4 1

We have learnt about some of the real people who lived in castles, but many exciting fiction stories also take place in these buildings, including tales of witches, wizards, potions and spells.

In our maths lessons, Year 1 have been learning about capacity and have been practising estimating and measuring the capacity of different containers. The children have been following a magic spell recipe in which they had to read and measure different capacities to ensure they added the correct amount of each magical liquid.

The children were very good at accurately reading the scales on measuring containers and were incredibly excited by the different gruesome ingredients they needed to measure for their recipe. These included Frog’s Breath and Inky Slime. The children have been excited to see if their spells actually work!!!
