Linda Bance - Early Years: The Best Place to Start!

Let’s start at the very beginning… isn't that a song…??? 

Working musically with children between the ages of 4 and 6 is a joy. They are so hungry for stuff and love to join in learn and invent their own little creations.

This online workshop introduces motivating ideas that can steer children through a musical journey helping them to be melodic and strengthen their singing voices, be rhythmic and inventive with patterns and most importantly become creative little composers and inventors of material that us as adults could never in a million years have made up.

Whether you're new to teaching or more experienced and just looking for new fresh ideas, this Sunday afternoon exploration (with 30 minutes offline for personal reflection and development) helps to develop skills in facilitating creative exploration in the Early Years classroom. 

Be prepared to sing, move, invent and above all be silly!!!

This session supports...

  • steps to learning and links to the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum
  • pedagogy of childhood development
  • choosing engaging stimuli 
  • use of play and games as tools for learning
  • positive behaviours for learning
  • inclusive practice in Performing Arts teaching
  • sharing your own great practice within a small group context
