Our Topic for Spring 1 is 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 wobbly jelly 

and draw with wibbly clay.
