My Senses

Over the past few weeks we have been really enjoying learning all about our five senses, and the things that we can do with them. We enjoyed talking about how we can use our senses on the way to school and also made our own senses book.

We enjoyed using our smelling sense . to smell different scents. We then had to describe what we thought we had smelt , which proved to be an interesting experience for some of the children.

We also enjoyed using the touch station to feel different objects inside rubber gloves, We felt banana , baked beans , flour and sugar. 

We have also enjoyed using paint mixed with sand to create a textured picture and described how it felt once our painting had dried. 

On Tuesday 18th October , we were lucky enough to have a visit from the Guide Dog Association. Meg the guide dog , came to visit our class with her owner , Eddie who is blind and Frances who is Eddie's husband. We learnt about lots of different ways that Meg helps Eddie , and found it very interesting to learn that Meg knows what time to wake up Eddie , and she does this by barking.

We are continuing to learn about Baptism in our RE lessons for the first few weeks after half term. If you have a photograph of your child's Baptism  at home please could you send it into school.

Our topic after half term is celebrations and festivals and for the first week back we shall be learning about the festival Diwali and learning about Bonfire  night.

I hope you and your children enjoy a well rested break over the half term holidays.

Kind Regards

Miss Parmley
