Rhythm & rhyme
On a Friday morning we have a Rhythm and Rhyme session. This is led by a fully qualified dance teacher, Ruth Goodwin, who inspires both the boys and girls in a session of music and movement.
Using a selection of nursery rhymes and pop music, Ruth encourages the children to develop their rhythm and listening skills, to follow simple instructions and to understand the discipline of taking turns. She uses singing, counting and physical movement to enhance all of these.
Ruth’s aim is for all the children to be able to skip before they go to school. Something that can seem so easy, actually requires a lot of co-ordination, balance and muscle strength!
A voluntary contribution is requested from the parents/carers to go towards the cost of this.
