This is our second Junior Jive age group – Maestros on the Move! Once our Maestros on the Move start walking – and running – we focus on different motor skills, including inhibitory control. This age group also tends to become wary of strangers
We build our Mini Maestros’ confidence – focusing on all their little successes. We continue to focus on motor development, by making our activities energetic. We also include a lot more language development, as our maestros start communicating more fluently with us.
Our Master Maestros are gaining confidence in their motor and language abilities and so we focus more on social skills as well as music skills. Our Master Maestros love learning about music composers, and are keen to participate in new learning experiences
At this age, the children are able to concentrate for longer and have a more developed fine motor co-ordination. We therefore focus on learning a specific instrument, like the glockenspiel, recorder or marimbas. Learning to play an instrument also teaches other skills.
