In this workshop we will explore Holyrood Park using all our senses. We will make a sound map, investigate our sense of touch in a texture hunt and sharpen our sense of smell with a smelly challenge.
Biological systems: Body systems and cells
I have explored my senses and can discuss their reliability and limitations in responding to the environment.
Planet Earth: Biodiversity and interdependence
I can distinguish between living and non-living things. I can sort living things into groups and explain my decisions.
Social Studies: People, place and Environment
Having explored the landscape of my local area, I can describe the various ways in which land has been used.
By exploring a natural environment different from my own, I can discover how the physical features influence the variety of living things.
I can explain how the physical environment influences the ways in which people use land by comparing my local area with a contrasting area.
Through activities in my local area, I have developed my mental map and sense of place. I can create and use maps of the area.
Listening and Talking: Tools for listening and talking
When I engage with others, I can respond in ways appropriate to my role, show that I value others’ contributions and use these to build on thinking.
Finding and using information
I can select ideas and relevant information, organise these in an appropriate way for my purpose and use suitable vocabulary for my audience.
