with a huge smile on her face. She hated being cooped up in the castle, especially now that the weather had been getting warmer and the sun was actually out. The girl had made particular effort that day, she applied her make up meticulously, making her eyelids beautifully blue and her lips red as blood. It was a gorgeous day and Bea figured she could look gorgeous as well.

"Hi, Jake!" she greeted the Professor and smiled at everyone. Victoria was there, but she was standing with some friends, so Bea only waved to her and then stood by herself, waiting for class to begin. She didn't mind being by herself, the day was too nice to be spoiled by that.

The note that they were going to be outside for the next lesson made Gina a little happier. Being outside for the lesson would be more than freeing to the Hufflepuff as she moved outside. Still wrapped up from the winter, Gina could see a group of students already huddled around.

And it looked like they were mixing the classes up this time.

Interesting.

Moving up to the group, Gina noted a very familiar face, so she made a beeline towards the witch in question. "Morning." Gina greeted the Ravenclaw beside her with a warm smile, correcting her glasses before looking to the professor and saying hi to him too. Gina didn't know what they would be doing, but for once she was glad she'd rolled out of bed. A class with Beatrice was definitely worth rolling out of bed for.

Finley was an indoor person. He wasn't very good at being outdoors. But he'd decided to give this class a shot. He'd been in the back of almost every class this year, simply staying out of the way, but now he knew he should probably participate a little bit more.

The trouble was, he was very, very shy.

Moving out in to the grounds, splashing in the puddles on his way out, Finn soon saw the group of people gathering. Well... lots of people. Big. People. Shuffling in to an empty space quite close to the professor, Finley looked up at the man before realising that the man was an ex-Quidditch player. Finn's mouth opened in to a small O, he may be new to the Wizarding world, but he had learnt quickly, and Jake Newbury was huge in this world.

"H-hi professor!" Finn managed, still looking up at the man in awe. This. Was. Awesome.

Cassidy was looking forward to this class, solely due to the fact that it combined DADA with the outdoors. And because it wasn't just some predictable class, but rather something different to the norm. She made her way to the grounds, over where she saw some of the students gathering for class "Morning Jake," she grinned her usual cheerful grin and waited for the lesson to start.

It was a beautiful, clear day, and Lucy was thoroughly happy. The best part was that she'd be spending a formidable lesson outside. She made her way leisurely to the gathering of students, a light breeze gently ruffling her curly blonde hair, and the sun warm on her face. She reached the class "Good morning Jake," she greeted happily and waited for class to start.

Natasha couldn't think of why they would have a DADA lesson outside. Not that she was at all opposed to it, just curious as to the reasoning. Although, she much preferred inside work. She walked out of the castle, and down to the place she was told the class was meeting "Morning Jake," she greeted softly, placing her book bag on the ground beside her, waiting for class to commence.

Violet preferred the indoors, with only small exceptions to her preference. Class was not an exception to that. She certainly preferred indoor classes as opposed to outside ones. Outside generally meant having to move around a lot, looking for things or whatever it was teachers thought was 'fun'. Regardless, she walked to class, with the small hope that it would be worth her while to rock up. She gave Jake a small nodded, crossing her arms as she waited to start.

Running a little behind everyone else Louise finally made it to the spot that the note had told her to go to. She stayed near the back to avoid immediate detection and looked over the shoulders of some of the students to see the huge hedges, seemed like today was going to be a sort of challenge. Oh fun, just as long as it didn't involve swimming she'd gladly face anything else...well maybe not everything else. She sighed and found a spot to stand where she could see and hear just fine, and gave a small smile of greeting to the professor.

Rhian jogged down to the grounds, worried she'd be late. She was already a bit behind schedule when she reached the usual classroom, so it was highly likely. While Jake was a bit more lenient on tardiness, she still didn't like the impression she gave. She was never close to the Quidditch star, but they we both Belladonna's at one time, and she respected him as a professor.

Finding the group, her eyes widened at the hedge. There was a clear entrance between two end points, and she had to wonder what they'd be doing beyond that point. She'd read in the history of Hogwarts that there used to be tournaments with other schools. One year had included some sort of maze, though she wondered how similar this could be.

Not seeing Tess around, she made her way through the crowd. Many were older years, but she noticed a particularly short Ravenclaw. A dark-haired boy that looked slightly overwhelmed. Stepping up next to him, she smiled down at him, something she wasn't used to being able to do.

"Hi," she whispered. "Ready to have some fun?" With a small wink at the boy, she looked up at Jake, sending him a small wave.

Still somewhat apprehensive due to the last class Allegra had let Victoria comfort her into going with less fear, assuring her that Jake wouldn't make them do anything they didn't want to do and that he was there for them. So Allegra had listened and was now standing on the grounds, very close to her friends, with a slightly scared look in her eye.

Not unsimilar to the expression her sister pulled when she felt frightened. But she didn't know that. The sixteen year old simply waited, semi-holding her breath, for the class to start.

Well she was late. Muttering a curse she walked towards the large group already formed and began to look around. It was an all years class, sighing she scooted through people looking for Rhian hoping she could at least have the girl. Every since the friendship had reinstated itself once more she felt a weight off of her, because now she had someone that understood her better than anyone could ever try.

Trying to control her quick breath after the slight jogging she nudged the girl and looked towards her paying attention to the Ravenclaw. Curious, she smiled shyly, while she wasn't very good with people, she figured it wouldn't hurt to try.

Carmen decided to take DADA once again too. She really wasn't that interested about going lessons. She knew that she needed to take lessons here. She soon reached to the grounds were today lesson was held. She saw group of people and she walked where they were now.

Fifth year Ravenclaw she greeted the professor and few others who she knew there. She hoped that lesson will be interesting now. Maybe that can get her thoughts away from that she is all alone. That she anyone in her life and has no home right now. She knows that she needs to find friends and so on who care about her as who she is.

Jake was quite happy with the attendance of his class, and smiling warmly and greeting everyone who arrived, Jake waited for his watch to get to the hour.

"Okay everyone, I think I've kept you waiting long enough!" Jake called, getting everyone's attention. "Today will be something of a challenge, but hopefully a challenge you'll enjoy it no less." He explained.

"You'll be given four tasks to complete, in teams. There is no prize for coming first, but those who finish will have a reward of a surprise at the end of the lesson. If you get in to trouble in the maze, please send up sparks from your wand and I'll come and help you. But please make note, that if you put the sparks up, you will end the task - but only for yourself, not the whole team will be removed so think about your decision wisely."

Jake paused, checking everyone was following. "The groups are as follows, so unless you have questions, you may begin."
