Spring 1 - Muck, Mess and Mixtures
We’re warning you; this is going to get messy!
This half term, we’ll have a messy afternoon to investigate mixtures, from paint and toothpaste to slime and shaving foam.
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 like flapjacks! We’ll look at the work of Carl Warner and the foodscapes he makes and think about how we can make our own food sculptures using fresh fruit and vegetables. We’ll use a range of printed materials which we will tear, cut and glue to create texture and think about tone, lines, colour and shape to create our own piece of artwork. Inspired by the work of Carl Warner, we will become reporters and write about his life using the think pads to research information to create a report. We’ll read the book Meerkat Mail, where we will compare the different locations to our own country, spotting the seven continents and five oceans on the way. In RE we will think about how the New Year is celebrated by the Buddhist faith and compare this to our own beliefs.
At the end of our project we will create a class collection of photos to share with you all!
