In Owls Room, Saphari and Natan participated in a sensory activity. Gemma brought out a sensory ball, this ball lights up a very bright pink/purple colour, which made Natan curious and prompted him to take part in the activity. He walked straight over to the ball and placed both of his hands on top to feel the texture. Saphari on the other hand was a little bit more cautious of the activity, Gemma persuaded Saphari to come closer to the ball, which she did. She then watched Natan as he played with the ball, and decided it would be fun for her to join in. Saphari picked up a shape and looked through it whilst laughing at Natan. She then put it on top of the sensory ball and the shape lit up, Saphari and Natan were both amazed by this and continued putting more shapes on the ball.
