'Write dance is a unique programme with links across the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. Not only does it help to develop the prerequisite physical skills and co-ordination for writing, it also encourages creativity, self expression and confidence' - Chris Dukes, Early Years Area Senco

Write Dance is an exciting and innovative programme which uses music and movement to introduce handwriting to children. Write Dance movements are designed to help children feel happy and comfortable with their bodies, improving their motor skills and providing a strong foundation for writing.

Ranghild A. Oussoren developed the approach in Holland ten years ago and it has gone on to capture the imagination of children and teachers across Europe. In this new edition of Write Dance in the Early Years, practitioners are provided with a package of songs, stories and illustrations, as well as guidance on implementing Write Dance in their early years setting.

This book, audio CD and DVD introduces the nine themes of the Write Dance approach at the appropriate developmental level for the early years. The programme supports the Be Healthy, Enjoy and Achieve outcome of the Every Child Matters agenda. It also links to the following aspects within the six areas of learning in the Early Years Foundation stage:

- Creative Development through imaginative play, music and dance

- Physical Development through movement using equipment and materials

- Communication, Language and Literacy through handwriting

- Personal Social and Emotional Development through increasing self-confidence and self-esteem

This programme benefits all children, but has also been found very helpful for children with special education needs, from learning difficulties to dyspraxia.
