IPC – We designed our own toy/book in year two.

L.I. I know about the senses. In year two we designed a book or toy for a young child that includes sensory elements, e.g. squeakers, mirrors, bright colours, pictures, patterns, textures, smells, moving parts, etc. Please have a look at the results!   https://www.ambrosolischool.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/IMG_1079.mp4 https://www.ambrosolischool.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/WIN_20200507_12_49_51_Pro.mp4 https://www.ambrosolischool.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/VID_20200506_100926.mp4 https://www.ambrosolischool.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/IMG_3519_854x480.mp4 Like this:Like Loading...
