Do you include music and singing in your setting?
Would you like to know how you can use songs to develop children’s feeling for pulse, rhythm and pitch? How do songs also simultaneously develop children’s language and literacy skills, confidence, listening, memory and retention?
Music learning has the fantastic ability to cover all aspects of EYFS goals and not only that gives children bags of confidence to carry on learning. It is shown to help develop maths and literacy skills in children whilst also building confidence and self-esteem. Being involved in music making also helps a range of fine and gross motor skills and spatial awareness, team work and sharing.
