Foudation Stage PE:Dance/Movement Medium Term Plan: Ourselves/My body

This Medium Term plan links in with the theme: Ourselves and My body and was planned for a mixed Year R/1 class. The last two lessons are a bit more difficult and may be more suitable for Year 1. The children particularly enjoyed the lesson using the expression cards. I hope it is helpful!!
