    Physical and Sensory Support w/b 11th Jan


    Some of our children usually attend sensory circuits, the purpose of this is to help to set children up for a school day.

    It enables children to reach the level of alertness needed to concentrate during lessons.

    Children participate in a 10-15 minute session of activities designed to improve brain processing efficiency, and they generally find that the circuit is a fun way to start the day. 

    At school we have specialist equipment but in the video and links below there are some suggestions of ways to recreate this at home without the  resources.

    Sensory Circuits activities

    Activities for attention and focus





    In this lesson we explore a range of movements through multi-sensory activities. Our sensory circuits are longer sessions and are designed to be enjoyed and explored over a full term. You may focus on one element of the session for several weeks before moving onto the next activity and eventually sequencing them together.

    This lesson aims to build understanding of weak gross motor skills and work towards developing a super strong core to help us for activities in daily life, school and play.


    In this lesson, we will be learning about how the weather changes and explore the different seasons using sensory activities and resources. The lesson requires full adult support.
