World Book Day at Special Needs School

Myself and two friends volunteered to plan and teach at a Roald Dahl world book day.

We decided to base our sessions on the book George’s Marvellous Medicine as we felt that it would provide the best source for interactive sensory learning.

Throughout the day the children were to move around different classrooms so that they could experience all different books written by Roald Dahl. This meant that we had to make our activities suitable for children from the ages of 4 to 19 years old all who had varied needs.

Below is our plan for our activity.

However, some students with autism who did not like the feel of certain textures struggled with this. Therefore, I would adapt the sensory objects for future reference to cater each child.

Here is a link to a report within the Southport Visitor Newspaper.
