Sensory Story: We are Knights!

I wanted to do a more fun sensory story. Heavily inspired by Pete Wells And his very funny sensory stories I wrote “We are Knights” for our History topic. Just a bit of fun but I have included suggested sensory resources, movement opportunities and some follow up activities around positional language. As with all my stories they are written for a PMLD group. Once a week I teach an autism specific class and have this in mind when writing these special stories.

I usually use photos for the booklet but I couldn’t find suitable ones so I have used a minecraft theme. Scroll down to download free mp3 sound effects, an animated powerpoint, the story as a free printable booklet and a story mat. These are free to download but please share this page if you have found it useful.

We are Knights: The Story

We are knights, we are knights!
Brave and strong we love to fight.

Hang on a sec I’ve lost my sword.
It’s shiny, long, and made of steel
Oh there it is behind that wheel.

We are knights, we are knights!
Brave and strong we love to fight.

Hang on a sec I’ve lost my helmet
With a feather on top, it protects my head
Oh there it is underneath my bed.

We are knights, we are knights!
Brave and strong we love to fight.

Hang on a sec I’ve lost my shield
It’s painted with a scary red lion.
Oh there it is on top of Brian.

We are knights, we are knights!
Brave and strong we love to fight.

Hang on a sec I’ve lost my horse
It’s tall and brown covered in hair.
Oh look its hiding under that chair.

We are knights, we are knights!
Brave and strong we love to fight.

Hang on a sec I’ve lost my flag.
Huge bright fabric waving in the air
Oh look someone left it on the stairs.

We are knights, we are knights!
Brave and strong we love to fight.

Hang on a sec I’ve lost my gloves
Chain mail made of metal rings
Oh look there they are behind the king!
(Edit this verse has been cut from the powerpoint for length)

We are knights, we are knights!
Brave and strong we love to fight.

The King on his throne commands
“The situation really is quite dire
You must fight the dragon and his fire!”

We are knights, we are knights!
Brave and strong we love to fight.

Just um.. Little, tiny enemies
Not dragons big and scary!
I can fight mice, small and furry.

We are knights, we are knights!
Mice and earthworms we will fight.

We need to come up with a plan
We will make the dragon tea.
Ask him nicely to let us be.

You knights are a disgrace
Go on shoo.. Leave this place.
