Sensory Room

As part of our 5 senses investigation the children have spent time in the sensory room. Here they have been challenged to find items that make a sound, provide light and have an interesting texture.

Each child has then described to their group why they have chosen the item and how it works.

DSCF0373 “This makes a bell noise the bells go to the bottom with a crash!”


DSCF0380 “This goes pop like Rice krispies!”


“The plastic bits bump and make a noise like the rain sticks!”

Would you like to explore in our sensory room?
