‘Muck, Mess and Mixtures’
This half term our topic is 'Muck, Mess and Mixtures'. We’ll have a messy afternoon to create crazy concoctions and marvellous mixtures. We’ll enjoy the story of George’s Marvellous Medicine and write recipes, leaflets, lists and stories of our own. We’ll use our science skills to explore everyday materials, investigate soap products and understand why mixtures freeze and melt. We’ll taste a wide variety of foods, learn about healthy eating and follow recipes to make some yummy treats including smoothies and ice cream! Our artwork will also rely on our mixing skills. We’ll use marbling inks to make unusual patterns, create food landscapes inspired by Carl Warner, paint with ice cubes, model clay into exciting shapes and use a variety of materials to make mixed media collages.
This term Mrs Sibson will be teaching the class Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning, and Mrs Cartwright will be teaching the class Wednesday afternoon, Thursday and Friday.
