Senses make sense
22 January 2010Add to My Folder
The idea that we should ‘open our eyes’ and be aware of what is going on around us is not a new one (Isaiah 60: 4) and can be taken both literally and metaphorically. We want children to use their senses to be aware of and appreciate the world around them, but we would also wish them to be open emotionally and spiritually.

Main assembly (Preview)
This assembly is taken from Assemble and sing! For Ages 5-7 by Paul Noble and Stuart Watkinson (Scholastic, 978 0439945752, £30).
Our senses – sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste – are how we come to understand and interpret the world around us.
Music for assembling
Edward Elgar, ‘Salut d’Amour’ (3’ 56’’) is a pretty tune devoid of melancholy.
