As Scientists, we will begin to look at the different senses we have and ask the following questions. How can we find out more about our senses? What could we investigate? Which parts of our body could we use?

The children will go on a senses walk around the school; we will explore and observe our environment. What things can we see? What can we hear? What can we touch, smell and taste?

We will then begin to research and investigate the different parts of the eyes, ears and nose.
