The Reception children have been learning about the author Julia Donaldson. Room on the Broom is one of her many books, which tells a story about a witch who made a magic spell to make her broom fly. The children put on their science coats and goggles to make their own explosions using liquids and powders. They made predictions and discussed what they saw as the potions fizzed and bubbled. The children also made magic potions in the playground using natural objects as a stimulus to their creative writing, which involved lots of slimy and magical things.
