In Elm class we follow a widely recognised Yoga programme, specifically for children. We provide twice weekly sessions, which last approximately 15 minutes.
For adults and children alike, Yoga is a brilliant way to develop coordination. As yoga poses work to use a range of muscles, children find their body working in symmetry, improving body coordination and encouraging motor development. This supports the prime areas of developement in the strands of Personal, Social and Emotional Developement and Physical Developemnt within the EYFS Framework and Devlopment Matters.
After each yoga session, the children's attention, behaviour and concentration are improved, allowing better focus, and ready for more learning!
