Hello from Mrs Barnes

How are you all? I must say I am really missing you all and can’t wait to see you very soon.

Last week my son Zach and I decided to read the book George’s Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl.  In the story the boy who is called George decides to create his own magical medicine using ingredients from around the family farm.  These included shampoo, floor polish, paint and anything else he could find.  

Whilst in our garden Zach and I decided to make our own potion and filled a water bottle with things such as leaves, mud, twigs, chocolate milkshake, stones, flowers and grass. We even used a long stick to stir it. It smelt like rotten milk and looked like slimy, brown, witch’s brew.

Can you make your own magical medicine?

What can you find to put in it?

What does it smell like?

What does it look like?

Can you use some adjectives to describe it?


I look forward to seeing what you have created.  Email in some pictures and write a few sentences to describe your creation.

See you soon

Mrs Barnes
