Sensing the World

Yesterday Fig Tree Class had a special visitor from the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB). The visitor came in to talk to the children about their 5 senses. They listened to a story about a Hedgehog who goes out exploring for the first time and how he used his sense of hearing, smelling, sight, taste and touch. The children were very excited to explore the natural environment around them. They used their sense of sight to find many colours outside. They used their sense of touch to feel and describe natural materials like trees and petals. They loved closing their eyes and identified the sounds they could hear. They heard birds, the traffic and children playing. At snack time, they used their sense of smell and taste to describe the different fruits. All the children enjoyed this exciting session.
