To celebrate Shrove Tuesday, the students of Seymour and St. Martin’s celebrated the day with plenty of sensory activities.
The activities in Seymour included an exploration of toppings using their senses; tasting sweet and savoury toppings, feeling different pancake textures and learning new signs.
After this Ellie, a student who particularly enjoys taking part in sport, organised for the department to hold a relay pancake flipping race. Students split into three groups and raced each other, complete with pancake flips mid-race.
Over in St Martin’s, the children worked with the staff to make some delicious pancakes. It was a great sensory experience allowing the young people to smell different toppings, listen to the whisks turning and flip the pancakes when they were finished.
Check out the students in action!
