In their themed learning topic about the human body, Year 2 students have been investigating the 5 senses and have conducted some interesting experiments to find out more. In pursuit of knowledge about ‘sight’ the children discovered that the brain connects to the eyes and that we can trick our brains with optical illusions. Looking at ‘moving’ drawings, and drawings that cannot possibly be true but appear real, was fascinating and helped the children make sense of their learning about sight. Moving onto ‘sound’ the children conducted a fun experiment to trick their ears into hearing something that wasn’t there and also investigated why animals have all sorts of shapes and sizes. The human body certainly is interesting!
