Term 1 - Project Overview Potions

Term 1 Week 2


Owl class have become poets this week, creating a variety of poems focusing of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, George’s Marvellous medicine and had great fun creating their very own tongue twisters! They have enjoyed making lots of disgusting rhymes and using their imagination to write lots of humorous poems.   


Within our Potion topic, focusing on the States of Matter in Science, we had a fantastic time this week conducting our own science experiments around the velocity of different liquids. Using a ramp, stop watches and lots of different substances, it was great to see such independence as they worked as a team and led their own fair tests. Also in our topic, we looked at different portrayals of Potions in Art. The children then had discussion about how we can appreciate Art and created their own art work based around a Potions, it was brilliant to see the children express themselves through Art and have an outlet for their creative ideas. 


In P.E the children created their own Gymnastic routines using dynamic movement to find different ways to travel across the mats as a team. Mrs Alexander and I thoroughly enjoyed watching their performances and gave them all a fantastic score of 10! 

Term 1 week 1


Owls have had a fantastic first full week. They have settled in really well coming back to school and are very happy that they have their own classroom back. We have started our new topic of Potions for this term, focusing on the History of medicine this week. The children have really enjoyed exploring herbal remedies and have created their own healing potions from points in History. It was brilliant to see such amazing teamwork when starting our new topic in Gymnastics, focusing this week on balance. It was incredible to see such teamwork when planning and performing their routines to the class.
