The Owl Babies

We enjoyed watching Sian and Simon’s performance of The Owl Babies.  In the afternoon we used our imaginations to make characters from things we could find in the classroom.  Then we revisited the Owl Babies’ woods and used our senses to find out what was there.  We could see animal silhouettes, we tasted woodland fruits, we smelled flowers, we touched and described woodland objects and we listened to Simon’s song.  Then we all joined in.  We had a really fantastic day.

Our Bodies & Our Senses

We have been learning all about us this half term – about our bodies and our senses.  We drew around a friend and then labelled as many body parts as we could – both those we could see and those that we knew were inside our bodies.  We have investigated all our senses too – sorting objects using only our eyes, seeing what made the school bell louder and quieter, guessing what was inside a bag by feeling, making smelly playdough and trying to tell what something tasted of without seeing it.
