Welcome to Barcelona!
Barcelona class will be exploring the cornerstones topic.......
Throw it, catch it, roll it, bounce it! BOING, BOING, BOING! Up and down and side to side, can you catch the bouncing ball? Can you bounce too? Jump like a horse, leap like a frog or kick like a kangaroo! How many bounces can you do? Design a game, bouncy or otherwise! Then write instructions for someone else to play. Are the instructions clear enough? Can the players follow them? Who will score highest? Then let’s create a Sporting Challenge Day for parents and carers. Can they hit it, roll it, win it? Now let’s relax. Breathe deeply and stretch those tired muscles. Yawn – all that bouncing must have made you tired!

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. 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!
Barcelona will be exploring the topic........
Tiptoe through the tulips as your senses discover the blooming foliage and enchanting fragrances of flowers and herbs. Round and round the mulberry bush we go, planting bulbs and seeds, and then watch them grow beneath sunshine and showers. Explore the astounding world of the scented garden, but be careful, there are some wild and dangerous plants out there that do astonishing things – just don’t touch! Use the marvellous properties of plants, flowers and herbs to make an exceptional gift for somebody special. Everything is coming up roses! Why not grow your own?
