The children will be learning about ‘Our Bodies’ in Aistear up until Easter. This week they are doing experiments using their five senses. They tasted a variety of salt, sweet, sour and bitter food, they used the musical instruments to create noises to match pictures, the guessed what objects were in the ‘Feely Box’, they looked at optical illusions and discussed what they could see and they used their noses to guess what was in the ‘Smell Pots’. At the Art Table the children made pasta skeletons. They really enjoyed this as they have been learning about the human skeleton and why we need it. In the Home Corner the children were in role as doctors, nurses, patients, cleaners and secretaries in ‘The Doctor’s Surgery’. In Construction they made bodies out of Mobilo.
