Webinar Duration: 45 minutes (approx.)
This webinar will provide senior leaders, SENCOs, mental health leads and teaching staff with practical guidance and advice on how to use sensory activities and brain breaks to support children’s learning in the classroom.
Sensory activities and breaks from the classroom are an important part of the day for children in order to allow them to de-escalate, address regulation, re-focus attention and solidify learning. School can be stressful and research shows the brain needs movement, motion, and hands-on experience to learn.
In this webinar, Karen Pilling, SEND expert and acting deputy head with an extensive background leading on SEN training in schools, explains how and why sensory activities and brain breaks should be implemented throughout the day and the types of strategies which can be most beneficial.
