Investigative Science

During the first part of the autumn term, Olive class have been learning all about how amazing our bodies are. How they work, move and what our 5 senses help us to do. We have used these senses to investigate things, such as discovering smelly plants in the school garden and what happens to our taste buds when we eat lemons!



 The children talked about the different parts of their bodies and enjoyed drawing around one another and then labelling as many parts as they could remember. 



 We learnt how our sense of smell is also closely linked to our sense of taste and that things that don't smell nice often don't taste nice either! However, some children decided to push themselves and dare to try the flavour of smelly Stilton cheese and the response was surprising to them!
