4th September: Autumn Term

Communication Passport/All About Me Sensory Boxes

These are Communication Passports/All About Me profiles in the form of a box filled with sensory items that tell another person about an individual.

They help people involved in the person's life to learn and understand more about the person, their likes and sensory preferences, build bonds and aid communication.


  • Fill your box (a shoebox is the perfect size) with sensory items relating to the person's life.

  • If working in an educational setting you can use the student's communication passport as a tool to help you do this, as well working with the student to find out their personal likes and sensory preferences.

  • If working with adults, involve the person and also ask their family, friends and other people who have been involved in their lives to help you.

  • Keep the boxes up to date e.g., new items can be added as the person encounters new experiences (a seashell from a seaside trip)


Below is example of a box but you can take the concept and change the headings.


  1. Me: I have used a mirror. Shatterproof, safety mirrors are advisable, but depending on the individual, these bike mirrors that strap onto the wrist are great for a hands-free option and promote self-awareness.

  2. Born: This could be an item relating to the person's identity. In this example, the person was born in Manchester and enjoys going to the home matches, so I represented this using a football scarf.

  3. Family: A photograph or a drawing.

  4. Dad: This person adores their Dad, so I took a piece of clothing and spritzed their Dad's aftershave on it (this could be a tie, sock, tshirt)

  5. Music: This person's favourite instrument is a wrist bell. You could change this category to another activity such as a pot of bubbles or favourite fiddle toy.

  6. Relaxation: This person enjoys a hand massage so their box would include a hand cream in their favourite scent. You could also include a massage brush/roller

  7. Holiday: This person has returned from a holiday in Fuerteventura over the summer and this magnet signifies their holiday. The magnet has an embossed sunshine and palm trees which are nice to run the fingers over and talk about, and I placed some euro coins into the box to explore with the magnet.

  8. Future Event: This person is going to their brother's wedding in November. They will be wearing a bow tie.

The communication passport/sensory boxes are featured in the 'Multisensory Storytelling & Sensory Activities' workshop.



8th September: International Literacy Day

Explore Phonics through the Senses: Sensory Phonics Bag

Exploring phonics through the senses is a fun and engaging activity.

Here are some ideas using the letter 'S' as an example.

  1. Place a variety of sensory items starting with the letter(s) you wish to explore into a non-see-through bag or a pillowcase.

  2. Choose items that engage the five main senses.

  3. Offer the bag to the sensory explorer to select an item. Can they use their senses to guess what the item is? (If the sensory explorer is unsure then provide plenty of clues.)

Letter 'S' items

  • Satsuma

  • Snake

  • Spaghetti

  • Straw

  • Soap

  • Strawberry

  • Stick

  • Sponge

  • Sunflower Seeds

  • Spinach

  • Sprout

  • Sand

  • Starfish

Build Functional Language skills.

Can the sensory explorer tell you or show you what you might do with the item and where you might find it?

(If the sensory explorer is unsure, model)

Keep Language Simple. Focus on phrases such as 'Choose' or 'Take one' when presenting the bag to the sensory explorer.

Focus on the name of the object; 'starfish', 'sponge', and two-word phrases; 'yellow sponge'

Building Word Recognition

  • Place wooden or magnetic letters next to the corresponding item in your sensory bag e.g., the letters c-a-p, cap, c-a-r, car, f-a-n, fan, h-a-t, hat.

  • Can the sensory explorer sound out the letters as they select them from the bag?

  • Can the sensory explorer arrange the letters in the correct order to spell the word? e.g., f-a-n

  • Place two items in the bag along with the letters that spell the word e.g., c-u-p. One item will be the correct item (the cup) and an incorrect item (a hat). Can the sensory explorer select the correct item to match the word?


Phonics Sensory Bin

A sensory bin is a container filled with themed items that provide a calming activity and the opportunity to learn through exploration whilst engaging the senses and meeting sensory needs.


Setting up a Letter 'S' Phonics Sensory Bin

Layer your tray/bin/box with sand, seeds, straw, sawdust, spaghetti, or soil.

Scatter with items starting with the letter 'S' (see the previous list for ideas)

Add fine motor tools: c

ups, spoons, forks, measuring jugs, colander, whisk, sieve, funnel, pipette, tongs, wooden utensils, scoops, paintbrushes, chopsticks.

Add items to encourage scientific investigation: torch, magnifying glass, magnets, pen/paper, egg carton/ice cube/cake baking tray for sorting items, plastic tweezers.

Model mark making the letter 'S' in the base layer of the sensory bin.

Phonics Listening Game

Listening games teach sound discrimination, promoting the development of language, communication and comprehension skills and increasing attention span.

A quick search on the internet will provide you with access to a library of free audio clips and sound effects that can be played via your phone, iPad, Kindle or recorded on a Dictaphone.

There are also sound effect apps available.

  • Can the sensory explorer imitate the sound using their voice?

  • Can the sensory explorer correctly identify the sound? (Provide plenty of clues!)

Letter 'S' Sounds

  • Snake

  • Sneeze

  • Sealion

  • Siren

  • Saxophone

  • Snoring

  • Stream

  • Seagull

  • Seal

  • Storm

  • Squeak

  • Sea

Get Crafty! Stuffed Sensory Sock Snakes

This is an excellent activity for encouraging hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills and gives you the opportunity to model language as well as providing a wonderful sensory experience.

You will need

  • Old Socks or Tights

  • A Filler: Straw/sponges/sand/sawdust/soil/spaghetti (dried)

Activity

  1. Stuff the socks with items starting with the letter 'S'; sand, seeds, straw, sawdust, (dried) spaghetti, or soil.

  2. Tie a knot in the end of the sock to secure.

  3. Allow free exploration of the sensory snakes, they will differ in weight, length, smell and texture.

Tip!

Adding a few drops of essential oil to the fillers will enrich the experience.


Use a range of Letter Resources.

I like to teach using tactile items. It makes learning fun and allows the student to manipulate and explore the letters and make words without having to write them down.

Here are a few ideas:

  • Wooden letter tiles

  • Scrabble board and tiles

  • Magnetic letters on a baking tray.

  • Paint pebbles and write letters on them.

  • Use letter stickers

  • Write in chalks on the patio/fence.

  • Write letters on recycled plastic milk bottle tops.

  • Mould letters using clay/plasticine or Play-Doh


Sept 9th World First Aid Day

Explore the contents of a First Aid Bag/Box This activity will raise awareness of the contents of a first aid box and reduce any anxiety some individuals may have around first aid.

  • Explore the contents of the first aid box.

  • Practice applying dressings and bandages.

  • Discuss how to raise the alarm should there be an incident

  • Discuss when and how to ring 999 for an ambulance. Engage in role play practicing making a 999 telephone, call using an old mobile phone (battery removed)

First Aid Box Contents*

  • Burns gel dressings

  • Adhesive tape to secure dressings

  • An updated first aid guidance leaflet.

  • Sterile plasters of assorted sizes

  • Large and medium-sized sterile, individually wrapped, unmedicated wound dressings

  • Sterile eye pads

  • Triangular bandage

  • Disposable gloves

  • Foil blanket

  • Sterile wound wipes

  • Finger dressing

*The contents of your first aid boxes may differ to the items in the list.


Sept 11th

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 3

  2. Grease and line the bottom of a cake tin with greaseproof paper.

  3. Melt the honey, butter, water and sugar in a pan.

  4. Remove from the heat and mix in the flour and (beaten) eggs

  5. Transfer to the cake tin.

  6. Bake for 40 minutes until the cake is golden brown.

  7. Place onto a wire rack.

A Honey Dipper

Guess the Item!

Give the sensory explorers a wooden honey dipper to explore but do not tell them what it is.

Can the sensory explorers guess what the utensil is used for?

Can the sensory explorers use their fine motor skills to remove honey from a jar using the honey dipper?



Explore the Shofar Horn

This is one of the world's oldest wind instruments (record an audio clip or watch a video of a shofar horn being played)

  • Can the sensory explorers join in by playing a wind instrument e.g., recorder, whistle, or a harmonica?

Promote the development of the mouth muscles.

  • Discuss how to raise the alarm if they smell or see smoke or fire.

  • Identify the nearest exit should the alarm sound

A note for schools

  • The new school term brings with it the inevitable fire drill. For some students, the fire alarm provides unwanted sensory feedback and the fire drill itself can be unsettling as it is out of routine. Have a 'fire drill' bag in easy reach in readiness for fire drill. This could contain ear defenders, a NOW/NEXT board showing what is happening and some fiddle toys/motivators.

Extend Learning

  • Look in the classroom for potential fire risks (electric heaters, electrical equipment, plug sockets)

23rd September

Autumn Equinox

'At the bottom of my garden underneath the apple trees,

I heard a little rustle, amongst the autumn leaves

A sudden gust of wind, blew the leaves apart

And what I saw inside those leaves, lightened up my heart'


Make an Autumn Sensory Box


Here's a picture of my Autumn sensory box. I added an assortment of leaves (including dried bay leaves, curry leaves, lime leaves and fresh sprigs of rosemary and thyme to enhance the sensory experience), a colour changing light cube, straw to represent the Autumn harvest, a nail brush and koosh to represent hedgehogs, a talking tile with a recording of a hedgehog, a piece of bark and pinecones. My hedgehogs were made from Play-Doh with dried spaghetti spikes (a great activity to promote fine motor skills)

Pop a magnifying glass and torch in there too to promote scientific investigation.


You can simplify the activity by adding less items.

Organic September

Make an Organic Farm Sensory Wall Display

Making a sensory wall display is a gradual process that everyone can participate in.


Make you craft items during your art/craft sessions and watch as your working farm, sensory wall grows!


Make the Fences: Lay three, thin strips of brown card vertically then glue a strip of card diagonally across the three strips.

Add the Crops and Fields: Glue the textured items onto A4 thin card, covering with a thin layer of PVA then staple onto your wall: Grass,

Yellow Field: Split Peas

Orange Field: Lentils

Pale Green Field: Split Peas Add a Barn: Use wooden sticks for a 3D effect.

Add Haybales: Cover a piece of thin card with PVA glue. Add the straw. Leave to dry. Add a layer of PVA glue to set in place. Leave to dry then cut into rectangular bales.

Add Farm Animals: Provide animal templates for sensory explorers to decorate using sensory items e.g. A duck: yellow feathers, a chicken: red, brown, and black feathers, a sheep: cotton wool balls, a pig: pink felt or suede

Add Crops: ¾ fill a clear, disposable plastic cup/biodegradable plant pot with potting compost.

Plant your seeds into the soil (Nasturtiums and peas work well). Ensure they are watered regularly and are not left to go dry.

Staple the pots to the wall. The beans/peas will trail downwards as they grow.

(Tip! Wet kitchen roll or a wet paper towel are a substitute for soil) Add a Duck Pond: A circle of unbreakable ‘mirror’ or circle of aluminium foil.

Add Farmyard Sounds: Record farmyard noises on Talking Tiles (or similar devices) place a picture of the object/animal on the device Press the device to bring the farm to life!

Assign Roles on the Farm: The crop farmers can oversee the watering of the plants in the cups, the sheep farmers will be responsible for keeping the sheep tidy.

Sept 29th - 6th October Sukkot

Sukkot is a Jewish festival. The word ‘Sukkot’ translates to a ‘temporary shelter’


Build a Sukkot Hut

Den building provides an excellent opportunity to explore design and technology through building and construction, the opportunity to explore, experiment, make mistakes and problem solve in a safe environment, promotes physical development and co-operation, turn-taking, listening to others' ideas and communication skills through teamwork. Dens can be built using everyday items found around the home and garden. Here are some examples:

  • Use items found in nature: straw, hay, dried grasses, twigs, and sticks.

  • Work around existing features such as a play equipment, trees, a gazebo, or a washing line.

  • If indoors, drape a sheet or blanket over two chairs, a table, or underneath open stairs.

Families eat and spend free time in their Sukkot shelters. Accessorise your Sukkot

  • Add cushions, beanbags, books, activities, soft toys, and a blanket.

  • Add crayons/pencils/felts and paper/whiteboard and marker pen.

  • String fairy lights, add glow in the dark stickers, glitter lamps and light up toys.

  • Add items to encourage scientific investigation: a torch, mirror, magnifying glass.
