Movement can play an important part in helping young pupils to understand music. Devise a series of dance and simple movement routines based on the examples given in the animations. There is an opportunity for some differentiation here as some movement sequences are more complex than others. Make sure that the students move in time to the music and that any movement patterns fit with the beat. This can be done as a whole class activity or working in small groups.
