Welcome to Year 2!
We hope you have had a lovely half term holiday and are ready to let your creative juices flow!
Our Autumn Term Topic - Muck, Mess and Mixtures
What will you add to your potion to give the wicked, evil grandma? We hope your medicine is marvellous!
Do you know how to make ice cream in a bag?
What will your art gallery look like?
Are you ready to get messy? It's time to explore new textures, smells, sounds and tastes! Let's get those hands covered in paint, cornflour, shaving foam! What can you feel? How can we create? Let's pour, mix, stir, splat, crush, grind different mixtures- I wonder what will happen to them? Don't worry about all the mess, it all helps our creativity. This creativity will help you make an art gallery to show to visitors!
Our new topic is all about mixtures of every sort, whether it be cornflour and water or milk and ice! What will happen when all of these different ingredients are mixed together? This topic will provide children with the opportunity to make different mixtures, explore what happens when different ingredients are mixed together and make their own ice cream! In Art children will be making their own food landscapes and look at using different materials to print pictures. In English we will be looking at 'George's Marvellous Medicine' and the wide range of vocabulary used by Roald Dahl to describe characters as well as the ingredients used for George to make his potion. The children will also be making their own stop-motion animations using play-dough! What a busy half term it will be!
Have a look at what George might do here!
Excited yet? Let's get messy!
