Our Fir Cones Pre-School KG class have had a wonderful week completing activities based on ‘Room on the Broom’ by Julia Donaldson. The children have thoroughly enjoyed this book and have made magical wands, acted out the story in their PE lessons, and have cut out and drawn the characters to build their own story boards.
The highlight was receiving a letter from the witch asking if they would be kind enough to try out a new spell for her. The children experimented by adding glitter, soap, bicarbonate of soda and the magic ingredient of vinegar into the cauldron. They excitedly watched the bubbling mixture they had made using the magic words Ziggy Zaggy Zoo! After this they have written a letter back to the witch to let her know the details of the recipe and to tell her how it went!
