Bingo and Soap Carving

We started the meeting off with a few exiting rounds of bingo! Ratty’s favourite number name being ‘fat lady with a cane’. After this, we relaxed with a satisfying activity of soap carving. Our challenge was to carve out a symbol that you’d find on a map and to guess what others had made.

Magic Show!

This week we were joined by a member of The Magic Circle who performed a show for us! In one trick he read minds, guessing words people were thinking of and names of films. In another, he turned a glass full of water upside down without anything spilling. When Sophie tried it over Scully’s head... it did not work! 
He also revealed how to do a couple of magic tricks with cards, which we all tried out at home.
