Aimed at all Early Years’ practitioners from class teachers, music specialists, teaching assistants, playgroup leaders to EAL and SEND support teachers.
This song was written explicitly to help children cross their imaginary midline (essential in developing a ‘dominant’ hand) by making arcs with the rainbow ribbons. The repeated rhythms and gently undulating melody line support the development of the actions required and the modulation from major to minor adds harmonic interest to the music.
Can be used as a stand-alone rainbow song; a physical song to encourage children to cross their midline or as Song 9 in our 30-minute music and movement session.
