Autumn Term 1- Me and My 5 Senses!

Me and My 5 Senses
Autumn Term 1


 

We are learning to experiment with different everyday objects and use our senses to sort them into groups according to simple features.
 

  • Week 3 17/9/12- TOUCH
This week we are learning about the sense of touch. We have been discussing why we need the sense touch and what we use it for. We have been experimenting with paint and touch making hand print pictures- this is really messy but lots of fun! We have a feely box with different scary, weird and wonderful objects in for the children to explore. Our focus task has been feeling items under a blanket, making a prediction and then finding out the final result! Ask your child what they have been doing this week.....
 
  • Week 4 24/9/12- HEARING

 

This week we are learning about the sense of HEARING. We have been discussing why we need the to hear what we use it for. We have been listening to lots of different sounds and guessing what they are! Children have been on a Sound Trail around our school listening for different sounds. We have also been listening to stories and music using a CD player! Ask your child what they have been doing this week.....
 
  • Week 4 3/10/12- TASTE 
This week we are learning about the sense of TASTE. We have been discussing how we taste things. We were all blindfolded and given different flavoured sweets to try! We loved this task and the children were really good at guessing the right flavours. We have also been sorting foods we like to taste and foods we dont.
 
  • Week 4 8/10/12 SIGHT 

 

This week we are learning about the sense of SIGHT. We have been discussing why we need the to sight. We have been learning to use only our sense of sight to observe things around our school. We draw what we saw above, below and to the left/right of us in the outside area. Children were also all given a small new potato to look at every day. At the end of the week children will mix all their potatos up and see if they can find theirs using only sight!
