Multi-Sensory Settings with the 2nd Form

01 May 2018

 

Last week, boys in the 2nd Form took part in a sensory class as part of their English lessons.  The boys headed out to the school grounds where they were asked to explore their setting through a number of activities, which included:

  • Blindfolding their partners to see what happened when one of their senses were closed.
  • Collected smells from their surroundings.
  • Created a sound wheel by listening closely with their eyes closed.
  • Collected colours and texture rubbings from items in the grounds.

From the things they saw, heard, smelled and collected in the school grounds, the boys have used them to create a piece of writing which includes a description of a setting.

2nd Form teacher, Mrs Corrigan said “It was definitely a new and more hands on way to explore our surroundings and extracted some fantastic new phrases, such as "donkey grey, crushed blueberry blue, summer scent explosion and ghostly green".”
