Science- Human body and the senses

This week we will continue our work on the senses focusing on the sense of sight. Sight is one of the most important senses for finding out about the world around us. People use their eyes for almost every activity, from reading a book to riding a bicycle.

Watch the short video found below. After watching the video there are a variety of activities/experiments for you to try. You do not need to complete all the activities- please choose an activity that interests you.

Key Questions

How many eyes do you have?

What do you use your eyes for?

What colour are your eyes? 

How do you look after your eyes?

 

Try this fun quiz! Below is a document with pictures of different eyes. Can you identify which animals these eyes belong to? Answers are included on the second sheet of the document.

 

Here is a sight experiment for you to try. All you need is five pennies, a paper cup and a partner.

 

 

Braille

Braille is a code that is used to help people who can't see, to read and write. It is made up of lots of bumps and dips on a page. These bumps and dips all have different meanings and can show letters and numbers. Braille is read by running your fingertips over the bumps and dips, to work out what they mean. Braille was invented by a boy called Louis Braille.

Using the Braille Alphabet above, practise writing your name and other sentences. Can you write a secret code using braille? 

If you would like, you can print out the worksheet below. It has the braille alphabet and a space for you to write some sentences.

 

 

If you are interested in learning more about Louis Braille and how braille was invented, watch the video below.

Spellings

This week some of our spellings focused on words ending in the letter x and how we spell these words when they become plurals. Here is a video which recaps the rule for plurals.
