Sensory Learning

At Moorside Academy we are very aware of how the environment affects our senses and well-being. Every Friday afternoon is Sensory afternoon when the emphasis is on providing children with activities to develop their sensitivity to the environment around them and towards each other.

Sensory activities include using our purpose built Sensory Room, purpose built Sensory Garden, sewing and craft activities, messy play, and dance.

These are small group activities led by skilled staff. They are popular with children and very beneficial to their wellbeing.
