We are excited to announce that our new Sensory Room is now open! The provision will enable us to offer a more inclusive environment, supporting children who attend our setting. We envisage that the room and its resources will support children in the following ways:
By encouraging the children to engage and explore the environment and to have positive effects on their ability to react and interact with the world around them.
Enhance learning through play
Following on from this, sensory stimulation will engage different areas of the brain, helping children absorb and retain more information.
Sensory and physical exploration of the environment will help children to develop perceptual and spatial awareness and also to improve balance and movement.
Supporting emotional wellbeing and behaviour / PSED
By providing a sense of calm and comfort, helping children learn to self-regulate their behaviours.
Communication and Language
Attention and listening skills will be supported as children tune into isolated sounds, sights and textures. Sound responsive resources will encourage children to experiment with vocalisation and communication.
The development of the sensory environment links with key areas within our School Development Plan
