Music and movement classes are offered within various nurseries in Newcastle Upon Tyne and within Sure Start settings. We also work within Primary schools in Northumberland and Newcastle Upon Tyne. We work on a different theme every week, this can be set within a theme a class is following and we also cover stories which are very popular within the early years. Sessions are planned using the Early Years Foundation Stage so that all sessions have to be flexible and support the development and learning of each child through a quality experience.

It is widely acknowledged that music can be used to aid a child's development in many key areas other than just musical ability.

Benefits of classes:

  • Develop bodily control
  • Develop spatial awareness
  • Develop concentration skills
  • Develop speaking skills
  • Develop listening skills
  • Aids language development
  • Counting songs provide useful building blocks towards future mathematical concepts
  • Develops social skills
  • Enhances self-esteem
  • Develops confidence

The children experience a wide range of songs endorsing the many cultures from which children come and we try to cover all of the important festivals.

Most important of all though is that the children enjoy the classes and have fun. Within our sessions various Musical Monkeez props are used to stimulate the child's imagination such as parachutes, fabrics, dancing hoops, puppets, pompoms, bubbles and most importantly musical instruments.
