This afternoon the children explored all the different sights, smells and sounds in the sensory room. The sensory room encourages children to touch a range of materials and describe what they feel and see.
The children were fascinated with the fish in the bubble lamp and watched as it changed colour “I like yellow!”
“This smells like apples”

What could we add to our sensory room?
This week in the sensory room we are using our sense of touch to feel the fruit and vegetables in the feely box. We have been working very hard to try and describe what we are feeling.
Â “it’s like an orange and its round, it could be apple?”
Â “soft, hard, banana!”
“it’s squashy, it feels like soft”
“it has lots of green on it because it must be different”
“it feels heavy, circle” it wasÂ a mushroom
“it’s cold, its squashy and it’s round”Â out came a pear.
