The Five Senses

Last week Year 1 participated in a range of experiments based around the five senses.


  • Handled objects in a feely bag and then tried to guess what they were
  • Listened to different sounds and then matched them to a source
  • Smelled socks containing different objects – then tried to guess what the object was
  • Tasted jelly and sweets and tried to match them to a flavour

It was a lot of fun conducting these experiments and I was really impressed by the behaviour of Year 1 during these learning activities.

What did you learn about the five senses from our experiments?

I’ve included some photos as well.
