Senses in P1C!

Yesterday we were learning all about our five senses! We did lots of different activities to explore them! We had so much fun!

Hearing: we had eggs filled with different objects and we had to work out what was inside.

Sight: We had goggles which had been covered with paper and we had to try and write our name without being able to see. We agreed how lucky we were to have our sight.

Taste: We got to taste something sweet, sour, salty and bitter!

Smell: In covered plastic cups we had; Vanilla, cinnamon, garlic, oranges, coffee and lemon juice. We had to work out what the smell was.

Touch: We had a large piece of paper with lots of different materials and objects on it. We had to describe how they felt using our sense of touch!

Have a look at a few photos!

Learning in P1a this week!

This week in Primary 1a we have been learning all about the 5 senses and how they help us explore the world around us. Everyone was really excited to share their learning with you on the blog.

We had 4 stations that we went round and it was really fun. They were:

  1. Smell: We had cups that had different smells in them such as lemon juice, coffee, vanilla and garlic. We couldn’t see in them and we had to guess what they were!
  2. Hearing: inside plastic eggs were objects like; bells, stones, rice and water and we had to work out which one was which.
  3. Sight: we had to put on a pair of goggles which had one eye covered! We had to try and write our name using the sight from just one eye!
  4. Touch: we had lots of different materials stuck to a big bit of paper and we had to feel them and describe what they felt like.

We are going to do taste in a couple of weeks time!

Here are some pictures:

Josh Kay also wrote a book at home called ‘What did the fox say?’. He read it to the class who all enjoyed it and found it funny. Here is a picture of Josh with his book, well done Josh!

More next week!
