Write Dance movements are designed to help children feel happy and comfortable with their bodies, improving their motor skills and providing a strong foundation for writing. Ranghild Oussoren developed the approach in Holland ten years ago and it has gone on to capture the imagination of children and teachers across Europe. In this brand new, fully revised edition, the author shows how the programme has developed through years of experience. The new edition provides practitioners with a package of songs, stories and illustrations, as well as guidance on implementing Write Dance in their setting. The book and audio CD introduces the nine themes of the Write Dance approach at the appropriate developmental level for children aged 4-8. The programme supports the Be Healthy, Enjoy and Achieve outcome of the Every Child Matters agenda. It also links to the following aspects within the six areas of learning in the Early Years Foundation stage: - Creative Development through imaginative play, music and dance - Physical Development through movement using equipment and materials - Communication, Language and Literacy through handwriting - Personal Social and Emotional Development through increasing self-confidence and self-esteem This exciting and innovative programme benefits all children, but has also been found very helpful for children with special education needs, from learning difficulties to dyspraxia.
