Rae was waiting by the Entrance Hall for her students to arrive. She had set up today's lesson and was waiting for her students to arrive so she could take them down, a sense of excitement taking root. She didn't have an extraordinary lesson planned for today, she always kept them for the older years as something to look forward to, but hoped that it would at least intrigued her students.
After a significant about of students arrived she went through a register, ensuring all students were present before offering a warm smile. "Welcome, Students. Today we will be looking at Fairies, in this particular case, forest fairies. If you'd follow me we shall make our way to where a group of them live." With that said she started to make her way across the grounds and towards the small woodland area where the fairies resided.
"Now fairies are vain, excruciatingly so, which means a good way to get them to leave their homes is to compliment them or to hold something up that will show their reflection." She moved towards one of the trees with a mirror, holding it up and waiting.
It took a few minutes and just as she heard some chattering behind her, out came a small human-like creature with large insect-like wings that were multicoloured. It hopped out of the tree trunk and onto Rae's palm, admiring itself in the mirror that was being held in her other hand.
"This is a fairy, aren't they pretty." She made sure to boost the fairies ego to ensure she stayed on her palm. "And your task today, which I assume will be easy, is to persuade a fairy to come out from their homes in order for you to sketch them." She gave a soft coo to the fairy who was bored with their reflection and had flown up to sit on Rae's shoulder as it looked over the students appraisingly.
"You should have a sketchbook with you, it was part of your book list, and a quill. Try and get a quick sketch of the fairies. Once that is done, observe them and jot down notes. This can be how they differ from fairy to fairy or what you think they would eat." She looked around at her students, hoping she hadn't overwhelmed them with tasks.
