This half term is going to be a little bit different as it’s a little bit longer than the other half terms we have decided to cover 2 topics. The first topic you will be looking at is called Coastlines. During this project we will learn about the physical and human features of coastal regions across the United Kingdom. We will be doing lots of research about coastal areas in our country and taking on some independent tasks.
The next topic we will be covering is Muck, Mess and Mixtures which is my favourite topic. Let’s get messy! Muck and mess are good. In fact, they're marvellous. We will be diving in and getting our hands and feet all sticky and covered in paint. We will 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, 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? Don’t worry about the mess – it’ll always wash.
