YR 2 – Mrs Mulroy – Mam Tor
Muck, Mess and Mixtures
We’re warning you; this is going to get messy!
This half term, we’ll have a messy time investigating mixtures, from paint and toothpaste to jelly 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! Our artwork will also rely on our mixing skills. We’ll use marbling inks to make unusual patterns, create food landscapes inspired by Carl Warner, model clay into exciting shapes and use a variety of materials to make mixed media collages.

Help your child prepare for their project
Muck and mixtures can be messy and magical! Why not make a variety of fun recipes to reveal how mixtures can come together and change? Trifle, gooey cookies and bread would all be good to try. You could also invent a new soft drink. Mix, shake and stir a range of fruit juices, cordials and sparkling water together and taste each one. Pick the best and give it a groovy name. Alternatively, try making different bubble mixtures to see which make the biggest bubbles!

Changes are afoot in our EYFS unit! We are excited to announce that from September, we will have a separate nursery alongside two smaller Reception classes. We have had so much interest in nursery places this year that we have not been able to accommodate everyone’s wishes for extra hours or morning vs afternoon sessions. This has resulted in disappointment for some families and in other families being unable to attend our nursery as planned. A designated nursery class from September will allow us to offer a mix of full and part time places, up to about 12 full time and 28 part time.
