As part of our topic on Magic, we have been looking at writing recipes and spells in our Literacy.
The first task we did was to look at and review of recipes and spells to look at the similarities and differences between them. We also broke down the layout, headings/subheadings and the style of the writing.
We then wrote our own recipe for a smoothie, which links to our D+T unit of healthy eating. We turned this delicious recipe into a spell afterwards, thinking about what the fruit could represent in our spells (quite often a little gruesome!).
Finally, we wrote up our spells using a quill and some black paint to create our own class spell book. The children reported it being a lot harder then they initially thought!
Please enjoy some photos of our quill writing as well as our D+T.
