                                                          Muck, Mess and Mixture!


Let’s get messy. Muck and mess are good. In fact, they're marvellous. Dive in and get your hands and feet all sticky and covered in paint. Play with liquids, squish some dough and check out the slushiest and mushiest foods. Pour, mix, stir, splat. How does it feel to get your hands covered in goo? Make a wobbly jelly and draw with wibbly clay. Write recipes, instructions, riddles and poems – there are loads of scrummy words to describe messy mixtures. Work with paint and other squelchy stuff to create a new gallery space. What will you make? How will you arrange it? How will the gallery make you and your visitors feel? Don’t worry about the mess – it’ll always wash.


Now doesn't that sound exciting?


If you would like to get a head start with this topic then why not start learning at home before you return to school in September. 


You could do this by:


- Set up a melting experiment. Take two or three glasses and fill them with the same number of ice cubes. Put them in different places and see which melts first. Do the ice cubes melt faster if you stir them? How will you present your findings?


- Create an original piece of artwork inspired by an artist you admire.


- Write a poem with the title ‘Muck, mess and mixtures’ and try to include some some exciting adjectives!  the class


That should keep you going!


We look forwards to welcoming you back very soon, for now, have a wonderful summer!

21.09.2020- During RE we thought about Gods amazing creation and how he feels when we don't look after it. We made our own creations out of Play Doh and then discussed how we would feel if someone broke it or threw dirt on it and didn't look after it.

Fruit Tasting- We learnt which continent fruit came from and tried different fruit. Some of the fruit we tried was grape fruit, papaya, passion fruit, kiwi, pomegranates, melon and mango. We also learnt lots of facts about the continents.
