Upper School Topic Launch

Upper School Topic Launch

This term, Upper School are learning about friends and family, our five senses, our likes and dislikes and how we look after ourselves in the topic ‘Incredible Me!’. We celebrated the start of the topic with our ‘Topic Launch Day – Five Senses’ where we all explored each of the five senses in different areas of the school.

This term, Upper School are learning about friends and family, our five senses, our likes and dislikes and how we look after ourselves in the topic ‘Incredible Me!’. We celebrated the start of the topic with our ‘Topic Launch Day – Five Senses’ where we all explored each of the five senses in different areas of the school.

Elephant Class had an amazing topic launch day. We really enjoyed all playing the boom whackers in different ways. Then recreating familiar sounds like the sounds of waves crashing at the beach followed by a big storm using our choice of instruments.

Lion Class also enjoyed making a lot of noise in the music room when exploring the sense ‘Hear’. We used the boom whackers to make sounds whilst chanting the team day songs and created loud and quiet sounds with our favourite instruments.

Leopard Class have thoroughly enjoyed our Topic Launch day today. we enjoyed learning about their five senses, in particular Harry enjoyed turning on all the light up toys. Kye’s favourite activity was collecting leaves in the environmental area and experiencing a range of different textures.

Crocodile Class used our five senses to complete a scavenger hunt in the school’s environmental area. We compared man-made and natural materials after identifying them using our senses.

Tiger Class really enjoyed the hall! We loved using the torches in the tents and under the cover. We also enjoyed making funny faces and shining the torch from under their chins. Some children were really good at making shadow puppets using their hands. We were able to navigate our way along the course using the string to help us to know what direction to move in when our eyes were shut!

Giraffe Class enjoyed finding out the things we liked and disliked throughout the day. In the hall we enjoyed exploring different lights and colours.

Zebra Class really enjoyed trying out our sense of smell, although we didn’t all enjoy the smells! We tried the smells, some even went back for second sniffs, although the egg and vinegar were not requested for a second smell. We learnt how warmth or moving things increases smell, discussed how memorable smells are, and talked about the smells we liked and didn’t like with reasons why.
Gorilla Class also explored smells! We enjoyed smelling flowers, especially Ben, who loved the sunflower! We used our sense of smell to guess what was in each bag.
We are all looking forward to learning about our new topic and sharing our work with you!
