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.

ILP focus Art & design
English Our writing will involve lots of scrummy words to describe messy mixtures.

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!
