Join Hilary in this Developmental Dance Movement® (DDM)based session, part of the new MovementWorks On Demand Library.
What you can expect
Each DDM session contains music, singing and dancing starting with a warm up, followed by the main activities, then a cool down and ending with a craft activity. Clear instructions for the various activities are provided both verbally and using Makaton.
Who is it for?
Children with or without additional needs, aged 2 years and over.
How can this session be used?
This session can be used by Early Years providers (nurseries, childminders etc.), in playgroups, by parents/carers. A responsible adult needs to be present during the session and we would also recommend that when the session is used with a group of young children, there is a suitable ratio of adults to children.
About this session
Hilary guides the children as they ‘dance round the world, learning country names and practicing counting before visiting the zoo where they meet and move like various animals, and then ‘row’ home before cooling down with their favourite small soft toy. The session finishes with an optional craft activity where children (under the supervision of an adult) can make their own jellyfish.
NOTES RE: HEALTH AND SAFETY
- You should only participate if you are healthy enough to do so. Anyone who is pregnant or with a pre-existing medical condition should take advice from their medical practitioner.
- A responsible adult must be in the room at all times during the session to ensure the health and safety of any children or vulnerable adults taking part.
- You must make sure you are in a safe space free of trip hazards and obstructions to allow you to move around safely while being able to have a clear view of the screen to follow the teacher in the session.
But the most important thing of all... is to have FUN
