Years 1 & 2

Years 1 and 2 Curriculum Overview

Muck, Mess and Mixtures

Let’s get messy! This topic is all about diving in, getting involved and having a go!

In this half term we will be learning to follow a recipe, find out where our food comes from and how to make health food choices. Art will be a focus and children will get the chance to experiment with different styles and methods of creating sculptures, prints and paintings.

We will be looking at George’s Marvellous Medicine in English, writing our own stories and poems- there are loads of great words to describe messy mixtures! This will link in with our Science which will involve lots of experiments, predictions and evaluations to look closely at what has happened.

Don’t worry about the mess- it’ll always wash off!

Ideas to help at home:

  • Cook something with a grown-up and take a picture of what you have done.
  • Use a measuring jug to measure different amounts of water in the sink or bath.
  • Write a poem using the title ‘Muck, Mess and Mixtures’.
  • Look at the food in your fridge- research where it comes from.
