Ourselves - we will be looking at ourselves focusing on appearance, our senses and what makes us unique.
We read the Funnybones by Janet and Allan Ahlberg. We learnt the names of parts of our bodies, how we use our skeleton for different activities. We constructed skeletons from different materials and labelled different bones.
We used mirrors to look at our faces. We learnt about the words we can use to describe ourselves, our hair colour, eye colour and how tall we are compared to our classmates.
A visitor came to see us to talk about our senses and the way we move around. We used blindfolds, headphones, crutches and a wheelchair to see what it would be like to lose one of our senses or our mobility. We worked together as a team to move around safely with one person giving commands like forwards, backwards, left and right.
