If you have the Mini Yo! cards, use them as flashcards.

Mini Moves

This month’s Skills are:

Crawl – Jump – Shuffle

Children in the early years need to learn and have the opportunity to develop some basic physical skills. This section will help them to develop the skills.

Introduce your child to each move individually to give them a chance to try them and to develop.

Children can follow these films of the moves:




Combine two or all three moves to create new activities

Here is an Active Story to get you started:

Cat, Kangaroo & Penguin

Can you create your own Active Story?

Add the skills to activities you already do to give children more opportunity to develop them.

If you can, print off the attached flashcards to use during activities or give them to your children to try them when they like. This will also help with their language acquisition.

If you have the Mini Moves Cards, you can use them too.

Learning Through Movement and Play

When children in the early years are moving and playing they will be developing holistically and learning.

Starting simply, this month will be focussing on Physical Well-being through movement and play. Have a look at the diagram below.

Here are some activities that can easily be done at home:

Follow the Balloon

Great to help children to focus and follow instructions.

Big Twinkle Tinkle Little Star

Great for language acquisition.

Why be still when doing nursery rhymes! Oh, and apologies for my voice…

Here is a downloadable activity for children learning the alphabet:

Active Alphabet

(These activities cover Language, Literacy and Communication, Mathematics/Numeracy, PSED Health and Wellbeing and Cultural Diversity, Expressive Arts and Design Creative Development, Knowledge of and Understanding the World and includes the Mini Moves Skills.)

When children are being active they will naturally develop:


Agility – Balance – Coordination – Spatial Awareness

Children (and adults) will need to develop good balance, agility, spatial awareness and coordination to underpin their physical ability, not only for games, activities and sports but also in order to complete day-to-day tasks.

It is therefore important to provide many opportunities, especially in the early years, for children to develop these foundations.

Here is a great downloadable activity that will get both you and your children stronger:

Can you Balance

Many Mini Yo! moves will help develop balance. Try some of the balancing ideas below too:


We’ve Got you Covered!

We also have physical resources that are great to pick up and use on a day-to-day. These include:
