For more able students, they can press the on/off button on the fan and explore different wind strengths Bubbles! Disco lights, if you don’t have these fairy lights can work or torches with different coloured plastics/acetates stuck to the top of them to create different colours Chocolate spread on a spoon as a taster - or real ice cream if it’s a hot day can be great! (Ensure that you check for allergies/nil by mouth before offering) Vibrating massage tool or vibrating snake (this offers a wonderful sensory experience) Pharell’s ‘Happy’ song, or an agreed class favourite song and the disco lights - have a dance, have a twirl! A dark sheet to place over students, indicating night time This sensory story was delivered once a week for a half term and by the final couple of weeks students were beginning to anticipate elements of the story.
