Think up animals that move in different ways - curl up and stretch like starfish, slither like sea snakes, wriggle like tadpoles, hop like frogs and scamper like lizards. Choosing a theme can help spark imaginations, like ocean or jungle.
Episode 7: Developmental Patterns and Creative Movement with Skye Reynolds
Creative Skills Manager Heather Armstrong spoke with dance artist and creative movement practitioner Skye Reynolds.
We have split their conversation into two sections: the first episode focuses on developmental patterns and how children learn through movement, the second takes this learning and explores how we can use it to deliver creative movement experiences.
