Nursery Highlights - Making Potions


The children all experienced making potions in Forest School.  

They were encouraged to select and carefully count out each ingredient from the list.  They could then enhance the fragrance of their potion by adding spices, such as coriander and cardamom.  They particularly enjoyed crushing the spices using a pestle and mortar. Great delight was had using their imaginations and talking about what their potions could do. We then took this enthusiasm back into the classroom and each child had fun writing about their potion and its powers. These are now proudly displayed in the Nursery 1 classroom.
