As part of our science focus this term P2S have been learning about their senses. This week we have been learning all about our eyes and our sense of sight.
Firstly, we learned all about the different parts of the eye. Then we drew a picture of our eye and labelled its parts.
On Thursday, we were very lucky to have a visit from 2 guide dogs and their trainers. We learned lots about people who are blind and how these wonderful animals help them to keep safe.
On Friday, we learned about Braille and how it allows blind people to read. We used our new knowledge to make our names in braille using lentils.
To finish off our focus on sight, we had the chance to experience what life might be like if we were blind. Wearing a blindfold, and with a little help from our partners, we explored the playground. It was really tricky and some of us found it quite scary too!
On Monday Elvis asked us to sort through some different Christmas objects investigating whether or not they were magnetic. The children had lots of fun carrying out this activity and we learned some information about magnets and forces. We love science!
Today Elvis challenged us to work as a team and build a Christmas tree using green plastic cups. We had lots of great ideas during our brainstorm session and we tried lots of different ways to make it work.
The green group worked so well as a team and managed to complete the challenge first.
To make it even more difficult Miss Stark told the class to try again – but this time they weren’t allowed to touch the cups with their hands! The children very quickly came up with a number of solutions.
