Chase the rhythm – Guidance Notes


Songs to motivate children to move, developing both the body and brain. Dance like a chicken, catch the flavour of the ice cream, enjoy splashing in the puddles, be a rock and roll star, move with the groove to the disco with dough. Chase the Rhythm makes learning fun.

This guide will show you the words and suggested actions for each song, links to EYFS, Links to KS1, any resources you may want to use and alternative ways or extensions to the song.
