10R – fun and games using the touchscreen and EyeGaze equipment.

Sensory Science – brrrrrr it’s cold !

Pupils in 10R are learning about different temperatures this term. Today we explored frozen paints, pupils made marks with them and watched how the paints melted. We filled balloons with watercolours and froze them, they looked like giant marbles. We added salt and watched closely to see how the ice changed, we could even hear it cracking. Finally we added hot water and watched the ice melt leaving us with coloured water.

10R making playdough

10R worked together to make warm play dough. Pupils measured out the ingredients and developed their fine motor skills by spooning, stirring and pouring. We added pink UV paint to our dough to make it glow….. and lemon essential oils so it smelled beautiful. We carefully cooked the dough, turned out the lights and explored the texture, temperature and scent. Pupils kneaded, rolled and helped to form letters with the dough.

10R Sensory

10R slime factory for the Enterprise Fayre

10R had a very messy week exploring slime recipes, experimenting with colours and textures and producing our very own slime. We created Elf Snot, Reindeer Poop, Candy Cane slime and Unicorn Poop. Of course, we had to try it out first as part of our research and development. Our slime proved to be very popular, we made £70 profit.

10R Halloween UV treasure hunt

Pupils had fun searching for glowing treasure in the active zone. Pupils used UV torches to find prizes.

10R baking spooky spider cakes

10R worked together to make spooky spider cakes. A good opportunity to develop our fine and gross motor skills; pouring, stirring ,mixing, spooning and decorating. Smelling and tasting was fun too!

10R sensory mark making and letter formation

Pupils chose which coloured sand they wanted – which gave us a chance to practise signing our colours. Pupils were encouraged to make marks with their fingers and with glo-sticks. We looked at our initial sounds and looked at the patterns glow in the UV light.

10R Autumnal Art work

10R enjoyed a visit to the sensory garden. We looked at how big our flowers and plants have grown over the Summer. We checked the vegetable plots and saw that some lovely big pumpkins had grown, as well as runner beans and courgettes.
Pupils picked a few petals, some herbs and leaves to explore. We smelled the lovely Lavender and Mint.


9R STEM week

Pupils in 9R had a lot of fun during STEM week. Pupils explored a range of sensory Science experiments; working together we made glowing gloop and fizzy potions.
