A collection of short but complete pieces of music to use in Early Years and KS1 settings.
Dancing is like dreaming with your feet!' Constanze Mozart
Flora Sheringham compiled this wonderful resource in 2002 which was then called Little Pieces. This interesting collection brought together some musical gems with which to enhance delivery of dance within EYFS strand ‘Expressive Arts and Design’ and with progression to Dance at KS1. The pieces were chosen specifically to enable listening and responding through dance and are taken from a wide range of styles, genres and traditions.
Listening, moving and making dances often go together… so this resource has been designed to be an aid to developing a discriminatory ear and a sensitive movement response.' Flora Sheringham
This exciting resource has now been updated, adopting many of Flora’s insightful ideas and music choices. Dream with your Feet is now available online with detailed practitioners’ notes, offering creative ideas, not only for initiating dance and movement, but also providing cross-curricular activities to connect music and movement to the EYFS Framework and the wider KS1 curriculum. The activities are aimed at the generalist: they are practical, concise, accessible … ‘pick up and go’ materials. The EYFS Framework and KS1 curriculum notes were written by Sue Nicholls. The dance notes were created by Karen Bailey.
