The Investigators have been learning all about 'senses' and this week were focusing on 'hearing'. They enjoyed exploring the sounds of musical instruments and thought of different adjectives to describe each sound. They also went on a sound walk through school and noticed the different noises both inside and outside. After exploring hearing aids and how they have changed over the years, they became sound inventors and made their own amplifier to make everything louder!
Their favourite part of the week was a visit from Simon and his interpreter from British Sign Language. Simon was born deaf and shared his life experience with the class. They discovered how he communicates through sign language and they learnt lots of greetings and animals in sign language. Their favourite was the sign for a monkey!!
