We’re going walking around - A physical song for early years’ learners (0-5 year olds)

At last! Musicbuds is here offering an exceptional range of original and well-crafted resources underpinning common musical objectives whilst focused on prominent EYFS themes. Aimed at all Early Years’ practitioners from class teachers, music specialists, teaching assistants, playgroup leaders to EAL and SEND support teachers.

This versatile song uses really simple repetitive phrasing. It was written to help develop different ways of moving for children with Dyspraxia. Skipping, hopping, turning, marching are all movements that can be challenging for children with a Special Needs profile so this song is ideal for developing movement. The humorous backing track ensures that the children always enjoy participating in this song!

Can be used as a stand-alone physical song to develop bilateral integration (using two hands together with one hand leading the other e.g. walking) or as Song 8 in our 30-minute music and movement session.
