Who was involved? All of Nursery
When? Monday 15th October to  Friday 19th October
Briefly describe how the activity / event added to the SMSC experience for the children. For our Sensory week we explored the 5 senses. We have had lots of fun, focussing on a different sense each day. We have explored sensory bottles, smelt different herbs and also touched different materials such as water beads in the water tray. We have also been on an Autumn listening walk and listened for the ‘snap, crackle and pop’ of rice krispies as well as tasting different fruits. It was a fun filled week and the children clearly had fun.
Any other details? We also made a ‘sensory sheet’ where we had to work out which body part matched to the different senses such as nose to smell. The children had lots of fun and we are looking forward to the next themed day or week!
