Reception 'Write Dance' lessons

Reception children at Ark John Keats have ‘Write Dance’ lessons each week. Write Dance is an approach developed by  Ragnhild Oussoren.  She based the method on ‘writing psychology’ from France, which can be traced to the late 19th century as well as ‘writing-teaching’ from Germany that dates back to the 1960s. The unique aspect of the programme is the use of music and dance.  This combination of rhythmic and then melodic pieces of music are chosen so the children can follow and learn specific movements to develop their physical skills including, balance, coordination, flexibility and stamina.
