Activity

Listen to the sound of badgers

Badgers make many noises depending on how they feel including: barking, chittering, growling, hissing, purring, snarling, sniffing, snorting and yelping.

  • Explore the sensation of a shaving brush to represent the badger's fur.

  • Explore a back scratcher to represent the badger's claws.

  • Play badger sound effects via your interactive whiteboard/Talking Tile/BIGmack/Dictaphone/iPad or similar device. Follow the link below to a library of badger sounds including eating, grooming, playing, scratching, sniffling https://sound-effects.bbcrewind.co.uk/search?q=badger&resultSize=20

Extend Learning

  • Can the sensory explorer guess what the badger is doing according to the noise they are making? e.g., eating, sniffing.

  • Can the student(s) match any sounds the badger is making to emotions? (annoyed, anxious, calm, confused, content, excited, relaxed, hurt, sad?)

  • Discuss the noises we make when we express emotion (crying when sad, laughing when happy etc)

Earthworms make up most of a badger's diet. You can supplement their food in the winter.

If you are lucky enough to have a badger visit your outdoor area, here are some of the foods they enjoy:

  • Fresh or dried fruit (apples, pears, plums), dried dog food, (unsalted sugar-free) peanut butter, mealworms.

  • Don't forget to leave a bowl of fresh, clean water.

  • Place a little sand around their eating area to see if you can spot any badger tracks.

October 7th
Lost in the Dark Peal

'Twyford Church' in Hampshire rings their bells on Oct 7th each year. This tradition originates from the story of a traveller who was lost in the fog and was able to find his way home by following the sound of the bells.

Activity

  • Dim the lights in the room.

  • Re-create the effect of fog by lighting a joss stick or by lightly draping a piece of net material or garden fleece in front of the sensory explorer's face.

Tip!

Place the material in the freezer beforehand for an authentic icy fog sensation.

  • Offer the sensory explorer a choice of bells: ankle bells, bicycles bells, chimes, cowbell, finger cymbals, hand bells, jingle stick, sleigh bells.

  • Practice ringing the bells at different tempos (fast/slow), sound levels (loud, quiet)

  • Can the sensory explorer copy a beat?

  • Does the sensory explorer show a preference for a particular bell?

  • Can the sensory explorer follow an instruction to 'stop' and 'start' ringing the bells?

This is not my favourite video as I had just come out of hospital when I filmed it, but it is packed with ideas! (Re-filming is on my 'to-do' list:)


October 10th
World Mental Health Day
  • Start the day with a ‘feelings’ check-in. How is everyone feeling today?

  • Some people might find it hard to express their feelings verbally, so offer the use of an emotions board or emotion cards as a visual support.

  • Acknowledge that it is normal to have feelings. Explore the things that make us feel happy, sad, anxious, tired, bored or excited.

October 10th
Columbus Day

Explore New Foods

Christopher Colombus bought many exotic foods back from his travels including the pineapple.

Present the pineapple* for sensory exploration.

  • Can the sensory explorer use their hands to feel the spherical shape?

  • Can the sensory explorer feel the weight of the pineapple?

  • Can the sensory explorer carefully touch the tough, spiky skin?

Non-Food Activity

  • Explore pineapple and vanilla scented hand and body lotions and lip balms.

  • Print using pineapples.

  • Paint using pineapple juice and pulp.

*Be allergy aware

Extend Learning

Christopher Colombus also introduced vanilla, allspice, and cocoa.

  • Smell, touch and taste these foods/spices and/or foods containing them.

  • Introduce the vocabulary 'sweet' and 'spicy' Can the sensory explorer place the foods in the correct category?

Grow a pineapple!

1. Carefully slice the top (crown) off a pineapple.

2. Remove the bottom leaves.

3. Leave to the crown to dry.

4. Fill a pot with soil/compost.

4. Place the crown of the pineapple onto the soil and gently press down.

5. Do not overwater and pop on a sunny spot.


is a holiday in the United States that was created in reaction to Columbus Day. Many US states and cities have renamed the holiday Indigenous People's Day to celebrate the communities who already lived in the Americas when Columbus arrived on shore.

One US teacher of the deaf told me that their state has a large indigenous community, so they discuss their culture and ancestry and compare it to the first people of the US and Canada.

Many indigenous North Americans make fried bread, sweet (add cinnamon and sugar) and savoury (add onion/garlic powder). Involve the students in mixing ingredients to make the dough, kneading, rolling and shaping. Would the students like to taste the bread? Offer a choice. Which do the students prefer, the sweet or a savoury?

The teacher told me they also explore indigenous communication smoke signals, Navajo code talkers of WWII, native sign languages and compare them to other forms of communication, smoke signals vs flag signals, code talkers vs Morris Code, Native Sign language to BSL.

Full credit for these Indigenous People's Day Activities to Juleeff. Thank you.

Activity

Explore the properties of a variety of materials to see which materials float and which materials sink.


Make your boats from the materials that float.

For the Boat Base: Balsa, Cardboard Box, Cd’s, Corks, Cupcake Cases, Feathers, Margarine Tubs, Match Sticks, Plastic Bottle Tops, Plastic Bottles, Lids Dishes and Plates, Sponges, Straws, Styrofoam, Twigs, Wooden Craft Sticks.

The Sail: Balloons, Card, Feathers, Foam Shapes, Leaves, Material, tissue paper

Compete: Hold a boat race. Can the sensory explorer predict the boat that will win?

Explore: Can you add cargo to your boat?

Test Durability: Add Ice cubes to the water. How well do the boats navigate these obstacles?

Engage in Scientific Investigation: Add salt to the water. Does this enable the boats and materials to float easier?


31st October
Halloween

Ten Fun Halloween Ideas

1. Use instruments to create a spooky orchestra: a boom whacker, drum, castanets, clackers, guiro, kazoo, triangle.


2. Using felt tips, draw spooky faces on balloons. Watch the faces distort as the balloon deflates over the next few days.


3. Paint a pumpkin.


4. Make a skeleton picture using cotton buds for bones.

6. Practice gross motor skills. Draw a large spider web in chalk outdoors. Randomly place paper spiders in the web. Can the sensory explorer walk along the lines of the web avoiding the spiders?


7. Make a 'Severed Finger' snack.

You will need

  • Hotdogs (Don't forget a meat -free alternative)

  • Garlic Flake

  • Ketchup

i. Using clean fingers halve a hotdog (this will give you an uneven (severed) end as opposed to cutting with a knife)

iii. Dip the 'severed' end of the hotdog (finger) into ketchup (blood)

iv. Is the sensory explorer brave enough to taste?


8. Raid the recycling and make broomsticks, hats, and magic wands.


9. Carve a pumpkin and place a tealight inside. Dim the lights in the classroom.
