  1. Dear Knit chick, this is my first ever post on TES so here goes.
    Did you ever teach your unit on Harry potter? I've about to try and do the same with a very similar class (KS3 P2-P5). Do you have any resources or ideas. I know that this was posted a while ago so hope I get a reply!

    Oliver Twist might be a good one as it would link in with the London theme.

    Nasen have published a journal by Keith Parks which talks about using Oliver Twist as an interactive sensory story with pupils, including those with PMLD. The journal also includes references to other journals which explore using Dickens with pupils with SEN. An example of how to conduct the session and sensory objects you could use are included in the journal, but you could change this to suit your children.

    The journal can be found here: http://www.nasen.org.uk/uploads/publications/224.pdf
