Music and the Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework

Audience: All Early Years practitioners

From before the moment of birth music and movement are integral to the healthy growth of the child both as an individual and in connecting with others and the outside world. This course provides the means for practitioners to foster that growth during the baby stage, through the early years and beyond.

While it is stressed that music making is a holistic thing this course gives activities that specifically address the three prime and four specific areas of learning, the three learning characteristics and the four guiding principles specified in the EYFS.

Aims and objectives - Delegates will have opportunities to:

  • Gain a repertoire of tried and tested multicultural songs, games and rhymes that is rich in content and that children enjoy
  • Learn how to use this new material (and the songs they already know) to address each part of the EYFS statutory framework
  • Learn to provide opportunities for musical play and ideas for extending that play
  • Take away simple ideas and techniques that increase their confidence in their innate musicality including help with developing lively rhythm work and using instruments

There is a CD/booklet that contains the material in this course.
