Article features in Play & Playground Professionals Magazine

An article written by Percussion Play features in this month's edition of Play and Playground Professionals Magazine. The article titled 'Musical Instruments Help Improve Core Stability' discusses how play and particularly 'musical play' can help develop children physically for the academic challenges that lay ahead.

'Outdoor music and play are great for building a child’s body awareness, engaging the vestibular system (responsible for balance and spatial awareness) and increasing the child’s confidence in movement. The large-scale movements fostered during outdoor play help to improve a child’s pro-prioception – the ability to sense their bodies orientation and its relation to objects in their environment"

The article was written by Percussion Play Business Development Manager Kate Mannerings who has a background in Early Years education. Kate highlights how outdoor music lends itself to endless openings for learning through play. "Outdoor musical instruments (resistant to weather) can be left in play spaces year-round, and can therefore enhance continuous provision and allow children to develop their skills during independent learning time."
