Our Senses

To dive into the world of our senses, we started with the wonderful taste experience of `dinner in the dark´. Under the motto of risk taker, trust, courage, curiosity and reflection, we explored how life would be without sight and thought about how we use other senses to support us. This was a real highlight and the children really enjoyed the experience.

We were courageous to try all the different foods. It was exciting to guess the ingredients. Our menu was a ´greeting from the kitchen´ consisting of couscous, gorgonzola and beetroot, followed by an orange/raspberry salad. The main course of pasta, tomato sauce and pesto went down a treat! The dessert was a baked apple stew with marzipan and cranberry sauce.

As we continued to explore our senses, the Jade class brainstormed a wide range of activities that we could try out with our eyes closed. We focused on how important sound and touch are for carrying out tasks and learning.
