Magic Potions


Task 1: Design Your Own Magic Potion


Can you think of any stories, poems or films where you have come across magic potions before? What were they used for? 


Look at the pictures below of a very special magic potion being made...


What do you think the potion could be for?

What ingredients do you think might have been used? 

If you could make your own magic potion, what would it do?


See in the dark? 

Go back in time? 

Become invisible? 

There are so many possibilities!


Think about the ingredients you would need for your magic potion.


A large sprinkle of soft rose petals?

A small scoop of colourful glitter?

A teaspoon of melting chocolate chips?


Write an ingredients list for your magic potion. Think about using adjectives to describe the colour and size of each item.

Task 2: Spot The Features of Instructions


What are instructions? Why do we need them? Where have you seen them before? 


Have a look at the instructions below. Can you colour in the time conjunctions and the imperative verbs? 

Task 3: Write Instructions For Your Magic Potion


Look at the the ingredients list you created for your very own magic potion. Using the word mat to help you, can you tell somebody in your house how to make it?


Now, write down your instructions! You can use the template below to help you, or make your own.
