Year 3 Roald Dahl Day- Making Potions

Year 3 have been learning all about Roald Dahl for their topic this term and were really looking forward to Roald Dahl day. We focused on George’s Marvellous Medicine and really enjoyed reading the story throughout the day, especially the part where George gave grandma the medicine! We had a great time making colour changing potions with cabbage water, bicarbonate of soda and white vinegar. It was amazing how the colours changed depending on whether we put vinegar or bicarbonate of soda in first and loved watching our potions fizz.

We then went on a hunt in the school grounds to find different seeds, leaves and feathers to add to our potions and collected sticks to stir with. We also added sequins, glitter and a squirt of a tomato to our potions. We had great team work and really enjoyed making our own marvellous medicine!
