Topic for this term:

Muck, Mess and Mixtures and St David’s Story

Any further details about this term’s topic:

Muck, Mess and Mixtures

Let’s get messy! Muck and mess is good! In fact, it’s mega 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 wobble jelly 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!
