Pottermore & All Things Harry Potter 

Anyone who is a fan of all things Harry Potter will of heard of Pottermore, a site set up by J K Rowling herself, to keep fans up to date with all things Potter. This site allows you to do lots of fun things to make you feel like your having your very own Harry Potter experience. Such as being sorted by the sorting hat into your schoolhouse. 

The sorting hat is introduced in the first book and each book afterwards. At the start of each school year at Hogwarts, the sorting hat sings a song, full of knowledge and wisdom, even at times warning students of dangerous times ahead. The sorting hat is then placed on each students head and the students are then sorted into one of four school houses.
  • Gryffindor 
  • Slytherin
  • Hufflepuff
  • Ravenclaw
