Music and Movement

Music needs to be introduced in a variety of ways - from quiet music which can soothe and relax, to fast tempo music for physical and imaginative play. Research shows that even in the womb babies respond to sound vibrations and the familiar voices they have heard.

Supporting children to be confident and relaxed with musical activities begins many aspects of their learning and development within the EYFS.

Resources can be inexpensive and home made with the most valuable resource being the voice.

There are endless opportunities to experience music with children of all ages and this toolkit will give some ideas and suggestions.  Music can be experienced both indoors and outdoors with home made, natural or manufactured equipment.
