Mess, Muck and Mixtures

This half term our topic is ‘Mess, Muck and Mixtures’.  We started the topic with a Messy afternoon, where the children investigated different materials such as shaving foam, sand, talcum powder, jelly and used thesaurus to find interesting adjectives to describe them.  We also used different techniques to create pieces of art, which included ink blowing and bubble art.

Our literacy focus this half term is surrounding ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’ by Roald Dahl.  We will be learning all about the characters from the story and creating Character Profiles.  The children in Class 6 really enjoyed sharing their Roald Dahl books from McDonalds last half term, so we are hoping they will be excited about their upcoming learning.

Our Role Play area takes on a Pizza Parlour theme, where children can create different pizzas and generally make a mess!!   This will also include writing opportunities of menus, orders etc and numeracy opportunities of adding up bills, paying with money, giving change etc.
