The Language Through Movement Programme
What is the programme?
The programme is designed for primary school children aged 4- 11 years. It can be used to support children with gaps in their understanding or vocabulary or it can be used for children with English as an additional language.
What does it involve?
You will receive 4 boxes, packed full of resources such as board games, character cards, objects belonging to characters. There is no need to print or laminate, everything you need to compete the programme is in the boxes.
Why do we use movement?
We start by teaching pupils to know there they are in their environment before teaching then concepts such as 'directionality'. We explore visual scanning, where their starting position is.
We then build on more complex language as the children progress through the programme.
How is the programme different from other interventions?
You will be provided with a series of teaching videos, that explain the rationale behind the exercises, helping you to understand why a child may be having difficulty with a task and how this relates to the classroom and learning.
Each activity leads on from the other, allowing a natural progression in the complexity of the task.
How does it teach language?
We use a multi sensory approach to support language concepts, what do the objects feel like by using touch alone?
We encourage children to move in order to understand where their body is in relation to their environment.
Fun and engaging Problem solving activities.
Pupils are encouraged to work in teams, to complete problem solving tasks. Can they work out the patterns in order to open the padlocks?
Board Games to help consolidate language concepts.
