Thematic Units (PMLD)

PMLD Sensory Thematic Units

Perfect Picnic Fun

In this unit learners gain an awareness of what happens at a picnic. This awareness is developed and embedded through a range of carefully planned and personalised sensory experiences such as poetry, stories, songs, games and musical experiences.

These activities are suggestions only. You can adapt or extend them to suit your learners’ age, cognitive ability and specific needs.

Please note: before beginning an activity, check that all the resources are suitable for your individual learners. For example, some essential oils may not be appropriate for young children and others may have contraindications for learners with complex medical needs, life-threatening conditions and/or epilepsy. It is advisable to consult a trained therapist before using essential oils.
