Inspired by the book 'Room on the Broom', Playgroup made their own magic potion.

Magic Potions in Playgroup!

Report and photos from Clare Ryan

For the last few weeks, Playgroup have enjoyed reading the book 'Room on the Broom' which features, as its main character, a very friendly witch. To celebrate their wonderful work which has included some fantastic writing, pictures and maths work, the children made a magic potion on Thursday 7th May 2020. Obviously, magic wands were needed first so the children decorated their own! This was followed by writing magic spells before moving outside for the magic potions!

The children were fascinated to watch the reactions involved in mixing vinegar, bicarbonate of soda, bubble bath, food colouring and glitter! The magic potion bubbled as the children waved their wands and said their magic words! They really enjoyed the chance for practical learning (which is very important for young children) and had fun making predictions and observations about their potion!
