Our Sensory Club is run by school staff. Our aim is to provide a Creative Sensory Club designed to promote physical health and emotional wellbeing, to develop children’s personal and social skills, build their confidence and improve their self-esteem through the enjoyment of expressive, creative and recreational activities.
Sensory Club is primarily for pupils with additional needs, low self-confidence or particular social or emotional issues, and priority is given to these pupils. Attendance is by invitation only but we aim to give as many children as possible the opportunity to join in the sessions during their time at Muskham. Each session includes activities using large construction kits, sensory equipment and soft play. In addition, we offer a wide range of creative tactile activities which meet children’s sensory needs such as art and cooking.
This year, our sensory club will be run in the Summer term, using our new sensory garden (weather permitting!). There will be a sensory club for Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3 in Summer 1 and a sensory club for Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 in Summer 2.
