SEN Teacher: Space Resources

Space and Planets Free Printable Resources

Space topic SEN free teaching resources collage

Space and Planets Theme Resources – Perfect for “World Space Week”. As with most of my resources a lot of these are designed to be laminated and with liberal use of velcro turned into repeatable folder tasks. My class all have a diagnosis of autism and communication difficulties. Half are PECS users. Some really enjoy worksheets (!!)  particularly maths based. I hope you find this page of free space topic worksheets useful. They can probably be adapted for early years or KS1.
