Hi Leo,

there is a book like "Brown bear" for hearing--think it may be called "polar bear" and my all time favourite "Peace at Last".

There are lots of touchy feely books but not sure of any particular stories and the books are perhaps more suited to use by very small groups.

Smell? Really not sure about that one, activities yes stories no! But if you need a story I think I'd go for the cooking theme and cook something. You can feel it and taste it too. Lots of scope for cooking in Goldilocks, Little Red Hen, Gingerbread Man, Handa's surprise etc, etc.

Pace your delivery so that you are really confidant about the sense you have chosen for the week OFSTED are in and have fun!

Little Beaver and The Echo - animal and hearing.

Lucy's Picture would work for touch too.

I suppose you can get smell from most stories, just ask what they think the characters would be able to smell e.g. This is the bear - dustbin, dump, bath.

Peace at last – (we made a tape up of the sounds to go with this one)


Touch- Braille books

Taste – The little mouse red ripe strawberry and big hungry bear-

Don & Angela wood (Childs Play)
