Leighs Calming Basket!


Recently in the Sweetpea room we have been focusing on having lots of relaxation time. We’ve created a calming basket which includes sensory bottles, sensory materials and a range of different stories.

This is so the children can access calming and chill experiences if they wish to at any point throughout the day. We promote this through small group or independent time, letting the children choose from the basket. This also gives the children a chance to express how they are feeling as they can point to the different emotion cards to express themselves.

Lots of love,

Everyone at Leighs xxx
