This afternoon the children wanted to dance to some music so we decided to put Jump jam a physical activity/dance we use with our morning children on to explore.
Our afternooon children started off by watching with curiosity as the small jump jam routine played, and as they developed understanding of how it worked they began to join in.
During the afternoon we continued to play the same song as we felt the repetition of one routine would help them to develop the confidence to take a risk and give the moves a go.
The children were very creative and got the ukelele to play when the jump jam man pretended to play his guitar. That’s good thinking, he pai koe ki te whakaaro pena.
All the children enjoyed spending time watching the small clip as they strived for accuracy each time they gave the moves ago.
