Description Music inspires movement, especially in young children. Through movement and music, we can build skills in all the essential learning areas: language, auditory, motor, creativity, social, visual, memory, as well as musical. Foundation skills in these areas build important connections in the brain and help a child prepare for formal learning, including developing literacy

This workshop will gently take you through a mix of songs and activities to encourage children’s active participation.  Tango with a Mango, stomp with dinosaurs, and build roads with the diggers and pavers.   Songs in the workshop promote laterality and independent movement of each side of the body.    Develop balance and movement in activities appropriate for young children. We encourage children to cross mid-lines and in doing so, we are helping them access both sides of their brains, which is important for school work.  Think about what is required in order for a child to write a story.  He needs to have imagination and visualisation which are right brain functions, but he also needs the vocabulary and understanding of spelling to be able to write the story down.  His left and right brain must work together.  By building connections through physical movement we help integrate those brain areas to give your child greater success in school.
