A song and dance
11 January 2010Add to My Folder
In the last of this mini dance and movement series, NES provides activity ideas based around this month’s theme of ‘Nursery rhymes’
It is important to encourage positive attitudes about physical activity in young children in order to avoid the development of unhealthy, inactive behaviour. By making dance and movement sessions exciting and varied, children will build up a real sense of enjoyment and satisfaction and have the confidence to spend more time exploring how their bodies can move.
Incorporating nursery rhymes into physical activity is a perfect, fun way to get little ones moving around and expressing themselves. Furthermore, it helps with the development of their vocabulary, ready for when they start school.
Louise Hanson considers how you can use nursery rhymes in dance and movement.
