Movement to Promote Body Awareness

In each session, there is one song specifically focussed on body awareness.

This is a key learning objective important in helping children to become more independent with personal care and mobility.

In ‘Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes’ we repeat the song again and again using variety in the music speed and words used, allowing the children to practice the really challenging moves and helping to improve their coordination and body awareness.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In this clip, you can see how we combine song and movement to encourage rhythm. Here, Thomas is loving moving his body to the track, ‘Let’s Do It All Together’, which helps children to identify parts of their body.
