I move; therefore I am – Movement for thinking and learning

Aims and objectives - Delegates will have opportunities to:

  1. learn about infant brain development and movement in a fun and accessible way.
  2. consider the risks in physical development including increased sedentary and challenging behaviours.
  3. consider their own environment and practice in supporting active learning and increased physical play.

Physical activity is a must for everyone including young children and being active has a wealth of benefits. Children should not be learning to sit still and focus but using the full capabilities of movement to think and learn. This course turns learning on its head and offers fun, healthy and appropriate ways to move across the early the early years’ curriculum. It gets practitioners moving as well into to a new way of thinking about fidgeting, wiggling, wriggling and roaming.
