Years 3 and 4 Curriculum Overview
Poisonous potions, aromatic brews, vapour or a sticky goo… Welcome to the amazing world of potions!
By reding an extract from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in English, we’ll learn all about mysterious potions, and write a safety label for Alice’s bottle. In science, we will sort everyday items into solids, liquids and gases. Using our investigation skills we’ll explore capacity and the properties of liquids.
We’ll also design fabulous bottles for magical potions. Becoming super scientists, we’ll investigate chemical reactions and states of matter. We’ll research the use of anaesthetic and learn what life was like without it!
We’ll write spells with magical, strange or gruesome effects – what ingredients will we use? It will be great fun to make chocolate hearts and bath bombs! At the end of our journey, we’ll invite you to join us at a tea party to share our learning.
