During our topic 'Incredible Me' we have been learning all about our super senses. We discovered that there are five senses; smell, touch, taste, sight and hearing. We explored how we use these senses by feeling different objects and describing the textures of them. We came up with some amazing adjectives to describe how they felt to touch! We then used our favourite sense, taste! We conducted a taste test to see what certain foods tasted like and whether we liked it or not.
This week in Lion class we have been exploring our sense of touch, taste and smell. We have used the feely tubs to feel different materials and, as a group, came up with different describing words for each one. The children also had the opportunity to taste and smell different items of food. We enjoyed recording our results about the taste and smell of the different foods into a table, although I'm not sure how we felt about the lemons!! Take a look at our pictures below.
We have enjoyed exploring the classroom during our first week as the Lion Class. We have taken part in lots of different activities and loved being back at school!
This week we have been learning to skillfully use a paintbrush to create an observational self portrait.
We needed to look carefully in a mirror paying attention to our facial features. We talked about where our eyes, ears, mouth and nose are on our face. We also looked at our skin, hair and eye colour. Take a look at the photos of us hard at work.
