The Discovery Den

The Discovery Den

In Westbourne this week the topic the children in Nursery, Kindergarten and Reception explored in the Discovery Den was using their senses. This is something they think about in other areas of the curriculum but the activities gave the opportunity for some interesting experimentation and language work.  

The activities included taking an eye test, a tasting table, and guessing the animal sounds on the iPads.  There was a feely mat to walk across with bare feet if they were feeling brave and feely pots to put their hands inside.

Using their sense of smell, they had to sniff different pots to see if they could guess what was inside. They found it tricky to guess the vinegar, but liked the smell of talcum powder.

There was much collaboration and discussion and lots of fun was had by everyone!
