Week 3 - 15th June

Click here and follow the link to this week’s story Princess Mirror-Belle and the Dragon Pox

This week we are reading and enjoying "Princess Mirror-Belle and the Dragon Pox".

So your first task is to use a mirror to have a good look at yourself and then draw a self- portrait.

Think about the marks you make.

What shape is your head?

Are your eyes at the top of your head? No? Where do they go on your face?

What shape is your nose? What are the two holes at the bottom?

When you have finished your portrait you could add some dragon pox spots if you wish.

Why don't you try drawing all the members of your family. Ask them to sit still!

At the end of the week we'll put all the photos of your work together for you all to see.


Task 2

Princess Mirror-Belle created a bubbly mixture to try and cure her's and Ellen's dragon pox. Have a go at this experiment and make your own bubbling potion.


Whilst doing this experiment talk to you child about what they can see.

  • What happens when the ingredients are mixed together?
  • What can you see?
  • What words can you use to describe your potion?
  • What colours can you see?


The Science Behind the Experiment – A Guide for Adults

Bicarbonate of soda is a chemical called sodium bicarbonate and is an alkali. Vinegar contains acetic acid. Mixing bicarbonate of soda and vinegar creates a reaction forming carbon dioxide which makes the bubbles and a residue of a type of salty water.
