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!
