Goal 5 - Create your own dance to a piece of music
First milestone: "Children respond to music, moving their bodies to sounds that they enjoy."
Second milestone: "Children begin to join in with actions to rhymes and songs as they grow in confidence e.g. ‘If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands’, sometimes copying a practitioner."
Third Milestone: "Children join in with actions and words for an increasing variety of rhymes and ring-games."
Fourth Milestone: "Children listen to a variety of music and begin to move rhythmically in response to music, sometimes using props such as ribbons and pom-poms"
Fifth Milestone: "Children explore a wide range of music from different cultural backgrounds and can begin to identify changes they hear e.g. loud, fast, slow, etc. They explore different ways of moving their bodies and can follow an adult’s lead."
Final Milestone: "Children create their own dance routine, moving in time to the pulse of the music being listened to and physically responding to changes in the music, e.g. jump in response to a loud / sudden change in the music. They perform to their friends."
