Muck, Mess and Mixtures
Let’s get messy. Muck and mess are good. In fact, they’re marvellous. Dive in and get your hands and feet all sticky and covered in paint. 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 mixture and draw with wibbly clay. 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? How will the gallery make you and your visitors feel? Don’t worry about the mess – it’ll always wash.
Keep your eyes peeled on our class Dojo story to see what exciting activities we have planned ahead!
Our Year 2 history project is Street Detectives, teaching children about our local area. This project develops children’s knowledge of key landmarks, services and the community, how these have changed over the years and what they, as the young generation, can do for their local area.
Movers & Shakers
This knowledge-rich project teaches children about historically significant people who have had a major impact on the world. They will learn to use timelines, stories and historical sources to find out about the people featured and use historical models to explore their significance.
This is an exciting science project which develop children’s knowledge of coastal features. The children will learn to observe, identify and classify seaside plants and animals, and learn about habitats, food chains and environmental issues.
