Sensory Rhyme Time

During sensory rhyme time we sing songs that are accompanied by different sensory experiences. Sensory rhyme time is a great opportunity to develop skills in all areas including communication, physical development and engagement. It can also build anticipation through your child anticipating what will happen with each resource when they see it and hear the associated song.

Have a look at your child’s Personal Learning Plan and Individual Planning to see what their sensory rhyme time targets are.
