Year 3's Potion Lesson!

 

Yesterday evening, as Miss Colbridge was returning to her car, a piece of paper caught her eye, scrunched up amongst the autumn leaves. Upon unfurling the piece of paper, she discovered it was a recipe for a potion to turn a teacher into a worm! Year 3 decided to write their own potion as a class, and this is what they created (do let us know if it works!):

 

Make Your School Bag Fly Potion

Do you want help with your heavy school bag and sports bag? This potion will make them rise up into the air!

Ingredients

6 bees' brains

A pinch of snail slime

1 cup of lizard's teeth

250g autumn leaves - fresh not dried

I cup of pencil shavings

12 peacock feathers

1 litre of pond water with slime

 

What you need to do

  1. First take the bee brains and mix them with the snail slime in a small dish.
  2. Using a pestle and mortar, grind the lizards' teeth into a fine, white powder. Place in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Shred the autumn leaves very finely and gradually add to the tooth powder with a spoon.
  4. Add the pond water and slime and mix very carefully so there are no lumpy bits.
  5. Sprinkle the pencil shavings into the bowl and stir continuously until the green-brown mixture is smooth.
  6. Now pour in the bees' brains and snail slime.
  7. Finally add the peacock eye feathers - one feather at a time. You will notice the mixture starts to shimmer and sparkle
  8. Spread a fine layer of the mixture over your bags etc. and leave to dry. The mixture will dry to a light powder which can then be brushed off easily.

Clap twice and say your name and before your eyes your bag with lift up and follow you! Clap your hands once again and it will fall to the ground.

NOTE: Although the bags do not fly very high, be particularly careful when using on the stairs and outside so other children are not hit by flying bags!
