Year 5 are really enjoying our magical and scientific journey through Alchemy Island! Belief has been suspended and our minds truly opened…
After going through a portal, we arrived in the wintry Kingdom of Winterbourne. Inspired by Narnia, we wrote descriptive openers to a fantasy story.
Our journey commenced and we were immediately set a scientific challenge by the Chief Alchemist. Could we clean the contaminated water from the Bottomless Well?
We have developed our geographical skills by studying maps of the island and plotting our route. In addition, we have also tackled mathematical problems based on the island.
Recently we learned all about gold and hope to impress the Chief Alchemist with our non-chronological reports on this fascinating subject.
Before we leave this magical place, we will be designing and making board games based on Alchemy Island and writing a film narrative based on a beautiful film called ‘The Alchemist’s Letter’.
Our classroom display looks beautiful. Take a look at all our wonderful work!
