Henry's Senses

EYFS, KS 1. Early Years, First Stage.
Ages 3 - 7

DURATION: 45 mins - 55 mins

OVERVIEW:  Our story is about Henry (and his rat called beans) whose hobby is to learn about all the animals that he meets! Exploring habitats, big and small, Henry learns about senses and how animals use them with their surroundings. Children will be able to relate them to their own and have an opportunity to explore senses (but not taste, yuck) with some members of ZooLab’s animal team.

Key Workshop Objectives:

  • Explore how a selection of animals use their senses

  • Name a series of habitats and microhabitats

  • Discuss the characteristics of ZooLab’s animals

  • Encourage listening and participation

Why learn through storytelling?

Using storytelling as a mechanism in teaching involves structuring learning around a narrative. It helps children (and adults) make sense of issues and topics by engaging them in a story, making facts easier to remember and participants more open to learning.

The benefits of learning through storytelling does not stop at increasing knowledge of the subject area - storytelling encourages creativity, expands vocabulary, increases attention span and helps to reinforce morals.
