That’s a lot of bookwork!

The First Years spent a full two months studying theory in Charms class before first attempting to cast a spell. They were given a feather to Levitate (Wingardium Leviosa) in their class on Halloween, which is the end of October. All that bookwork paid off, however. Ron was able to generalize from what he’d learnt and cast the spell later that evening under very stressful conditions to levitate a troll’s club, even though the spell seems to be specifically worded for feathers (“wing”).
