Year 1 – Matilda Magic Potions

This week at Forest School Matilda class found some tiny doors in the woods. I wonder who might live here?


This inspired our magic potion making and the children set to work using magical ingredients sourced and supplied by Mrs Read such as ‘rays of sunshine’, ‘lizards snot’ and ‘beetle juice’, and mixed these with materials found in the woodland.

Maisie and Charlotte made a magic healing potion which they spread on the branches of a fallen tree.

Lili-Mae showed me a large pot of ingredients which she made with her friends. This magical mixture was ‘teachers pudding’ containing mud, sticks, leaves, and mermaid tears.

What magical mixture would you make and which ingredients would you use?
