Today, a mysterious package arrived addressed to Year 2. Inside were five paintbrushes and a note with a warning saying: beware of the magic! The children were curious as to what this meant so in groups they used the paintbrushes to paint different items such as chocolate, money and a teddy bear. Some children called out abracadabra and others shook their paintings but no magic seemed to happen. The children then headed back to class and listened to the story of the Magic Paintbrush. In this story everything that is painted becomes real. The children wanted to check if their paintings had become real too! And they had! Year 2 couldn't believe their eyes!
