We have been going a bit science crazy this week. We have linked our literacy work with another area of science - the senses. We discussed and learnt what the 5 senses are and then spent three days exploring a three different senses - sight, sound and touch. For sight the children had a picture of a troll, they had to describe what they saw. For sound the children listened to a range of sound clips from farm animals to woodland sounds, they had to describe what they heard. Today we explored the sense of touch. The children were given a tray filled with a range of items from lolly-pop sticks to plastic cups. The tray was covered with a tea-towel. They had to use those nerves in their fingers to describe what they saw. It was so tempting to have a sneaky peak at what was in the tray, but they all tried really hard! We will use this knowledge to write a poem all about the woods and the seasons.
