In Tigers, there was a smelling station, where the children smelled garlic, vanilla, cinnamon, shampoo and vinegar. Overall the vanilla was the best smell and the vinegar was the worst! In Lions the children had the chance to taste different foods including grapes, lemons, plain crisps and chocolate. I wonder if you can guess which was the least favourite from that group?!
The children had great fun feeling cooked pasta, shaving foam, feathers and peeled lychees in Jaguars class, using adjectives to describe what they were touching. In Leopards, the children laid on the floor with their eyes closed and tried to guess the sounds that they were hearing- a grandfather clock, children laughing and raindrops. Finally, in a darkened Panthers classroom, the children wore blindfolds whilst their friend directed them around obstacles.
The Year 1’s had lots of fun learning about their senses!
