Week beginning 16th January 2012
Last week, we highlighted the sense of smell. The children were able to talk about ‘noses’ and how they could use them to smell as well as breathe. Intrigued by the pots covered with tissue, some of the children happily took a risk and smelt them to see if they could identify what was inside. Cocoa powder was a favourite, whereas the pot containing onion was not and when the pot was passed around, some of the children’s expressions changed! It was not a smell they liked. This was a very language rich activity with the children beginning to hear and use new vocabulary. Next time your child peels an orange or a tangerine, encourage them to think about the smell and how they would describe it. Meal times are the perfect opportunity to talk about the smells around us. The smell of chocolate cookies coming from the Foundation Stage kitchen was wonderful. The children of K1R had been busy baking! Cooking in K1 is a fantastic learning experience that includes all of our six areas of learning.
We hope you enjoy our pictures!
