Following our visit to 'Wicked' in London last week, the children in Year 5 were challenged to investigate some new merchandise that could be sold to groups of children attending future performances. We investigated how many drops of food colouring should be added to Peppermint Creams in order to make 'Elphaba's Treats'; we trialled different colour combinations whilst making Lava Lamps and then, in the afternoon, we explored the best recipes for making slime!
This term we are considering different aspects of life in Brazil, following our enquiry title of 'Why is Brazil known as the beating heart?'
We will become 'experts' in different aspects of Brazilian life and culture and look forward to sharing some of our learning at the end of our unit through our Great Exhibition family learning session.
