On Thursday 12th October Fox Class went to Rosemoor!

We took part in an ‘Explore the Senses’ activity led by John throughout the gardens.

First, we had to taste fruit and vegetables, learning the difference between them! We tasted cucumber, carrots, fennel and pepper.

Then we went to explore the gardens! We listened to the sounds we could hear and took part in a challenge for our touch sense. In groups, the children had to find items that were either rough, soft, hard or spikey. We then swapped materials and guessed what our challenge card was.

Next, we explored our senses of smell. We each had a cup and was allowed to pick fallen flowers and plants from the floor to create a ‘smelly cocktail’.

We had a play around the gardens before heading home!
