Welcome toSt Nicholas Church of England Primary Academy


What can our hands do?

If you have had a go at the challenges in the powerpoint or find you do not have a paperclip  then here are some extra challenges for you!


  1. Draw an outline of the human body. Identify and label which parts of the body provide our five main senses: sight, smell, hearing, taste and touch.
  2. Put one hand in a bowl of icy cold water and the other in hand-hot water for 30 seconds. What can you feel? Take both hands out and put them straight into a bowl of lukewarm water. What can you feel this time?
  3. Find a partner and draw letters with your finger on different parts of their body, such as the palm of their hand, back, cheek or even the soles of their feet. Where were they best at feeling and identifying the letters?
