Masses of activities based on the premise that movement, particularly if it is specific and intentional, enhances learning. “Move to Learn” is a movement programme for children aged five to eight years, delivered in sessions, working one-to-one with an adult or as a small group. Use the programme to liven up a day, provide a ‘brain break’ in the curriculum or as a complete change for a pupil who is having an emotionally challenging day. Moving promotes learning and other outcomes will follow: Emotional – encouraging happy, secure, confident, motivated and positive emotional states in the limbic system of the brain to support a sense of well-being; Cognitive – using movement to create and strengthen neural pathways, to integrate brain activity and develop ‘whole brain’ learning; Motor – enabling children to develop their gross and fine motor skills, and to understand being active or calm and to know the difference; Social – using activities to have fun and play together, and to interact and build good relationships; and, Language – to encourage good listening skills and attending to instructions, and to learn to use self-talk to mediate learning.

The activities are arranged in ten sections to address different types of movement: Stamina; Large motor actions; Mobility; Balance; Body awareness; Spatial awareness; Dexterity; Fine motor skills; Rhythm and sequence; and, Relaxation. This title includes six sample lesson plans and forms for children’s evaluation, parents’ evaluation, teachers’ questionnaire and parents’ questionnaire.
