We looked at the book Room on the Broom, by Julia Donaldson for World Book Day. We had great fun designing our own magic broomsticks and imagining the far-away places it would take us!
In the afternoon we helped the Witch out with a problem….she was scared that the evil dragon was going to come and eat her so we investigated different “substances” and discussed which would be the best to trap the dragon. We decided that the gloopy cornflour and water mixture would be the best as the dragon would sink in it.
Today, we carried on with our work. The Year 1 children wrote their own version of the story, adding details of the broomsticks they designed. This afternoon we borrowed Noah and Elijah from Orchid class and had a wand making lesson.
Watch out everyone…we are now armed with magic wands…who knows what might happen….!
