Topic for this term:



Alchemy Island

It's time to suspend your disbelief and open your mind. We're going on a magical journey to Alchemy Island!

Can you find the gold hidden deep within the island's mysterious landscape? The only way is to study the map, unravel the riddle and begin your adventure.

On the way, you must do all you can to learn about gold and master the ancient art of alchemy. Be creative and try to impress the island's team of ace alchemists. Will they praise your scientific expertise?

What if there were a video game version of Alchemy Island? Could you compose a stunning soundtrack to bring this mysterious landscape to life?

You've got your map, co-ordinates and everything else you need to make our way across Alchemy Island. Don't forget to pack your imagination!

Got your suitcase ready? Then let the journey begin....
