Provider: Brighton and Hove LA
Location: Committee Room 2 and 3 Brighton Town Hall, Bartholomew Square
This practical session is full of creative ideas for songs and stories, and how to combine them with drama, music and movement. With ideas for a range of ages, participants will practice different strategies and build their confidence in a friendly, supportive atmosphere. We’ll also consider how these experiences can promote young children’s characteristics of effective learning, and support ‘school readiness’ in positive, child-centered ways.
The day will include:
- Songs and musical games – inspirational ideas to suit a range of different ages to take away and use immediately
- Movement and drama – how to structure short groups, plan the right material and deal with difficulties
- Story-making – using well-known or made up stories based on children’s interests as a basis for movement, songs and music
- Making links to areas of learning and development, and in particular how these themes support young children’s personal, social and emotional development
