Hansel and Gretel

Last week we read three different Hansel and Gretel stories. On Friday we talked about the witch's house, which had walls of gingerbread and windows of clear sugar. But what happened to her house when it rained?! On Friday we dissolved ginger biscuits in water to find out. The gingerbread went very soggy! This week a storm is arriving again, but this time Room 9 has some ideas to help the witch waterproof her house. Watch this space!


  1. Ooooooo, I can't wait to hear about what you did and what happened. Please let us know soon with photos too please!

  2. it all sounded like great fun and we certainly enjoyed talking through how to make things waterproof!!
