Fun Spanish classes for little ones

Why are our classes so active?

Forget about children sitting still and repeating words in a foreign language...our Spanish classes are so dynamic that help kids stay active and healthy!

According to the British Council “ children are spending less time playing physically , mixing with different generations, creating imaginary games, and interacting with parents” .

Lin Marsh, who is a highly regarded composer, specialised in vocal works for young people, explains that all too often she has observed professionals asking children to “sit down and listen” rather than encouraging them to experiment with their bodies and natural reactions to music. Lin believes that By communicating freely with the voice, face, and body, children learn to express ideas with confidence, empathise with others from different cultures and backgrounds, and feel at home in their own skin. Song, music and dance can help children become more imaginative, self-aware and collaborative global citizens.” To read more about this click here

At Bilingual Beats we love hearing feedback from parents, teachers, nursery staff, managers and most importantly children. We particularly pride ourselves in how easily the little ones pick up a second language and this is down to our approach to bilinguism. A key feature of our lesson plans is the focus our teams put into not only delivering Spanish and French classes, but the massive input movement and music have in said sessions.

According to another study by Evridiki Zachopoulou, Aggeliki Tsapakidou and Vassiliki Derri about the effects of a developmentally appropriate music and movement program on motor performance , it has been proven that basic motor skills development is accomplished by the application of a variety of physical education modules. The study culminated that “ a developmentally appropriate music and movement program can positively affect jumping and dynamic balance of preschool children” .

That’s why in our classes we offer opportunities to develop fine and gross motor skills by delivering a lot of movement activities. Activities to develop gross motor skills include marching to the beat and variations such as marching to double the beat /half beats, jumping upbeat, activities involving dancing and freezing keeping the position and balance, dancing moving just one leg/one arm and then the other, etc. To develop fine motor skills we invite children to play instruments with just their fingertips, to move small parts of their body to the rhythm of the music, and much more.

Our programme is also inspired on the EYFS educational parameters. Our classes try to contribute towards the development of the 7 areas of the EYFS framework. There is a whole area dedicated to Physical Development and it is with no doubt that our classes have a huge input on the development of that area. Another area is Expressive Arts and Design and one of its purposes is to monitor and support children sing songs and make music and dance. Children are able to represent their own ideas, thoughts and feelings through music and dance, and we provide opportunities for that.
