Poisonous potions, aromatic brews, vapour or a sticky goo. Welcome to the amazing world of potions!
During this topic we will learn all about mysterious potions, sort everyday items into solids, liquids and gases and using our investigation skills we’ll explore capacity and the properties of liquids. We’ll also design fabulous bottles for our own magical potions!
Becoming super scientists, we’ll investigate chemical reactions and states of matter. We’ll research the use of anaesthetic and learn what life was like without it! Find out about herbal remedies and uses. We’ll write spells with magical, strange or gruesome effects – what ingredients will we use? It will be great fun to make chocolate hearts and bath bombs! We’ll also create canvas art on a large scale!
