After lunch the children did some potion making with the magical Ms Murfin! They had to follow the recipe to make sure their potion was the most deadly one!

We had lots of visitors in the day and they all commented on how busy and how much fun the children were obviously having while taking part in these activities. We hope to have many more productive days like this one in the next half term!
