Movement to Music

In movement to music sessions we have a really good dance!  We dance to a variety of different songs which each have a set action.  Adults working with the children support them to make the movements, giving different levels of support for each child.  Some children are given opportunities to make the movements with more independence.  I choose the actions to support children's development in different areas.  Some movements can support with personal care, such as rolling or raising arms, and others can help with developing MOVE skills such as stamping feet 1 at a time to encourage reciprocal leg movements in a walker.  


Below is this half term's session which you could try at home. All of the songs can be found on YouTube.
