Sensory Workshops 2019-2020

After feedback from the extended schools questionnaires in June 2019 it was clear there was a need to focus on sensory activities and developing play as an extended schools activity. Multi-sensory and play activities are designed to involve the use of auditory, visual and kinaesthetic-tactile pathways.  Research shows that sensory play builds nerve connections in the brain’s pathways, which leads to the child ability to complete more complex learning tasks.  Sensory play supports language development, cognitive growth, fine motor and gross motor skills, problem solving skills and social interaction.  We held two Saturday sensory workshops during the year which where well attended and enjoyed by all.  The feedback from parents, children and staff was very encouraging. Have a look at the photos below.
