Making stories move: movement interjections for Bookbug Sessions with Hayley Earlam

Learning type: Professional learning
Category: Get inspired
Programme: Bookbug
Language: English
Audience: Professionals

Children are natural movers, they constantly need to wiggle, stretch their ever-growing bodies and explore the space around them. Through all this wiggling, stretching and exploring, their brains are developing too. This resource aims to support practitioners and care-givers with fun and engaging movement-based tasks which can be inserted anywhere within your story setting.


About the Youth Arts Fund

We gratefully acknowledge funding from Creative Scotland's Targeted Youth Arts Fund, which enabled Scottish Book Trust to commission mentors, artists and a young emerging artist to work alongside early years practitioners and families. Through working with artists and mentors, we have been able to develop a suite of specialist resources that support and enhance the principles of early book-sharing and music-making for use by the wider Bookbug community. The mentors gave support to Bookbug practitioners working with target groups of children and families through our Bookbug for the Home programme, addressing concerns around additional support needs and English as an additional language.
