The magic of mixing

16th May 2022

Learning about how materials behave was on the agenda for Year Two today, as our super scientists were busy exploring the magic of mixing.

Was it messy? ✅

As children (and adults), we need to become comfortable with mess during play. 

Was it fun? ✅

Was there learning? ✅

It is so important that children have the opportunity to mix water with other substances they find outdoors: both the process and the products of mixing water and materials, such as sand and soil, can support children’s play in so many ways. Alchemy and fantasy working side-by-side, resulting in incredibly powerful play experiences.  

There were pies, stews, potions and all manner of mixtures on the menu today! We can’t wait to see what’s in store over the days to come 😃.
