It is important to find out from your students what helps them to calm down. It’s a small space so potentially making it into a chill out zone – with some beanbags and low level lighting. Much of the larger sensory equipment is rarely used well to support regulation and things like a bubble tube can be easily broken. Maybe a disco ball with light if you can hang it high enough from the ceiling that the children can’t reach it. It will be super important to consider safety. A hanging bar (chin up bar) could be useful – look in gym equipment rather than sensory.
Given they are older, larger playground equipment/exercise equipment will likely be a better shout for movement to support regulation – e.g. fixed bicycle, treadmill.
