Amy Giacomelli painting

We have been mixing to make a range of colours for our Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory painting inspired by the work of Amy Giacomelli.

Making Chocolate

We really enjoyed learning about Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, especially when we were able to create our own Wonka chocolate bars.
We used either milk or white chocolate and then added a choice of marshmallows, oreos or golden crunch sprinkles, they all looked delicious!

The Twits Drama

The children used brilliant facial expressions and actions when using drama to retell the Twits playing pranks on each other. Some even found some props to aid their acting!

Exploring with magnets

We had a great time exploring our classroom and our school grounds with magnets. We found many magnetic objects!

magnets- attract and repel

We split ourselves into red and blue to represent the north (red) and south (blue) poles of bar magnets. We then acted out the north and south poles attracting and north and north and south and south repelling each other.

Roald Dahl Day- making potions

For Roald Dahl day we had a great time making colour changing potions with cabbage water, bicarbonate of soda and white vinegar. We then went on a hunt in the school grounds to find different seeds, leaves, feathers as well as sequins, glitter and a squirt of a tomato to add to our potions. We had great team work and really enjoyed reading George's Marvellous Medicine!
