Last week we were looking at another super sense… SMELL!
We added lovely scents in our kitchen area on Monday and our chefs cooked and baked up some delicious dishes!
We have done games and experiments to test our sense of smell. We had to close our eyes and use our nose to smell what Mrs Meadows was holding infront of us.
We watched a video about what our noses are for and then did an experiment to show how far our germs can spread if we don’t catch our sneezes with a tissue.
We have been very busy outside this week despite some poor weather. There has been trips to the forest to get ingredients for the mud kitchen, hide and seek and lots of water play to name a few.
When it was nice and dry at the start of the week we carried on painting the sand/ mud pit, its looking lovely and bright!
We have been to the shore to watch the waves crashing! We spoke about the sea and rockpools, what we could see and smell, listened to the waves and did some road safety.
We have also done lots of building! We made a hot tub out of the bricks and tarpaulin and it needed lots of filling up! Then we made a house to shelter under while it rained using good team work and strength to move the heavy tyres. It was lots of fun.
Inside we have been loving having our climbing frame back! We have been monkeys, kings and queens and made a den. We also had our obstacle course out to practice our balancing which was very poplular. Finally we have been continuing to work on our lovely family trees and they are all looking super!
