Music and Movement starts with involving children with action songs and nursery rhymes, children are encouraged to actively participate in being a ‘Little Bunny’, or “Winding the Bobbin Up”. Children experience different rhythms and have access to a range of music on the CD player and on musical instruments. They learn loud and soft, high and low etc.
Children participate in adult led music sessions, where they are encouraged to warm up their body and their voice before starting to use the musical instruments or to join in with the activities offered during this session. Time is spent on how to play the instrument correctly and how to get the best sound from their choice of drums, shaker etc.
We always have an indoor space available for Development Movement Play (the Hive ), where children can develop movement, and develop through movement. Developmental Movement Play (DMP) allows for crawling, rolling, pulling and pushing, going in, over and under things, and experimenting with the body in space (and as many other movements as the children can imagine). We encourage children to move freely and to become more aware of their bodies: instead of saying “no running indoors”, we support children in moving safely and considerately without losing the joy of being three and wishing to skip to the door and out into the garden.
