Play Scripts to support children in Early Years with SEND.
Play scripts can be highly beneficial for children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) for several reasons:
Language and Communication Skills: Play scripts offer opportunities to practice language and communication in a structured yet creative environment. Children can engage in dialogue, learn new vocabulary, and understand how to use language in different contexts.
Social Skills Development: Participating in plays helps SEN children develop important social skills. They learn to work cooperatively with others, understand social cues, and develop empathy by stepping into the roles of different characters.
Confidence and Self-Esteem: Being part of a play can significantly boost a child’s self-esteem and confidence. Achieving success in a performance, or simply being part of a group effort, can be very empowering.
Motor Skills and Coordination: Acting in a play often involves physical movement, which can help SEN children develop their motor skills and coordination in an enjoyable way.
Routine and Structure: Rehearsing and performing a play provides a routine and structure, which can be comforting and helpful for many SEN children who thrive on predictability.
Sensory Experience: Plays can engage a range of senses through visuals, sounds, and sometimes even tactile elements, which can be particularly beneficial for children with sensory processing issues.
Emotional Expression and Regulation: Acting allows children to express a range of emotions in a safe and controlled environment. It also helps them understand and regulate their own emotions better.
Creativity and Imagination: Play scripts encourage creativity and imagination, allowing children to explore different worlds, scenarios, and perspectives, which can be especially enriching for SEN children.
Cognitive Skills: Learning lines, understanding a script, and following a storyline can enhance cognitive abilities such as memory, attention, and comprehension.
Inclusivity and Accessibility: Many plays can be adapted to suit the specific needs and abilities of SEN children, making them an inclusive activity where every child can participate and contribute.

Phonics Phase 1 planning
This is great we have printed it out and we use daily for the Nursery children for a short Phonics activity. It has saved me loads of time and is really well thought out and each activity is clearly explained so the staff know what to do. Each time they teach Phonics they are becoming more confident with presenting.
This is so helpful to give to parents. A great help. Thanks
