Dream Believe Achieve

Term 1 - Muck, Mess and Mixtures

In Year Two we have been loving our topic Muck, Mess and Mixtures.  In art we have been learning about marble painting, Mondrian, Pointillism, colour mixing and much more!  We have made fairy potions at Forest School, clay models, written poems, recipes and our own versions of Where the Wild Things Are. 


In science we have been exploring Everyday Materials and have had a great time doing lots of experiments!  Also lots of children have been busy baking, painting, writing, reading and lots more at home. We love to celebrate all the home learning with the classes.  Well done and thank you to the children and their families for a brilliant term... 


We hope you enjoy the photos of the child's learning below!

In Leeds class, we worked in groups to design a potion, discussing what it would do and the ingredients that we would add. We then made our potions and watched the magic concoctions come together. Take a look at our messy, mucky afternoon!

In Leeds class, we have been looking at a variety of artists and art types. In this lesson, we were exploring Georges Seurat’s ‘Pointillism’. We produced some lovely Pointillism fish and created an ‘Under the Sea’ themed display in our classroom.

In our topic 'Muck, Mess and Mixtures' one aspect is looking at foods and learning how to make them using recipes. This week, we have been writing instructions to make a sandwich. Once we had written them, we then used them to make a sandwich. We decided as a class that they made sense and were clear to follow; The sandwiches were very yummy!

In D &T we made clay boats using inspiration from our story in English ‘Where the wild things are’; We designed our own sails too! We discussed the material ‘clay’ and used adjectives to describe it...

Throughout our topic ‘Muck, Mess and Mixtures’ this term, we will be looking at a variety of different artists exploring: who they were, what they did and recreating some of their art work. This week we have been looking at Mondrian and his use of primary colours within his art work. This was a messy lesson, which we enjoyed and produced some amazing work!

In Leeds class, we have been looking at Primary and Secondary colours. We have been exploring what these are and how we can make them. Take a look at our learning and the creative things we made; we most certainly did get messy with our paint mixing!
