Science- making discoveries using our 5 senses.

Using our sense of touch and hearing, we could work out what was in the feely bag, but it would have been easier if we could have used the other senses too! So much fun!

  

Then we attempted a team game, tagging our team as we ran around the cones. Quite easy… when you can see.

   

Then we tried it blind folded, at a much slower pace. What differences did we notice?

   

Then back to the classroom to see how easy it is to know what is in the pot, using only our sense of smell.

  

We learned that our 5 senses can work well on their own, but do better as a team.

Taste the difference!

Science this week was all about exploring our different senses, and using them to help us identify differences between fruit and veg, put them into groups, and then turn our classroom into a Market Stall! We especially enjoyed tasting some of our products.

Old MacDonald needed the children’s help this week!

Poor Old MacDonald was getting a little confused this week, trying to work out how to share his ten sheep between two fields. Thankfully, Class One were there to step in and help out… occasionally with a little singing! (You know the one, ten sheep in the bed and the little one said….)
