Today some of the children chose their favourite line from their poem and read it out for the video.
Listen carefully and you will hear some very clever similes.
½ cup of cornflour Red food colouring
1 ½ cups of water a frying pan
measuring cups a stirring spoon
Mix all the ingredients in a frying pan. We used an electric frypan.
Heat the mixture slowly, stirring continuously.
Once the mixture is thick, stop stirring. Allow it to cool.
Handle at ‘blood’ temperature.
2 teaspoons of Lux flakes a few drops of food colouring
2 cups of very hot water a mixing bowl
a measuring cup a stirring spoon
Mix all ingredients together vigorously.
Your mixture will bubble and foam. Watch it flow over the table, slipping and sliding.
It will clean up your table and your hands. (But it will mess up your clothes).
