Just before the Summer holidays, our school had a sensory path installed in our school corridor.
A sensory path is a series of guided movements for kids to follow, shown by markings on the ground or walls. As students follow the path and complete the movements, they work off excess energy and develop their gross motor skills.
They are a fun and engaging way for children to get their wiggles out, refocus during a transition, self-soothe after facing a difficult challenge, and get in some extra physical activity. These Sensory Paths are created to be colorful and playful.The routes provide creative opportunities for movement breaks that can help children to manage stress, hyperactivity or anxiety.The routes provide time for children to engage with their senses in a focused way, that has been proven to improve learning and memory.
Sincere thanks to Linda Maher from ‘Halls of Fun’ who helped us design the sensory path in our school.
